Mendocino, North Coast
Mendocino County AVA is one of the northern-most wine regions in California with two very different climate zones separated by the Mendocino Range. Mendocino County has 10 diverse appellations within it and almost a quarter of the regions wine grapes are organically grown. In the cooler part of the region you will find the prominent appellations of Mendocino, Mendocino Ridge, Anderson Valley and Yorkville Highlands.
In the warmer part of the region you will find Redwood Valley, Potter Valley, Cole Ranch, McDowell Valley, Covelo, and Dos Rios. Each of the regions has become known for certain wine varietals. The Anderson Valley for instance, with its proximity to the cool Pacific fog, produces excellent Gewurztraminer and Riesling sparking wines. In the warmer regions like Potter Valley and McDowell Valley, wines such as Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Grenache and Syrah have become popular, all of which can be found here at Gold Medal Wine Club.
While the Mendocino County area has been growing grapes as far back as the gold rush days the region has never enjoyed more success than it has today. There are over 550 vineyards and over 50 wineries in the region.
