GV Cellars purchased the 40 acre property in Green Valley in 2005, however, the property has been continuously planted with grape vines since the early 1950s. In our 30 acre vineyard we grow 6 distinct varietals: Dolcetto, Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Syrah. We produce these single varietals in house and enjoy crafting new style blends that incorporate either estate varietals or high quality fruit from around the region. Innovation and creativity is our focus. We release limited specialty bottles at least once every year. Last year we released the Platinum 2015 Super Rosso. This year, we released the 2017 Other Sister Red Blend and the 2018 Dolce Rosato.
SOLANO COUNTY / GREEN VALLEY
Solano County/Green Valley is a small valley approximately one mile wide and four miles long. This small valley has roughly 400 acres of grapes within its boundaries and lies between the Vaca Mountains and the Mount George Range. The Solano County/Green Valley American Viticulture Area (AVA) shares a similar climate and soil to that of neighboring Napa Valley AVA's. These neighboring AVA’s include the prestigious Coombsville region and the Los Carneros region.
Our climate is directly influenced by the highly favorable coastal influence of the San Pablo Bay, where marine air crosses into the valley. This coastal influence creates a long and cool growing season that extends the maturing periods of our grapes, making distinguished and expressive wines.
Along with these prime weather conditions, our mixture of volcanic, conejo clay loam, and alluvial soil adds unique characteristics and structures to our wines. Thus, with our favorable coastal influence, mild heat, cooling winds, and distinct soil, Solano County/Green Valley has become a reliable source of grapes for many renowned Napa Valley Wineries.
