Bennett Valley—A Must-Visit Region of Sonoma County
Bennett Valley is one of the smallest AVA in Sonoma Valley. It’s located in the hills between Santa Rosa and Sonoma Town. It’s considered one of the most popular AVAs in the area because of its exquisites wines made from high-quality Syrah, Merlot, and Sauvignon.
The area consists of about 650 acres of vineyards and is surrounded by lush green hills that give the vineyards its cool mesoclimate—this is also what makes it different to other parts of Sonoma County.
Bennett Valley has cool, slightly-foggy evenings. The fog sticks around until the sun peers through in the mornings. Gaps in the surrounding mountains also allow coastal winds to flow through and help moderate the temperatures.
A distinct regional wine label
Bennett Valley is covered in well-drained volcanic soils that are perfect for growing fruit for wine. The soft soil reduces the pressure and ensures that vines can grow a deep root system. This unique hydration system helps make wines with complex flavors.
Other than its wines, Bennett Valley is also famous for its golf course. The Bennett Valley Golf Course (BVGC) is located at the bottom of Bennett Peak. The golf course is beautiful. Not only does it promise a pleasant climate throughout the year, but it also offers picturesque scenery. The Matanzas Creek runs through the tree-lined course.
The course has is a visual delight with its redwood, oak and pine trees. The massive 72,6,500-yard course is considered one of the most stunning places to play golf in the country. The BCGS also has a driving range and a space that golfers can practice in.
Visitors can choose to begin or end their day on the course at the Legends Sports Grill which is a full-service bar that offers a full-service bar and eateries that offer breakfast, lunch as well as dinner. You can indulge in delicious meals while watching the match on large televisions screens and soaking in the view overlooking gorgeous views of the course.
