Solis Winery of Gilroy, with owner/grower Vic Vanni

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 Angelo 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 wine in a

friendly, down-to-earth, trustworthy environment, and they passed that passion on to their sons, Michael and

Vic, who took over the family business in 2007. Quality always comes first at Solis Winery. With his extensive

knowledge and an unparalleled attention to detail, winemaker Michael Vanni has produced some of the region’s

most outstanding wines and unique varietals. But despite the premium caliber of the wines, you’ll find no wine

snobs here. Vic Vanni oversees the tasting room and trains his staff to provide a warm and welcoming

experience for all visitors. There is simply no better place to sit back and relax than on the Solis Winery back

porch, sipping a glass of wine and enjoying the scenic views of vineyards nestled against the vibrant green

Gabilan mountain range. Once you’ve had a taste, we know you’ll be back for more!
