Congratulations to the Petaluma Gap Winegrowers Alliance for FINALLY receiving the much desired, and deserved, AVA designation (American Viticultural Area). The coastal wind and fog in the region truly produce grapes of distinction. Prior to their annual Wind to Wine tasting event last year, I interviewed Doug Cover of the PGWA Board of Directors about their pursuit of the AVA distinction. If you’d like to learn about the process and what it means for the growers and the winemakers who source grapes from the region click the link below. This is my raw interview and is less than 8 minutes. For distinctive cool climate wines look for Petaluma Gap on wine labels from this point forward!
