Show 547, October 14, 2023: Suisun Valley Wine Co-op and Sunset Cellars with Fah Sathirapongsasuti Part One

Fah Sathirapongsasuti of Suisun Valley Co Op

Suisun Valley Wine Co-op in Fairfield (established in 2007) represents three local, family owned micro wineries with distinct wine styles and approaches to winemaking tasting their wines in a single, unique, visitor-friendly indoor and outdoor tasting room.”

“The three member wineries (Sunset Cellars, Blacksmith Cellars and King Andrew Vineyards) share a common goal of crafting high quality, distinctive wines from grapes grown locally in Suisun Valley and nearby regions. As long-time friends, the winemakers collaborate, exchange ideas, and lend hands in the vineyards and the cellars. With deep mutual respect, they are proud to represent one another’s wine at the Co-op.”

“Most of the tasting room staff at the Wine Co-op are actual wine producers and grape growers. They all take turns pouring the wines. While visiting them, you will learn firsthand their vision and philosophies behind the wines. The Co-op Team enjoys spending time with visitors and like sharing Suisun Valley’s rustic and authentic charm.”

Fah Sathirapongsasuti, the principal of the Suisun Valley Wine Co-op and Winemaker and Co-owner of Sunset Cellar, joins us to uncork all that is the Suisun Valley Wine Co-op.

“Winemaker Matt Smith built Blacksmith Cellars on the philosophy of crafting distinctive varietal driven and blended wines that he is passionate about. The process of winemaking is a lifestyle he embraces and enjoys and it shows in his releases.

“Founded by Doug and Katsuko Sparks in their garage in San Francisco’s Inner Sunset District, Sunset Cellars believes in “Zen Zin” a minimalist winemaking style and respect for our grower’s efforts in the vineyards. In 2007 they founded the Suisun Valley Wine Co-op. Fah and Mio succeeded them as winemaker and co-owners in 2021”

“Wine grower Roger King and his wife Carol (King Andrews Vineyards) bring you unique and boutique wines of Suisun Valley and Solano County. Small lot winemaking from the vineyard to the winery brings fresh vibrant wines to your palate. They grow, vint and bottle their wines with limited intervention.”
