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.

Taste of Suisun Valley

Suisun Valley has more going on than just grapes!

While you're initial trip to the Suisun Valley AVA might be wine tasting geared (and we don't blame you), be sure to stop in at the local farm and produce stands. Suisun Valley has several farms open year-round with fresh, ripe fruits and vegetables. Many of these are family-owned farms and we're sure you won't be able to resist a myriad of juicy peaches, sweet corn, strawberries, plums,  tomatoes, squash, watermelon and much more.
