Tucked away off the beaten path in the lesser-known Solano County Green Valley AVA, Wirth Ranch has old growth, heritage vines and is truly a hidden gem.
Steve Wirth is a second generation farmer who took over this vineyard from his father. Wirth Ranch is located in the heart of Solano County’s Green Valley, between Napa and Suisun Valley. Planted on steep sloped and iron-rich volcanic soils, the site is dry farmed organically with no use of any pesticides or herbicides. The Valdiguié vines were originally planted in 1948.
