The 12 Wine Districts of Livermore

The 12 Wine Districts of Livermore

California is home to a wonderful variety of wines, nearly one for every taste. Soil and weather play a major role in the characteristics of the grapes, and the resulting wine. The Wine Institute has divided California into 107 American Viticultural Areas, or AVAs. The Livermore Valley is one these 107 AVAs, and now has been further sub-divided into a dozen districts that capture the unique elements of each area. Let’s explore them!
