Welcome to Suncé Winery. Suncé, meaning "sun" in Croatian, is located on Olivet Road west of Santa Rosa in Sonoma County. Where olive trees once dominated the landscape, old headpruned vines now quietly assert their beauty. Nestled in this serene environment, Suncé Winery provides a tranquil, romantic, yet down-to-earth atmosphere. Suncé is a family winery located in the Russian River Valley appellation of Sonoma County. We specialize in small lots of vineyard-designated varietal wines and proprietary Winemaker blends. Suncé Winery focuses on single vineyard production, adhering as much as possible to environmentally sustainable farming with our vineyard partners. We carefully monitor the size of the crop in proportion to the health and vigor of the plants. With the exception of our Sauvignon Blanc, our wines are aged in barrels carefully sourced from primarily French and some Bulgarian, Hungarian, and American coopers, further enhancing the unique properties of each wine.

We are quiet familiar with wine-touring in general, just not in California. In fact, I will admit to being unfamiliar with most California wines (I have my favourites, but don't know much beyond...
