The Sonoma County AVA is located in the California North Coast American Viticultural Area (AVA) Sonoma is Mendocino's southern neighbor and Napa Valley's western neighbor. Like Mendocino, Sonoma's western border is formed by rugged, Pacific Ocean wave pounded bluffs. The Mayacamas Mountain Ranges form Sonoma's eastern border. Coastal regions are cooled by the cold waters and breezes from the Pacific Ocean. Inland, the days are warm but the nights are cooled as breezes and fog from the ocean filter through the Petaluma Gap and Russian River. Route 12 runs the length of the Valley from Santa Rosa to Glen Ellen. Sonoma County was part of an inland sea but plate tectonics pushed up the coastal ranges. Volcanic activity laid down ash and lava amongst the ocean sediment creating a mosaic of soil types in the region. There are 260 wineries in the County. In the pages under development, we hope to provide information to help you to narrow your focus in this large area. The Sonoma AVAs below are listed in rough order from north to south.
