Showcasing the Finest Wines from Unique AVA's

AVA (American Viticultural Area) Vintners

American Viticultural Area

An American Viticultural Area (AVA) is a designated wine grape-growing region in the United States, providing an official Appellation for the mutual benefit of wineries and consumers. Winemakers often want their consumers to know about the geographic pedigree of their wines, as wines from particular areas possess distinctive characteristics. Consumers often seek out wines from specific AVAs, and certain wines of particular pedigrees can claim premium prices and loyal customers.

In the Napa Valley there are 16 unique Viticultural Areas.With their own climate and microclimates, soil structures, and other distinctions each area offers their own special flavors and quality.
