Wirth Ranch is home to old growth, heritage vines that make it truly a hidden gem that’s worth traveling off the beaten path to discover. The vineyard is tucked away on the western edge of Solano County’s Green Valley AVA, one of the smallest appellations in Sonoma between Napa and Suisun Valley. Valdiguié vines were originally planted in 1948. Planted on steep slopes in iron-rich volcanic soils, Wirth Ranch is organic and dry farmed. Fog is a hallmark of the area, which regularly travels up from San Francisco Bay to blanket the slopes of this cool climate area. We have the pleasure of working with owner Steve Wirth, a second generation farmer who took over this vineyard from his father and is very close with vines. In fact, he lives on the property.
