Clear Lake

Clear Lake, the largest natural freshwater lake in California, is the focal point of the Lake County wine region. Several mountain ranges removed from the coast, Lake County is warmer and dryer than the neighboring counties of Sonoma or Napa, providing textbook conditions for sauvignon blanc, cabernet sauvignon, malbec and zinfandel. Vineyards are planted throughout the county — from a fertile valley near 1,400 feet of elevation, to the rocky red volcanic soils around Mt. Konocti and Cobb Mountain.
