About Mendocino County

Mendocino County is an appellation that represents the northern limits of California’s quality wine-growing regions. It is one of California’s largest wine-growing areas, although far from the most densely planted it is recognized for the diversity and quality of its wines. There is a clear vineyard bias towards its southern half, where the majority of vines are located.

The county is home to more than ten AVAs (American Viticultural Areas) among them the famous Anderson Valley and the Mendocino AVA, which is something of a catch-all title as it incorporates more than five other location-specific AVAs. The climatic variation between the inland and coastal AVAs here is largely to thank for the broad range of wine styles produced in Mendocino County.

The region is divided into two distinct climatic zones by the Mendocino Range, one of several mountain ranges which make up the Pacific Coast Ranges. Unusually for California, the vineyards lean towards the inland areas rather than the coast – inland it is significantly warmer and drier and vines are sheltered from the cooling effects of the Pacific Ocean. This area is classified as Region III on the Amerine and Winkler climate classification scale, in contrast to the Region I classification of Anderson Valley.

Mendocino County’s cooler areas produce outstanding Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and sparkling wines. Alsatian white grape varieties – Riesling, Gewürztraminer, and Pinot Gris – have also found a home here, while the warmer parts of the region are suitable for growing more robust reds, including the likes of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Syrah, and Zinfandel.

Viticulture in Mendocino County dates back to the California Gold Rush of the mid-1800s, although there was a significant hiatus in wine production here during Prohibition in the early-1900s. Today, Mendocino County is particularly known for its organic and biodynamic wines. As is happening all over the world, new wine-growing terroirs are being discovered in this area each year, pushing California’s viticultural regions further north.
