It is very different from its neighbors to the North and South as it has a direct channel to the Bay, which offers a cooling influence that none other can match. The area also attracts a new generation of vintners who see the opportunities for crafting great wines while setting down their own roots in a nurturing environment.
Petite Sirah was so named because it was thought to be related to Syrah, the great grape of the Northern Rhone.
