Location of the AVA

The Petaluma Gap AVA spans an area of more than 200,000 acres stretching from the Pacific coast at Bodega Bay and running southeast to Highway 37 at Sears Point on San Pablo Bay; it straddles northern Marin and southern Sonoma counties.

Our vineyards are often nestled in with cattle, sheep, chickens and fruit trees. Crest a hill, round a curve, look into the little nooks and crannies that make up the landscape and you’ll notice pockets of green, with rows upon rows of grapevines. The vines bring brilliant patches of color to the golden grasses that grow in neighboring pastures. As stewards of the land, our farmers are dedicated to farming sustainably.
