Sonoma Coast

Appellation

Established 1987 | Cool Climate Pinot Noir & Chardonnay

The Sonoma Coast AVA extends from the San Pablo Bay to the south all the way up to the Mendocino County border. Compared to the larger Sonoma County region, the Sonoma Coast is characterized by cool climate and significantly higher rainfall – almost twice the annual rainfall of its inland neighbors. Many vineyards are above the fog line, where sun exposure is sufficient to fully ripen the fruit. Sonoma Coast is best known for its excellent cool-climate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
