for this region?

Sonoma Mountain is a subregion of Sonoma Valley in California. The region has different microclimates, with cooler Pacific Ocean air circulating through the canyons and consistently warm areas that are more exposed. Most vineyards are planted high above sea level, out of the way of fog. Depending on location, grapes produced vary from cool-climate Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, to Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon to robust Cabernet and Zinfandel. 

The region gained AVA status in 1985, mainly due to the efforts of Laurel Glen Winery’s Patrick Campbell and vintner David Steiner. ~Amanda Schuster
