Suisun Valley Wine Series

The emerging wine region

The Suisun Valley AVA (American Viticulture Area) has been a hidden gem in Solano County producing excellent wine that rivals areas such as the Napa Valley.  We produced a series of videos on the growing and winemaking for an exhibition of winemaking in Solano County.

We were privileged to have Chuck Wagner, the esteemed owner of Caymus-Suisun Winery, share insights about the unique viticultural treasures that the Suisun Valley offers. As part of the exhibition, he passionately discusses the distinctive attributes of this remarkable winegrowing region.

With just a handful of wineries in this area, Suisun Valley is starting to capture the hearts of wine enthusiasts.

The Growers

For the exhibition, in order to provide a comprehensive perspective on the winemaking process in Solano County, we seized a rare opportunity to sit down with a seasoned grower and a passionate winemaker amidst the lush vineyards that give life to Suisun Valley wines. Meet Mike Oman from TZ Estate Vineyards and Don Huffman from Whim Cellars, as they delve into the intricacies of cultivating top-tier grapes for winemaking.

These two experts share invaluable insights into the myriad factors that contribute to the creation of superb grapes. From the nuances of soil and climate to the careful selection of rootstock and the meticulous professional care lavished upon the vines, every element plays a pivotal role in nurturing exceptional grapes that form the backbone of our local wineries.

The Wine Makers

Nestled within the breathtaking Suisun Valley American Viticultural Area, Bally Keal Estate spans eighty acres of the lush Suisun Valley wine region. Here, the passionate winemakers meticulously handcraft every bottle, exclusively from estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.

With 200,000+ visitors, 300+ events, and $300,000 raised, they needed support to refinance and ensure this vibrant space thrives for years to come.
