Carneros is an American Viticultural Area (AVA) where San Francisco Bay meets the Napa Valley. Located 40 miles north of San Francisco, its proximity to San Pablo Bay makes Carneros the coolest region in Napa. The combination of coastal fog and warm summer days creates ideal growing conditions for both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes, producing delicate and complex wines with distinct flavor profiles. Overlooking San Pablo Bay and both the Napa and Sonoma Valleys, Carneros is a picturesque wine region perfect for an afternoon escape.
