The Anderson Valley is located in the rolling hills of the coastal region of Mendocino County, about two hours north of San Francisco. Only fifteen miles long, half the length of Napa Valley, this beautiful valley is home to a unique group of vineyards that produce a broad range of excellent wines, including Burgundian varietals like Pinot Noir. The climate is significantly influenced by its proximity to the Pacific Ocean and is one of the coolest AVAs in the state, as well as getting about 40 inches of rain each year, also more than most wine regions.
