FAIRFIELD/SUISUN VALLEY, CA - A short distance from California's world-famous wine regions - Napa and Sonoma - you'll discover a bucolic wine country in Suisun Valley and Green Valley. An idyllic destination, the Suisun (pronounced sue-soon) and Green valleys are conveniently located less than 50 miles from Sacramento or San Francisco, off Interstate 80 near Fairfield. Driving past the suburban and urban elements of the city and, suddenly, spread-out before you is rural California...beautiful valleys bounded by two coastal ranges. The valleys have roots dating back to the 1800s and represent more than a century of continuous wine grape growing activity.
