The Suisun Valley
in Solano County is one of the wine country's best-kept secrets. Although the area’s winemaking tradition dates back to the late 1800s, planting began to expand steadily during the last 20 years.

, wineries in what is described as Rustic Wine Country
are a must-visit attraction, and as a bonus, your pup gets to join you. Vacaville hotels and inns
