Edna Valley
The Edna Valley AVA is an American Viticultural Area located in San Luis Obispo County, California south of the city San Luis Obispo and north of the town of Arroyo Grande. It is part of the larger Central Coast AVA. The valley is shadowed by volcanic mountains and characterized by black humus and clay-rich soils. Edna Valley has one of California’s longest growing seasons. The valley is kept cool by breezes from the Pacific Ocean and morning fog. Grapes were originally planted here by Spanish missionaries in the early 19th century. The region saw a revival when new vineyards were planted in the early 1970s. Edna Valley is best known for its Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and to a lesser extent Syrah.
