Get Reaquainted with Carneros

Windswept, cool, with gently rolling hills, the Los Carneros American Viticultural Area (AVA) is a distinctive region with a long winemaking history dating back to the early 1800s.

"When we founded the Carneros Wine Alliance 30 years ago we saw the potential for the Carneros AVA to be considered the leading appellation for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Now, Carneros is known around the world as a producer of world-class wines and a wine capital in its own right."

Carneros Wine Alliance
The Carneros Wine Alliance is a non-profit association of wineries and grape-growers in the Carneros American Viticultural Area (AVA).  Carneros is the only appellation located at the crossroads of two major wine regions, the Napa and Sonoma Valleys.  Influenced by the maritime breezes and fog from its southern border with the San Pablo Bay, Carneros produces the region’s finest Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and sparkling wines. The Carneros Wine Alliance is committed to promoting the distinction, diversity and above all, quality, of the grapes and wines from Carneros.
