Yucaipa Valley Wine Alliance
A Non-Profit Organization
Where our mission is to promote the benefits of sustainable grape growing and winemaking practices by enlisting local industry commitment, providing guidance and assistance in developing a local wine industry, and educating the local community in the science and art of grape growing and winemaking.
Located in the foothills of the San Bernardino Mountains the Yucaipa Valley has historically been recognized as a sustainable agricultural area. Yucaipa is classified as having a warm-summer Mediterranean climate, which closely mirrors that of Italy. The East end and North bench have already proven to provide unique microclimates and are favorable grape growing regions.Consequently, the Yucaipa Valley Wine Alliance is dedicated to creating an American Viticulture Area (AVA) designation for the Yucaipa Valley, which would serve as a foundation necessary for wine industry infrastructure while identifying the Yucaipa valley as a charming, boutique, hand-crafted wine community destination.
