About Ledgewood Creek Winery

The Beginning 
Dean and Bunnie FrisbieIn the early 1980s, we, Dean and Bunny Frisbie, started visiting Suisun Valley because it’s only an hour drive north of San Francisco. Drawn to the tranquility of this rural community, we bought a pear orchard in 1985. We learned the Suisun Valley climate is perfect for growing several grape varieties, and since 1989, our pear orchard has been fully planted over to vineyards, featuring Bordeaux, Burgundy, and Rhône Valley grapes.

We named Ledgewood Creek Winery after the creek that meanders along the northern border of our estate. Located in the heart of the Suisun Valley American Viticultural Area (AVA), it was the fertile valley soils that attracted us to the Suisun Valley and continues to keep us here today.
Our History 

After more than a decade of supplying wine grapes to leading Napa and Sonoma wineries, we felt it was time to make and market our own wine. We hired Larry Langbehn, an experienced winemaker in Northern California whose talents are sought by wine companies from all over the world, including China and Europe. The 2001 harvest led to our Suisun Valley winery's first release.

Winemaker Larry Langbehn Talks About Our Wines

"When I started working with Ledgewood Creek in 2002, I discovered a ranch with the highest diversity of unusually excellent quality grapes that I’ve seen in the last 15 years. It took about two years to figure out how to optimize the technical methods of winemaking, and how to blend these grapes to obtain the very best expression of the vineyard site. The results have been stunning."
