Wine region

Sonoma County, United States

Sonoma County is located north of San Francisco and is the biggest wine producing region in California. Sonoma County is home to several American Viticultural Areas (AVAs) and to over 250 wineries. In fact, to better understand this region, it is paramount to have a look into the AVA multifaceted mosaic that defines it.

Alexander Valley AVA: Located in the heart of Geyserville, northeastern Sonoma County, south of the Mayacama Mountains. The Alexander Valley AVA is known for its big Cabernet Sauvignon.

Bennett Valley AVA: Cool-climate AVA encased by Bennet Mountain (north), Taylor Peak (west), and Sonoma Mountain (south). Syrah is the most noteworthy grape varietals grown in the region.

Carneros AVA: Top AVA for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Carneros is located north of San Pablo Bay and it's characterized by a cool climate, which was the main criterion used to define the AVA.

Chalk Hill: located in the northeastern corner of the Russian River Valley AVA, Chalk Hill is its own AVA. Its chalky, volcanic soils and warmer climate are a good fit for Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Moon Mountain AVA: One of the newest AVAs in Sonoma County is located east of Glen Ellen. Currently, there are only 5 wineries, producing mostly Cabernet Sauvignon.

Dry Creek Valley: Small enclosed AVA with less than 10,000 acres of vineyards it's bordered by Lake Sonoma (north), Dry Creek and Russian River (south). Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc are its best wines.

Fort Ross-Seaview AVA: Located near the Pacific Ocean in the western portion of Sonoma County it's famous for high-elevation Pinot Noirs of great finesse.

Fountaingrove District AVA: Covering the eastern part of Sonoma County, this tiny AVA is home to only 5 wineries focusing mainly on Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah.

Green Valley AVA: located in the southwestern portion of the Russian River Valley, it's the coolest and foggiest AVA in the area. Green Valley AVA's climate and Goldridge soil are perfect for Pinot Noir.

Knights Valley AVA: Abut Mount St. Helena, this remote AVA is characterized by high-altitude vineyards planted mostly with Cabernet Sauvignon.

Russian River Valley AVA: Located less than 20 miles from the Pacific Ocean, Russian River Valley enjoys a cool climate with steep variations between day and night. This is the land of excellent Pinot Noir.

Petaluma Gap AVA: This is the newest AVA in Sonoma County (2017), the gateway to the Sonoma County wine region. Here we can find Pinot Noir, Syrah, and Chardonnay vineyards.

Rockpile AVA: Bordering with Dry Creek Valley (north), Rockpile is a rugged land of steep hillsides and cool breezes home to some of the best Zinfandel in California.

Pine Mountain-Cloverdale Peak AVA: High-elevation vineyards (1,600-3,000 ft.) mostly of Cabernet Sauvignon grown on volcanic soils. Substantial temperature drops between day and night.

Sonoma Valley AVA: Covering the southern part of Sonoma County, this appellation is protected from the Pacific's influence by the Mayacama (east) and Sonoma Mountains (west). Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay are the main varietals.

Sonoma Coast AVA: Rainy AVA located close to the Pacific Ocean and bordering with Mendocino County (north). Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are the key grape varietals of Sonoma Coast AVA.

Northern Sonoma AVA: Large AVA encompassing the territories of Russian River Valley, Dry Creek Valley, Alexander Valley, Knights Valley, and Chalk Hill. The most common varietal is Cabernet Sauvignon.

Sonoma Mountain AVA: Hilly AVA within the territory of Sonoma Valley AVA characterized by altitude and well-drained soils. Here Cabernet Sauvignon is king.
