Caymus Finalizes Permits and Planning for Second Solano County Winery 

Caymus Winery is leaving yet another prominent footprint in Solano County with approvals nearly complete for second winery.

This new one -- Caymus-Suisun -- is a 200,000-gallon facility in the Suisun Valley AVA west of Fairfield in the mountainous foothills which separate Napa and Solano Counties. It may also be a set of footsteps to be followed by other Napa Valley vintners and growers.  

The Wagner Family, still smarting from Napa County's bureaucratic purgatories, is already in the final stages of constructing a 5.5-million gallon winery at 2650 Cordelia Rd., south of I-80, about five miles south of the proposed new winery 

 Indeed, this new winery by Caymus -- which could use on-site grapes for a top-of-the-line estate bottling -- could mean the biggest boost to the premium wine respect demanded by growers and vintners in that growing appellation. For more on that, see: Suisun/Green Valley vineyards get respect from Napa & seek more distance from Solano Delta grapes.

Project location

According to county records, the Caymus-Suisun Winery, located west of Mankas Corner at 4991 Suisun Valley Road, Fairfield, will occupy 28.89 acres of agricultural land.

Currently the existing site includes approximately five acres containing the remnants of a dried fruit processing facility that are currently used for existing vineyard operations and equipment storage. The balance of the property is planted in vineyards.

Wine Industry Insight reached out to Caymus for comment, but none was received in time for this article. Sources close to the winery projects said that everyone involved is time-stressed and working overtime to get bottling and, possibly, crush at the Cordelia facility operational for this fall's crush. See more notes at the bottom of this article.

Because our billing company of the past nine years was bought by a company that does not accept American Express, we have had to change our subscription process, and the method of accessing premium content. (Here's more about that.)

Below are two links that lead to the same premium content:

(1) Long-time subscribers billed by CCBill should click this link UNLESS they have an American Express subscription that has expired (current Amex accounts are still active). This is also the link for former American Express users who have converted to Visa/Mastercard.

(2) American Express subscribers who did not want to convert to Visa/Mastercard and who have signed up using our new Stripe account should click this link.

New Subscriber Info

For those of you who read our free daily News Fetch email links, some of the following may be redundant.

However -- especially for new subscribers -- it's important to know that I don't send you a separate email every time an article contains premium content. That would be spamming ... especially for folks who read News Fetch every day.

This is because most Wine Executive News subscribers usually have subscribed to News Fetch prior to joining the premium content site.

When you sign up for premium, I always check to see if you are also getting the free News Fetch. If not, I sign you up so you will get the news quickly.

Where can you find premium content?

Every article that contains premium content will usually be the top link in the News Fetch unless some monumental news bumps it to #2.

In addition, articles that contain premium content will also be in the "Features" category on the Wine Industry Insight web site:
