The Yucaipa Wine Growing Region
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 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.
