The micro-climate of North Coast AVA.
- The main influence of climate for California's north coast vineyards wines is the pacific ocean. The rocky mountain range runs parallel to the coast and protects from the cold inland climate. One of the main influences of the ocean is the onset of fog at night time and its dispersion by the afternoon. Followed by the warm California sun giving enough sunlight to ripen the grapes. The altitude of north coast California presents a cooling effect on the grapes of the north coast of California. The presence of large mountains and valleys allows for beneficial exposure to sunlight.
