Wine Regions

I chose the Sebastopol area because it is a more “laid-back” alternative to Napa. And while the area was home to apple orchards for many years (Hwy 116 is called the Gravenstein Highway for a reason), I was told that Washington State apple growers bought up the juicing facilities and made it difficult and expensive to haul apples to local juicers. So vineyards have steadily replaced apple orchards and the area is now known to be excellent for Pinot Noir and other rich red wines.

Here’s an interactive way to explore the wine country of Northern CA (and the world):
