Petaluma Gap Wine Region Gets Help from the Wind

The Petaluma Gap wine region is an inland valley with salty maritime wind and brisk fog.  The weather in this newly recognized wine-growing region fosters a long growing season favorable to cool climate varietals such as pinot noir, syrah and chardonnay.

There are more than 80 vineyards and nine wineries in the Petaluma Gap and more than 50 wineries outside of the designated region that produce wine from Petaluma Gap fruit, according to Petaluma Gap Winegrowers Alliance.

By having the Petaluma Gap define a subsection of the Sonoma Coast it further defines the qualities of a region that is driven by the forces of nature, in this case, the wind,” says Evan Pontoriero, President and Winemaker of Fogline Vineyards. “The wind is our story, and story is an integral part of the wine experience.”
