Our Story

The Family

Vezér Family Vineyard is a Suisun Valley Winery, which is owned by Frank and Liz Vezér. Their winery is best know for their Petite Sirah and their Zinfandel, which are rated among the best in the region, and are used in well-known wines, such as Sin Zin and Ravenswood.

The Suisun Valley has the perfect soil and micro-climate which enables these vines to develop the choicest grapes. For growing Petite Sirah, the Suisun Valley Appellation is rated as the oldest and best in the State of California by the U.C Davis University.

In 2001, the Vezér’s decided to establish their own wines and produced their first vintage of Zinfandel in the year 2003. Since then, they have produced eight additional vintages. The Vezér wines are winning accolades and awards from across the country, as well with international panels.

The Vezér family practices the 1938 approach to their wine making, which was born with Frank Vezér’s father, Frank Vezér II. This method consists of balancing opposing elements to create wines that are dynamic, complex, and embody the classical ideals that define the world’s finest wines.

Suisun Valley - "The Petite Sirah Capital of the World!"

“The Napa Back Road” or “Napa’s Little Sister Sue” is the wine country oasis of Suisun Valley ( pronounced “Sue-Soon”). Nestled between two coastal mountain ranges and only 12 miles from historic downtown Napa or 45 miles from San Francisco.

Suisun Valley, is a pristine landscape dotted with premium wineries, the old Pioneer Village of Mankas Corners, farm-fresh produce stands, and quaint eateries. Valley Vintners produce quality wines suited to everyone’s tastes and wallet, from fun Rosés and fruit forward Sauvignon Blancs to serious Reds winning such prestigious Double Gold Medals at International Competitions.

Suisun Valley received its American Viticultural Area designation just 28 years ago, only one year after Napa Valley. The Western Solano County Grape Growers Association successfully petitioned the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (BATF), and subsequently received formal designation of Suisun Valley as an identified American Viticultural Area. In 1983 the 15,000 acres of the  Suisun Valley AVA were included in the formation of the North Coast AVA. The North Coast AVA includes Green Valley, Napa, Sonoma, and Mendocino Counties, (with areas of Lake and Marin Counties) into one overarching ultra premium growing region, renowned internationally for high quality fruit grown and skilled winemaking traditions.

Suisun Valley enjoys great community heritage which dates back to the mid 1800′s. In fact prior to Prohibition, Suisun Valley had bragging rights as home to the “Largest winery in North America”. Napa Valley Vintners have long valued the quality of fruit and have been the largest buyers of Suisun Valley fruit for their bottled poetry. Currently, the 3,000 acres of Suisun Valley wine grapes are being used by 18 bonded winemakers with 8 Tasting Rooms open daily and 10 others by appointment.

Known as the premier valley in California to grow Petite Sirah, make sure that this varietal is on the tasting list when you visit the Suisun Valley. A special brand, La Salette a 65% Petite Sirah blend that will make your palate applaud and leave no doubt how a fantastic wine should always taste!
