ABOUT NORTH COAST CALIFORNIA
Mendocino County’s authentic “green” credentials are unsurpassed by any other wine region in the world. The majority of the region's 570 vineyards remain in the hands of family farmers, many of whom have lived for two or more generations on their land—some tracing their roots to the first settlers in the 1850s. Mendocino County is home to 570 vineyards with a typical (median) size of just 14 acres. Composed of several distinct winegrowing regions, red grapes represent a majority of the Mendocino grape acreage. Pinot Noir (2672 acres), Cabernet (2613), Zinfandel (1945), Merlot (1546) and Syrah (697) are the most commonly planted red varietals.
White grape plantings total 6348 acres. Chardonnay is the most common (4840 acres) followed by Sauvignon Blanc (722 acres).
