Too often lost in the shadow of its giant neighbors, the San Fransisco Bay Area is certainly a wine region to explore. It sits at the gateway to wine country, with Marin County to the north, Livermore Valley to the east, Ben Lomond wine country to the west, and San Mateo County to the south. It is blessed with a diversified climate and terrain that produces some remarkable wines. Vineyard acreage is concentrated in Livermore Valley, where about 3,000 acres are currently planted to grapes.

The wineries of this quality-driven region craft exceptional estate wines from the well-drained soils and a range of coastal and inland climates. The San Francisco Bay Area encompasses four smaller AVAs: Livermore Valley AVA, Pacheco Pass AVA, San Ysidro District AVA, and Santa Clara Valley AVA. Ideally located, San Francisco is positioned as a true gateway to wine country.
