Just across the bay from San Francisco, Solano is home to wineries and wetlands, farms and candy factories, amusement parks and more. German immigrants made the first wine in the mid-1800s but vines were cultivated even earlier. Solano’s growing conditions resemble those of neighboring Napa Valley and in the early days of California wine the two counties were often linked as “the Napa Valley-Solano” district.
