Los Carneros Growing Region in Napa Valley

The rolling hills of the Carneros American Viticultural Area straddle both sides of the southern Napa and Sonoma counties.  These Syrah grapes are situated on the Napa County side, a few miles west of the city of Napa on Old Sonoma Road. Carneros is a varied appellation with many distinct microclimates, and this site is particularly unique. The vines are perched on a rocky west facing hill with optimal sun exposure throughout the growing season. This vineyard is also in the northern reaches of Carneros and benefits from a warmer growing season than the southern parts of the appellation closer to San Pablo Bay.
