Sunset - Wine tasting in Humboldt County

It's amazing how many wine regions we have in the U.S., and one way to get an idea is to check out the list of them on the American Viticultural Area (AVA) list.  There were 198 AVA's as of April 2010.

Sunset magazine found an area in Humboldt County California that is partly in one AVA, but otherwise the wineries are on their own.

In their article Wine Tasting in Humboldt County, Sunset visits the smaller wineries that are as much labors of love as they are businesses.  As you'll find in any trip to small town America, they also find some great places to eat, making any future trip one to savor on many levels.  Read the article, explore the places on our map, and keep them in mind for a future trip up the California coast.
