About Wine From California

California accounts for almost 90% of the United States' wine making. California would be the world's fourth largest wine producer if it were its own country.

18th century dates when Spanish missionaries planted the first vineyards to produce wine for Mass in California. Now over 1,200 wineries exist in the California, with a wide range of boutique wineries to large companies that distribute globally.

Climate
Soils
Although the wine regions of California are typically labeled as a Mediterranean climate, there are other regions with a drier climate. The cool temperatures of California are factored largely by how close the region is to the ocean and bays along with unobstructed paths for cooler wind. Regions with mountains as barriers, including of Sonoma and Napa, are warmer since there's less of a cooling process available.

California’s soils vary widely due to the North American and Pacific Plates plate tectonics. In some regions, soils are so diverse that growers will create sections of the same grape variety, planted in different soils to differentiate blending components. This is a large reason why California has so many AVA varieties.
