The Central Coast district of California represents a cool growing region with a variety of soil types. Moderated by the Pacific Ocean, the Central Coast Area yields wines with an intensity of flavor and crispness. Although the region is large geographically and, therefore, exhibits a variety of microclimates, all of the growing areas within the appellation have relatively cool night-time temperatures that help keep grape acids intact.
