While Orange County itself is not known for its vineyards, our beautiful state of California is legendary for some of the best wine in the world. Sonoma County has more soil types than all of France; ranging from rich and loamy to volcanic rock. This region boasts of the Mayacamas Mountains, the rolling hills of the Carneros, the Russian River Valley, coastal hills, and other bountiful geographical domains. It’s best producing grapes are Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Rose, Sauvignon Blanc, Sparkling Varieties, Syrah, and Zinfandel.
Napa Valley is home to several alluvial fans, which are layers of gravel, sand and silt that have descended from the western Mayacamas Mountains over thousands of years. These soils are deep and well-draining, which is which why Sonoma produces some of the richest, and tastiest Cabernet Sauvignons in the world.
Paso Robles is known for being a world-class wine region, with unique wine tasting experiences and a laid-back atmosphere. It has more than 200-tasting rooms and 40,000-acres of grapes. This region produces more than 40-wine grape varieties. Paso Robles Wine Country is truly distinct.
Of course, we can’t forget our neighbor to the east: The Temecula Valley. Temecula is particularly well-suited for Italian, Spanish, and French grapes such as Sangiovese, Syrah, Montepulciano, Viognier, Zinfandel and Tempranillo. Other fine grapes grown in the Temecula Valley are Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc, Malbec, Riesling, & Chardonnay.
