The Covelo AVA is located in northern Mendocino County, California. The region is unique in that it only has 2 acres planted with vines. Despite its modest production, it was granted AVA status on February 16, 2006, based purely on the unique climate conditions of the area. Located 45 miles north of Ukiah, California the area is relatively flat and built upon deep layers of sandy clay soil. What makes Covelo special is it has high mountain peaks surrounding the valley shielding it from the maritime effects of the Pacific Ocean. The growing season here is one of the shortest in Mendocino County, and the area has one of the largest diurnal temperature variations in Mendocino. The Covelo region currently has no wines commercially available.
