While just 8 miles long north to south and 3 miles wide east to west, Suisun Valley has a full 14 degree daytime temperature differential from lower valley to upper valley. This allows for proper site selection of whites needing to retain acidity and reds needing warm temps to ripen. Definitive climate study was done by Dr. Paul Skinner of Terra Spase, which revealed the direct impacts of marine air flowing from the Pacific over San Pablo Bay into Suisun Valley. It is that significant marine influence that provides premium growing conditions.
What has become most interesting is the western hillside planting commencing in 2015. Significant volcanic rock geologically associated with the southern run out of the Mt George Range, diligently prepared and set to test Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Petite Sirah. It will be years before this effort can be brought to bottled wine but early results are eagerly sought.
A large selection of varieties are grown in the confines of the Suisun Valley: Albarino, Barbera, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Gamay, Grenache, Grenache Blanc, Malbec, Malvasia Bianca, Merlot, Mouvedre, Muscat Canelli, Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Primitivo, Rousanne, Sauvignon Blanc, Sangiovese, Syrah, Trousseau Noir, Trousseau Gris, Verdelho, Viognier, White Riesling, and Zinfandel.
