Tastings and Tours by Region
There are over 107 registered viticultural areas in California; this is due in large part to the nature of the unique and varied microclimates that California possesses. This in turn, is also one of the most significant reasons why the state of California is able to grow a variety of grapes and blends and produce the extremely diverse and wide-ranging array of wines that it does. Examples of some of the most famous Californian viticultural areas include the Napa Valley and the Sonoma Valley. While there are 107 registered Californian viticultural areas, the wine regions of California are most commonly divided into 4 main regions. These include the North Coast, Central Coast, South Coast, and most notably; the Central Valley, which is California’s largest wine-producing region. These areas continue to be hotspots not only for their wine production, but for an increasing amount of wine and vineyard-related tourism manifesting in comprehensive vineyard tours, wine tasting deals, luxury accommodation, and wine-making workshops.
