Whether you’re learning about wine or a fan of California wines, this map is an essential reference. California wine regions have become vastly more complicated since Napa Valley was officially recognized as an AVA (American Viticultural Area) in 1981. There are now 108 AVAs as more winemakers define themselves by regional differences in addition to grape variety.
The government agency that defines US wine regions or AVAs, the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau, provides detailed written descriptions of them that follow landmarks on USGS survey maps. Plotting the AVAs is fairly straightforward but time-consuming.
All of the maps are made using the latest mapping technology, current wine laws and regulations of each region, as well as consultation with wine industry professionals.
