At Solis Winery, it’s all about the wine—and it has been for more than 100 years.
All Solis Winery wines are grown and produced at the Vanni Estate Vineyard in Gilroy in the heart of the Santa Clara Valley, California’s oldest continuous wine growing region. From planting the vines and harvesting the grapes to producing and bottling the wines, everything is done on-site. Nothing ever leaves the property—until bottles go home with happy customers!
The original winery was founded in 1917 by Italian immigrant Alfonso Bertero on rich, fertile land that was once part of the Rancho de Solis Mexican land grant. David and Valerie Vanni purchased the winery in 1989 and renamed it Solis Winery. The Vannis had a passion for creating extraordinary wines in a friendly, down-to-earth, environment, and they passed that passion on to their sons, Michael and Vic, who took over the winery in 2007. Vic retired from the wine business in 2022, and Michael and his wife Julie are now working together to continue the family tradition of excellence.
