Sipping Savant in Suisun Valley

manakras corner.jpgAs the Sipping Savant name would indicate, I like to 'sip' wine.  I discovered a new Wine Region and took some friend along for the visit.  In between wine tasting at Ledgewood Creek, olive oil tasting at Il Fiorello, and then wine tasting at Mankas Corner/Vezer Vineyards Sipping Savant Entourage were in need of sustenance. Time for lunch.

At the stop sign for Mankas Corner, Sipping Savant Entourage found the Vintage Corner Caffé.  What a wonderful find!  Their cuisine has a great mix of comfort and continental and all very, very fresh.
