Frank and Liz Vezer have been growing grapes in the Suisun soil since 2001. They purchased the Blue Victorian, which for many years was a private residence, and converted it into a working winery in 2008. The family intended to lease the property to another winery once it was complete, but by the time they restored the building and built a modern 12,000-sq. ft. production facility out back, they had grown too attached to part with it. The Blue Victorian is one of three Vezer wineries in the valley. Mankas Gardens and the Blue Victorian are both open daily, while the tasting room on the Vezer's ranch estate is open by appointment only.
Surrounded by acres of lush vineyards and palm trees, the classic sky blue Victorian building is a beloved local landmark. Visitors can enjoy wine in the tasting room or take a tour of the barrel room. Unique blending sessions give guests the opportunity to watch winemakers blend three different Vezer wines straight from the barrel into their glass to enjoy. The grounds are gorgeous year-round, with two grape varietals grown on the property. Pick up a glass of wine, sit out on the porch, and admire the view with family and friends.
The Vezers also host concerts and events year-round, many at the Blue Victorian. Visit www.vezer.com to see a calendar of upcoming events.
