The Sierra Pelona Valley received its designation as an AVA in 2010. Situated across a ten-mile stretch, the Sierra Pelona Valley is part of the high desert region in Northern Los Angeles County. The Valley ranges from 2,400 to 3,400 feet above sea level, and the soils are comprised mostly of alluvial clay. The region's desert climate features a large diurnal swing in temperature, sometimes up to 50 degrees. This diurnal swing extends the growing season but also makes the grapes vulnerable to damage from a late spring frost. The region is known for its Zinfandel production.
