Vezer's Blue Victorian Winery


Vezér Family Vineyard is a Suisun Valley Winery, which is owned by Frank and Liz Vezér. Their winery is best know for their Petite Sirah and their Zinfandel, which are rated among the best in the region, and are used in well-known wines, such as Sin Zin and Ravenswood.

The Suisun Valley has the perfect soil and micro-climate which enables these vines to develop the choicest grapes. For growing Petite Sirah, the Suisun Valley Appellation is rated as the oldest and best in the State of California by the U.C Davis University.

In 2001, the Vezér’s decided to establish their own wines and produced their first vintage of Zinfandel in the year 2003. Since then, they have produced eight additional vintages. The Vezér wines are winning accolades and awards from across the country, as well with international panels.

The Vezér family practices the 1938 approach to their wine making, which was born with Frank Vezér’s father, Frank Vezér II. This method consists of balancing opposing elements to create wines that are dynamic, complex, and embody the classical ideals that define the world’s finest wines.

The Story of Blue Moon


Our story begins in the Sandlot Brewery at Coors Field in Denver, Colorado, at the beginning of the 1995 baseball season. After earning his Ph.D. in brewing from the University of Brussels, our founder and head brewmaster Keith Villa returned stateside with the goal of brewing well-crafted beers inspired by Belgian styles, with a refreshing twist. Amongst the many beers one fan favorite emerged, in true baseball fashion they called it ‘Bellyslide Wit’. Someone said, “A beer this good only comes around once in a blue moon,” and thus Blue Moon® Belgian White Belgian-Style Wheat Ale was born.

Herradura Tequila - Luck is Earned - No Shortcuts


Making the world’s best tequila is all about the details. It’s about doing things the right way.

Our recipe is equal parts passion, and skill. It’s why we age our tequilas until they’re ready, and not a moment less. And it’s what pushed us to craft the world’s very first Reposado tequila back in 1974. Because here, we believe in creating our own luck, and never leaving anything to chance.

That’s the way it should be done. And at Tequila Herradura, it’s the way we’ve been doing it for the past 145 years.

Why Mexican Food is So Popular in the United States


A common question I’ve been getting lately is why Mexican food is so popular in the United States, and of course I want to answer “because it tastes great”. While this is certainly true, it’s not the only reason Mexican food can be found on almost every restaurant menu and is commonly eaten at home.

There are several reasons why salsa is the number one condiment in the United States and more tortillas are sold than hot dog buns. Immigration plays a key role, and is thought to be the number one reason for Mexican food’s popularity. There is a large Mexican American population throughout the United States, and they have continued to proudly serve their native dishes. In part to help keep their cultural history alive, and because it is something that they are familiar with. Over time these dishes and recipes have been shared across all cultures, and now it is hard to find a restaurant that does not have quesadillas and nachos on their menu.

The United States also shares a border with Mexico so it only makes sense that Americans would be familiar with the food. The close proximity of the two countries is also what led to the birth of Tex-Mex cuisine. Now you can find restaurant chains that specialize in Tex-Mex cooking across the U.S.

Frito-Lays introduction of the tortilla chip in the 1960’s solidified Mexican cuisine’s popularity with Americans, especially when Doritos were introduced to the market. Now anyone could eat Mexican food out of a vending machine. Fast, affordable and delicious, it’s no wonder it often seems like everyone is eating Mexican food.

The fact that Mexican food is fast and affordable are the other main reasons for its popularity. It is well known that Americans always seem to be in a hurry, and this often applies to meal times. There are several nationwide fast food restaurants that specialize in Mexican, and for an incredibly low price you can easily order enough to feed two. Best of all with most of these fast food restaurants you don’t even need to get out of the car. Simply order, pay and pick up at the drive-thru window.

These are some of the main reasons why Mexican food is so popular in the United States, though I still firmly believe that it is because it simply tastes great. The spices, flavors, textures and even colors all combine to make authentic Mexican cuisine something delicious and special. If there is a special reason for Mexican food’s popularity I would love to hear from you or if you just want to leave any friendly comments or suggestions.

The Story Behind Favela's Fusion



Veronica Favela-Diaz is the owner of Favela’s Restaurants located in Fairfield and Vacaville. Born and raised in Northern California, Veronica is a first generation of Mexican decent and is the first of three children to Elisardo Favela and Josefina Saucedo. She was lured into the culinary world at the young age when her father’s passion for food was the center of attention at dinner time.

By 1993 and demand from out-of-town customers, prompted Veronica to expand the business and open a second location in Vacaville which has been a success since it’s opening. Never straying from the original intention, never losing focus on consistent and affordable Mexican food and excellent service, the restaurant continued its steady rate of growth. By 1998 a third location on the north side of Fairfield was opened.

While attending College, a young Veronica and her father found a need for a new style of Mexican restaurant; it would be a casual style with festive surroundings and by 1991 the first Favela’s in downtown Fairfield was opened. Two years into the business and never giving up in school, Veronica successfully completed college and obtained a Bachelor Degree in Education from the Sacramento State University.

Shortly after marrying her best friend Edgar, the couple traveled all over México to uncover the traditional “Sabores de Mexico” and thanks to the entrepreneurial success of the restaurants; they were encouraged to elevate their own standards in the Mexican cuisine. These travels inspired them to open in 2008 their latest venue: - “Favela’s Fusion Tequila Lounge”. This restaurant obtained the prize for the Best New Business in Solano County and has obtained great recognition in the community for the fresh contemporary new take on Mexican cuisine.

Veronica has always been eager to improve things in the community; she has been a member of the Fairfield Planning Commission and during her term, she assisted in the re-development of Fairfield’s Downtown.

She whole-heartedly believes in always providing the best customer service, continuously learning about food, culture and always having fun with “La Familia”.

All About Tapas Small Plates


Endulge me for a moment. There's a lot of quirky history about the origin how tapas small plates came into being. Let me regale you with a few interesting tidbits about the evolution of its tradition...

First, how do you pronounce Tapas? When pronounced correctly, it sounds like [TAH-pahs]. If pronounced like a typical United States-er, like me, it might be heard as sounding like TAP-uhs... It's your choice!

Second, what is the definition of Tapas? Well, I browsed, and peeked and looked everywhere. This is the best tapas definition I could find.

Popular throughout Spain in bars and restaurants, tapas are appetizers that usually accompany SHERRY or other APÉRITIFS or COCKTAILS. They can also form an entire meal and can range from simple items such as olives or cubes of ham and cheese to more elaborate preparations like cold omelets, snails in a spicy sauce, stuffed peppers and miniature sandwiches.

Sounds absolutely like my kind of meal! I love anything "miniature". Including my food!

Now on to more of the history of tapas...

Tapas and the tapas small plates tradition come from Spain as the story goes. They are snacks. As simple as that! These Spanish snacks are small plates with little portions of olives, cheese, bread and lots other unique and creative combinations of food and tapas ingredients.

In Spanish, the word Tapa means "cover". So how does this relate to "snacks" you ask? Well, there are several interesting explanations.

The most commonly cited narrative of the etymology of tapa is that it is an item, either a piece of bread or a flat card of some kind that would often be placed on top of a drink to protect it from those annoying, buzzy flies (smart!) Somewhere in time, it became a custom to put on top of the "cover" small nibbles of delectable goodies (really smart!) Viola! Tapas small plates were created - IF this explanation is to be believed.

Another theory is that the tapas "covered" the appetite between the time Spaniards finished work and when they would take their late evening meals. (Sheesh! I would be hungry too if I had to wait that late to eat!)

There's also the story that some experts believe that the name, tapa or tappas originated sometime around the 16th century. At that time, a few tavern owners from Castilla-La Mancha discovered that the strong, odiferous smell of mature cheese could help disguise the fact that they were serving bad wine from their establishments.

Thus, serving free cheese with the wine "covered" the bad taste of the wine and the fact that they were cheating their customers! The offering of free cheese when serving cheap wine, became wildly popular.

Unscrupulous practices? Yes, but the mouth-watering custom of tapas small plates was invented, according to this version of it's origin.

One more interesting bit of tapas history:

A few researchers assert that the tapa was born when the Spanish king, Alfonso the 10th (known as The Wise), became ill and had to take small bites of food with some wine between meals. (Wow! He must not have been feeling too bad!)

Once King Al recovered from whatever disease was afflicting him, he decreed that no wine was to be served in any of the inns in the land of Castile... (what???!!!! no wine??? wait... keep reading...) UNLESS, the wine was served with something to eat. No wonder they called him King Al, the Wise.

Lots of people in his kingdom, apparently would drink their meals (and we're not talking milk!) instead of eating their meals. You can only imagine what the streets must have been like at night, back in the olden days of Spain before the recovered king had his say.

Beyond the royal disease of our friend, Wise King Al, in recorded tapas history, there's yet another theory that the first tapas small plates appeared because of the need to take small amounts of food during the work day of many farmers and workers.

This allowed them to continue working until it was time to eat the heavy midday meal. (Wow, yet, another demonstration of the voracious appetite of man... oh how we all love to nibble). Wine was the perfect drink to go along with the tapas small plates.

And if you didn't know this already, wine makes you feel mellow, increases strength, (or so the workers all told their wives!) And in the winter, a little wine warmed the body to help the workers combat those cold, cold days in the fields and workshops of the Middle Ages.

So, between covering the wine with smelly cheese and covering the wine from dirty, germ-carrying flies, small plates evolved from these covering practices. Small plates can only contain small portions, thus, a small bite before a meal not only enhanced the appetite, but had a usefulness beyond the obvious.

Today, a favorite way of eating is indeed smaller portions on small plates.

Wow! Now you know a little more than you did 5 minutes ago!

Cooking Is Our Passion, Serving You Is Our Pleasure!


With a desire of elevating our cuisine & atmosphere to represent the artistic flavors of various regions of México and introducing its Art and Craftsmanship, we created Favela’s Fusion Tequila Bar. As young kids, the center of our family evolved around the kitchen watching my Dad’s cooking. As we grew older, we started to appreciate his wonderful passion and art for cooking. By 1991 we were ready to share it with you and the first Favela’s Restaurant was born.What was once a dream, it is now a 20 year dream come true!

Thank you to all that have crossed our doors, we take pride in what we do since we consider Mexican food an art with all its color and flare. We will cross all boundaries to perfect it and not hold back to create it.

History of the Margarita


Like any drink that reaches such ubiquity, the history of the Margarita is shrouded in layers of myth and marketing. As such, the 'where' and 'who' are things we may never truly know. What we do know is that this refreshing summer favorite consists of tequila, lime, and an orange liqueur served in a salt-rimmed glass. Beyond that, we get into speculation and experimentation (the fun stuff).

The name 'margarita' is the Spanish form of the English name 'Margaret,' but is also the Spanish name given to the Daisy. Now it just so happens that, around the time that we see the margarita gaining popularity historically, there was another common drink in America called a daisy. The daisy similarly involved a citrus liqueur, a complementary citrus flavor, and rum. This being only a decade or so after the end of prohibition, however, there was a lingering popularity in the southern United States of imported liquor from south of the border - specifically, tequila.

A simple adaptation of an existing drink, however doesn't quite explain the rapid growth in popularity of the drink in the 1940s and 1950s that continues to this day nor the drastic reduction in complexity (a daisy is made with upwards of 7 ingredients.) So the title of godfather of the margarita was pretty much up for grabs for the latter half of the twentieth century. After much speculation and detailed research, the most widely accepted story is that of a bartender from Ensenada, Mexico by the name of Don Carlos Orozco.

Don Carlos was a bartender at Hussong's Cantina on the western coast of the Baja Peninsula. On a slow afternoon in October of 1941, he was experimenting with some new drink recipes when in walks Margarita Henkel - the daughter of the local German ambassador. Being a customer of some prestige, Don Carlos offers her his new experiment in welcome. She had no idea then, but she was taking the biggest step forward in the history of tequila since the conquistadores.

In the ensuing decades, there have been countless incarnations of the famous beverage have developed. Margarita flavors run the gamut from chipotle pineapple to blood orange and just about anything you can think of in between. In total, the margarita has become so popular that, in 2008, it was the number 1 most ordered drink in the US, accounting for 18% of bar drink orders.
