The Wine Country is a region of Northern California in the United States known worldwide as a premium wine-growing region. Viticulture and wine-making have been practiced in the region since the mid-19th century. There are over 400 wineries in the area north of San Francisco, mostly located in the area’s valleys, including Napa Valley in Napa County, and the Sonoma Valley, Alexander Valley, Dry Creek Valley, Bennett Valley and Russian River Valley in Sonoma County. The Wine Country also includes appellations at higher elevations, such as Atlas Peak and Mount Veeder. The region is defined not only in terms of viticulture, but also its ecology, geology, architecture, cuisine, and culture. The largest amount of the grape harvest, in terms of both acreage and value, derives from Sonoma County.
Some of the region’s major communities associated with the Wine Country include Kenwood, Healdsburg, Sonoma, Santa Rosa, Napa, Yountville, St. Helena, Calistoga, Geyserville, Petaluma, Sebastopol, Guerneville, historic Fort Ross and Ukiah.
Wine Country proper is generally regarded as the combined counties of Napa, Sonoma and Mendocino; some reference works include part of Lake in the term Wine Country.
