Sonoma Mountain AVA in Sonoma County is uniquely influenced by its elevation, exposure, and geographical features. The mountain, characterized by a series of hills and live oak groves, experiences cool winds and fog from the Petaluma Gap on its western side, making it ideal for premium Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Syrah. The coexistence of Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir on the mountain highlights the intricate topography and varied sun and wind exposure. Other grapes such as Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfandel, Syrah, Grenache, and Grüner Veltliner also thrive here. The AVA, situated within the northwest of Sonoma Valley appellation, ranges from 400 to 1,200 feet in elevation, primarily on the north and eastern slopes. It overlaps with the Bennett Valley AVA, benefiting from the Petaluma Gap's cooling effects, and features isolated vineyards amidst woods and grazing land.
