California’s wine-growing regions produce unique and diverse wines, with different flavors and characteristics derived from the soil, climate and the winemakers that create them. Ranging from abundant sunshine to cool coastal air, plus a variety of soils and terrain, each region lends its personal touch to the varietals grown there. A Chardonnay grown in the Central Valley can seem like an entirely different grape when compared to a Chardonnay produced from Monterey grapes. This diversity means that within the state, there is a wine for every palate.
