SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Jim Frazier (D-Discovery Bay) honored Wooden Valley Winery and Vineyards as the Small Business of the Year for Assembly District 11 during a luncheon ceremony today in Sacramento.
Owned by the Lanza Family, Wooden Valley Winery, situated in the Suisun Valley, has been producing award-winning wines since 1933.
“It is my honor to recognize the Lanza Family and present them with this much deserved recognition,” Frazier said. “Today, four generations of family continue the traditions set in place by the first generation - crafting exceptional varieties of wine from the surrounding vineyards of the Suisun Valley. The Lanza family proudly supports the Wounded Warrior Project with its Food Truck Friday events. I can’t thank the Lanza Family enough for their commitment to veterans. Hard work and dedication has led to great success for the family, and in turn they give back through charitable giving and enhance the quality of life in the community in which they work and live.”
