Lake Sonoma sits as a backdrop of blue against the vineyards of the Rockpile AVA in Sonoma County. Known for its robust and fruit-forward Zinfandels, Rockpile may be California’s most sparsely planted AVA, covering 15,000 acres of which only 160 are planted. The AVA features shallow iron-oxide soils, and elevations that push above the fog layer, making for very warm growing conditions.
