I was up in my hometown of Sonoma, Ca this past weekend. I photographed a few growers at their home and vineyard, in the Carneros AVA. I feel like my girlfriend right now because she has her own paid wine blog, and here I am writing about wine. To learn more about the Carneros region please read below (it is from wikipedia):
"...The proximity to the cool fog and breezes from the bay makes the climate in Los Carneros cooler and more moderate than the wine regions further north in Napa Valley and Sonoma Valley. The cooler climate has made Los Carneros attractive for the cultivation of cooler climate varietals like Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Many of the grapes grown in Los Carneros are used for sparkling wine production. ..."
