Honoring our French heritage through Greg’s grandmother’s name, Suzor was born from a desire to create wines that resonate with vivacity and authenticity of the vineyards we source from. Fond memories of family meals in France’s Loire Valley have influenced our choice to make simply elegant, food friendly wines.
Today, Suzor Wines has grown into a family affair. Greg focuses on crafting distinctive yet accessible wines and Mélissa works on growing our brand while baby boy Hugo keeps everyone tiredly on their toes! Many exciting possibilities are on the horizon, but we remain focused on making wines that convey our story, with a nod to French tradition.

In the late 1800s, towns and cities in the United States faced a common problem: the inconvenience of unpaved streets and the pervasive mud and odor that went with them. In 1900, everything changed: the buffalo block, a cheap, water-resistant, and nearly-indestructible brick, was developed. Soon, settlements across the country were paved with them, and Montana Avenue and the town of Billings were no exception.
Although buffalo block remnants are fewer and further between now that we’ve long since adopted asphalt paving methods, we unearthed plenty of buffalo blocks on the old patio and scattered throughout the building when we began our remodel of the Rex in 2018. And one day, while doing a walkthrough of the renovation, our granddaughter saw a brick and said, “Well, that would be a cool name for a restaurant!”
“Hmm,” we thought. “She has a point.”
Not just because of those old paving bricks, but also because “Buffalo Block” seemed to capture decades of history, harkening back to the days of Buffalo Bill and when the hotel bar went by the name of “Buffalo Bar.”
To make a long story short, the name sort of just stuck.
So cheers to a new legacy — while honoring our rich history.
