Coombsville Wine Country
The small Coombsville wineries are very different from the heavily capitalized ventures up-valley. Most Coombsville Wineries are family-owned and operated, and many of the vineyards have been owned by the same local residents for many years. This is in stark contrast to the deep pockets from out of town that own much of the rest of the valley.
Coombsville’s climate is a cross between the nearby wine regions. Like its southern neighbor, much of Coombsville is exposed to wind and fog from the San Pablo Bay. But parts of the region, especially the eastern hills, have a warmer temperatures. These conditions have a tremendous impact on Coombsville Wineries and Vineyards.
The terrain of Coombsville Wine Country is composed of volcanic debris and lava flows from the ancient eruption of Mount George. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Zinfandel thrive in Coombsville’s soil. The region is quite beautiful, and it is a very enjoyable place for wine tours and tastings.
The history of wine production in Coombsville Wine Country is closely linked to the nearby town of Napa. Whereas many northern AVAs are within St Helena’s sphere of influence, this is not the case for Coombsville Wineries.
