One of the premier wine growing regions in the United States, the Carneros AVA straddles two of the most famous places in California: Napa & Sonoma. It's the first wine region to be defined by climate, as the cool, windy breezes come in from the San Pablo Bay and settle on the southernmost foothills of the Mayacamas and Sonoma mountain ranges.
