Join the team from Virtue Juice Bar in Vacaville to see how they make organic cold-pressed juice packed with micronutrients, smoothies (and more!) using fresh organic produce from Lockewood Acres. Farmer Ben Lyons of Lockewood will speak about his diverse family farm, what’s growing now and where to find his delicious products. Winemaker Gina Richmond from Mangels Vineyards will discuss her methods for making premium wines from Suisun Valley varietals – a tradition of winemaking started by their great grandfather over 100 years ago. Find out more about Mangels Vineyards’ special 3-pack of Caora wine, with proceeds from sales going toward Sustainable Solano’s fire relief fund.
Bounty of the County is a celebration of Solano County agriculture, restaurants and wine. Each week features live presentations by a different farmer-chef-winemaker trio. In light of the destruction from the wildfires, this year’s event will raise funds for Solano farmers who lost property, crops and animals. All donations through Sustainable Solano through the end of September will go to help those farmers. Continue to support local food through special Bounty of the County meals at participating restaurants, promotions at wineries and buying local food from Solano County’s farmers.
