Sonoma and Napa share this cool, highly marine-influenced region. The morning fog and afternoon winds keeps Los Carneros cool in the summer and warm in the winter creating a refreshing paradox that gives grapes a little extra hang time.
- Climate: Bordering San Pablo Bay keeps temperatures consistently cool.
- Soils: Because much of Los Carneros was once under water, soils are mostly marine sedimentary.
- Varietals: The classic cool climate varietals – Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
