Eagle Peak, Mendocino County AVA

Named after a prominent nearby summit, the Eagle Peak, Mendocino County, AVA consists of steep rugged terrain, high elevations, moderate temperatures, cooling winds, and well-drained mountain soils. It is ideally situated in a climatic transition zone between the cool, wet climate of the Pacific coast and the warm, dry inland valleys of Mendocino County.

The new AVA is situated 125 miles north of San Francisco and encompasses nearly 21,000 acres of mountainous terrain. Only 115 acres are currently under vine between Golden, Masút, Linholme, Sea Biscuit South, and Turan Vineyards.
