90+ Point Club

Wines made from grapes grown in the Petaluma Gap are garnering great reviews. Beginning in January 2018 and following the approval of the AVA, our winemakers were finally able to designate their wines with the Petaluma Gap appellation on front labels; wines bottled previously were labeled as “Sonoma Coast,” the larger and less specific growing area. The list below includes a selection of 90+ Point wines, along with links for purchase on our members’ websites. Since these are mostly made in small quantities, availability is not guaranteed, however, some retailers also stock these wines or can place a special order by request.
