American Viticulture Area (AVA)
An AVA is described as a grape-growing region distinguished by geographical features, the boundaries of which have been recognized as providing unique growing characteristics not found in a neighboring area. The greater Napa Valley consists of 15 sub-AVA’s, providing growers with access to a broad spectrum of varietals and the nuances that each area offers based on where they emanate from in the Valley.
B Cellars winery is located in the Calistoga AVA. By comparison from the southern end of the Valley, which is at 12 feet above sea, Calistoga only rises a mere 365 feet higher. The climate in Calistoga is the warmest in the Valley and therefore is most conducive to growing Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Syrah, Petite Sirah and Petite Verdot.
