Napa Valley is the most renowned wine-growing region in the United States and the world. The Napa Valley appellation is unique because of the diversity of soils found in such a small geographic area. The area’s topography supports a wide variety of soils-over 30 different types have already been identified, ranging from well-drained gravelly loams to moisture retaining silty clays. These soils vary in depth and fertility. The structure and composition of the soil greatly affects the vegetation, including the grapes. Napa’s Wine reputation sparked meteoric popularity with the Bay Area’s elite. It has become recognized worldwide as host to international legions of wine aficionados throughout the year. In 2019 the gross production value of Napa Valley agricultural products was reported at $937,961,800. Atlas Peak is the most prominent feature of the area. 3265 Soda Canyon is located in East central Napa County, within the Atlas Peak AVA. The AVA straws its name from the highest peak in the appellation but is perhaps more defined by the shallow Foss Valley where most of the vineyards lie. The unique land formation that is the Foss Valley, allows for the infiltration of cooling breezes from the San Francisco Bay that moderate the daytime high temperatures experienced during the growing season, and also sits above the coastal fog that regularly blankets the Napa Valley, so, despite the cooler temperatures, it enjoys more sunlight. Environmental restrictions and controls on new hillside development significantly constrain new vineyards on the surrounding hills. The planed Napa vineyards acres were reported at 34,598 in 1995, and have grown to only 43,430 in 2018. So the vineyard values have been proven to be consistently stable in this market. There has been steady demand for Napa properties, as the valley has grown its global reputation as home of the best wines of the New World.
