The Clarksburg AVA (American Viticultural Area) is home to some of the highest quality vineyards in California, and shares the same morning fog and cool evening breezes from the San Francisco Bay that shape the growing seasons in the vineyards of Napa and Sonoma a few miles to the east. The wineries at the Old Sugar Mill, in Clarksburg, California, are a bridge to the rich agricultural heritage of the region, whose vineyards are staking their claim alongside the great wine growing regions of the world.
