Clarksburg received its designation as an AVA in 1984. Sitting on 64,640 acres, Clarksburg is located across Sacramento, Solano, and Yolo Counties. The soils of Clarksburg are dense clay and loam. With influences from both the San Francisco Bay to the west, and the Sacramento River, the climate of Clarksburg is cooler and more moderate than most of Sacramento. The region features heavy sun exposure with cooling effects from the river allowing for a longer growing season than most central valley AVAs. The longer growing season allows the fruit to develop a well-balanced acidity and tannin structure. The region is known for Petite Sirah and Chenin Blanc.
