SUISUN VALLEY - The latest business to open its doors in Suisun Valley is combining two pastimes: food and wine.

The Vezer family, owners of Vezer Family Vineyards in Suisun Valley, will host a soft opening for their Barista Cafe and Deli, and their Suisun Valley Wine Exchange this weekend.

Located near the intersection of Mankas Corner Road and Abernathy Road, the deli will carry an assortment of sandwiches, meats, cheeses, pastries and gourmet coffees.

"Our goal is to become a destination in the valley, and add to what the other tasting rooms, restaurants and businesses are already contributing to the area," said general manager Giselle Vezer.

On Thursday, the final touches were being added to the driveway, deli and parking lot. The tasting room will not be open this weekend. Vezer said the family is still waiting to receive the necessary Alcoholic Beverage Control permit.

"This location is perfect because we are in the middle of a growing Valley," Vezer said. "The are many possibilities, and the valley has great potential."

The family decided to build the tasting room off its property after attempts to have it in the vineyard were unsuccessful.

The grand opening will include performances by the Sound Bites, giveaways from Jelly Belly and works by a water color artist.

"We really want to give people a special place to visit, eat, drink and enjoy the outdoors," Vezer said. "The larger wine tours are big and sometimes feel like rushed job. Our goal is to make the experience more intimate."

The official grand opening will be in September to coincide with the second day of the Suisun Valley Fun Family Farm Days.
