Monterey County AVA

A 90-mile-long valley starting at the mouth of Monterey Bay’s “Blue Grand Canyon,” defined by persistent ocean wind & fog.

In the heart of California’s Central Coast, Monterey County AVA lies just inland from the deep “Blue Grand Canyon” – the largest submarine canyon along all of North America’s shoreline. Each day, chilly Pacific wind and fog sweeps into the valley, funneled between the Santa Lucia and Gabilan mountain ranges. These strong ocean winds combine with abundant sunshine and scarce rainfall, lowering yields and increasing hang time to produce small, vibrant berries with vivid natural acidity.
