“I have a membership.”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

My review, although it shows as a solo, it's a mix of several visits I made already there. I am a member of their club.
As a local, I decided to go to a wine tasting at Suisun Valley with a friend of mine with my wife being our "designated driver". As owner of a small limousine company, I brought several clients to the wineries in Suisun Valley but never had the opportunity to try them myself. And I was glad to know that, although they are not "fancy" or they are not "boutique" wineries like in Napa or Sonoma, the quality of most part of the produced wines is very good.

I was specially impressed with Wooden Valley winery. The quality of their wines is at the same level or even better, in some cases, than the wines in Napa. I suggest the Merlot and the Riesling varieties. They are my favorite. They have two types for Riesling actually. And for those who prefer more dessert wines, I suggest White Gamay or Miscela.

The hosting needs some improving yet but it's much better since I went there for the first time on 2012.

And their prices are chiper than the ones in Napa. You won't regret.

“I'll be back!”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

We went to the final summer fundraiser (wounded warriors) which apparently happens every 3rd Friday in summer. They have food trucks, live music, raffles (with proceeds to charity), and of course, wine. We tried the Cab and it was very nice! The area is nicely landscaped with lots of picnic tables and everyone had a great time. We'll be back!

“A little gem”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

A family run winery that experiments with numerous varietals, this is always a fun place to visit. Their wines are reasonably priced and very satisfying. Nice change of pace from Napa or Sonoma. Laid back and peaceful.

“Good wine at a good price”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

Wooden Valley has a large tasting room and offers a variety of meats, cheese, and crackers that we bought for a picnic the next day. There was no tasting fee. They offered a variety of whites and reds and although we drink both we preferred the lighter, sweeter wines from Wooden Valley. We ended up leaving with a case of primarily Riesling and White Gamay with a couple Miscela. The case discount brought it to about $10/bottle - good everyday drinking wine. We did, however, see it in Vons for $9 (on sale with multiple bottle purchase) after visiting the winery.
