American Viticultural Area (AVA) stretches about 13 miles from north to south in the Mayacamas Range on the western edge of the Napa Valley. That means it traverses almost one-third of the length of the valley. That also means that there are diverse differences in the wines that are being produced up there at elevations that range from 450 to 2,500 feet.
