From 12 noon to 5pm, Il Fiorello Olive Oil Company will host an onsite game of “Who Dunnit?” during the Suisun Valley AVA Anniversary Celebration. Come enjoy tastes of wine and beer, along with a hearty soup, and help solve the mystery of Murder at the Mill! (Gumshoes not required.)

Suisun Valley AVA, also sometimes called an “appellation”, was established in 1982 and was one of the first to receive its designation in this state! We are wrapping up our 35th anniversary as a designated appellation, and we are very proud of it!
