California Regions

Suisun Valley-American Viticultural Area (AVA)
 

The Suisun Valley lies within the southern end of two ranges of the Coast Range, the Vaca Mountains to the east and the Mt. George Range to the west. Suisun Valley terminates in the south at the marshlands of Suisun Bay. To the north Suisun Valley rolls up into Wooden Valley at the Napa County line. For more information on the Suisun Valley AVA you can visit the Suisun Valley Grape Growers Association web site. Click here…

Mendocino County
 

 Located directly north of Sonoma County and about 90 miles north of San Francisco, the Mendocino wine region is bounded by California’s Coastal Mountain Range, the Pacific Ocean and the great northern redwood forests. Mendocino County is highly diverse with coastal influences, mountaintops, river valleys, and inland regions that have either Mediterranean like climates or like Northern Europe. Two websites where you can learn more about Mendocino County are Gomendo and Cal Wineries.

 

Sierra Foothills-Amador County
 

The Sierra Foothill wine region of the central California valley is generally east of San Francisco and includes the El Dorado and Amador County wine growing regions. More than 100 wineries are located in this area with vineyards generally located between 1,500 to 3,000 feet where elevation creates a four-season climate. The shallow, mountainside soils create moderate stress on the vines, producing low to moderate yields and high quality. The region has rolling, sun-drenched hillsides, warm climate, and volcanic, decomposed granite soils, which are ideal conditions for producing quality wine grapes.

Paso Robles
 

The Paso Robles AVA has over 20,000 acres under vine and is emerging as a leader in Californian viticulture with over 100 wineries.  Paso Robles has a greater day-to-night temperature swing than any other AVA in California. This optimal climate along with exceptional soil produces a range of exceptional varietals including Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Merlot, Viognier, Primitivo, and Petite Verdot.  For more information on the Paso Robles AVA you can visit the Paso Robles Wine Country Alliance website. Click here…

 

Napa County
 

The Napa Valley AVA is considered one of the top wine regions in California with over 300 wineries.  The valley is flanked by the Mayacamas Mountain range on the western and northern sides and the Vaca Mountain range to the east.  Volcanic soil and a Mediterranean climate are conducive to growing quality wine grapes. In 1976, the region got a boost from the Paris Wine Tasting Of 1976, which featured a Napa Valley Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, which bested French labels in a blind tasting format. The results of this tasting cemented the region’s reputation of its ability to produce world-class wines. For more information about Napa Valley you can visit the Napa Valley Vintners website. Click here…

 

Russian River Valley
 

The Russian River Valley AVA is one of the most recognized in America and is internationally renowned for it’s Pinot Noir, which excels in this cool climate area. The defining characteristic of the vineyards in the Russian River Valley AVA is the cooling fog that is drawn inland from the Pacific Ocean each day. For more information on the area you can visit the Russian River Valley Winegrowers website. Click here…
