ATLAS PEAK APPELLATION
is located primarily within the Soda Canyon and Foss Valley areas, northeast of the town of Napa, east of Yountville, and above the foothills of the Stags Leap District.
Vineyards were first planted on Atlas Peak in 1870, and the terrain saw steady vineyard acreage growth between 1880 and 1901. Historically, the region grew many grape varieties, but today, Atlas Peak is known for its expressive mountain Cabernet Sauvignon and Bordeaux varietals. The first winery was established in the early 1980s, and the appellation was given official status in 1992.
Atlas Peak growers supply fruit to dozens of wineries in Napa and Sonoma counties, helping to create some of the finest wines in the world. In addition, local vintners and winemakers produce, bottle, and market their own brands.
