SUISUN VALLEY

Suisun Valley appellation is a pristine growing region nestled between two coastal mountain ranges southeast of Napa Valley.  Suisun Valley lies within the southern end of two ranges of the Coast Range- the Vaca Mountains to the east and the Mt. George Range to the west.  Suisun Valley comes to an end in the south at the marshlands of Suisun Bay.  To the north Suisun Valley rolls up into Wooden Valley at the Napa County line.

Climate

Coastal area climates characterized by cool moist winds.  Spring frosts are often mitigated by proximity to Suisun Bay

Terroir

Consists of a mixture of soils, zoned within the valley floor and additional none typed soils within the undeveloped hillsides.

A wide variety of whites and reds.  Reds are fruit forward and complex with notes of dark fruit, jam, leather and dark chocolate.  Whites are clean, crisp, fruity, and delicate.

MENDOZA, ARGENTINA

In December of 1816, the governor of Mendoza, Don Toribio Luzuriaga, built & donated two large properties to Don Jose of San Martin and his daughter Doña Tomasa in recognition of service to Argentina. The property was later acquired by Don Lorenzo Guerrero on August 2, 1946. Since then three generations of the Guerrero family has worked in the vineyard with a great passion for the Malbec that they grow. 

Climate

The region has a continental climate and semi-arid desert conditions. The region experiences four distinct seasons with no extremes in temperatures. This provides for a relatively uneventful annual growth cycle for grapevines- especially winter dormancy.
