The Knights Valley separates the northern tip of the Napa Valley from the Southern end  of Sonoma’s Alexander Valley. It is the warmest  and most rural AVA in Sonoma County. Beringer Vineyards established the region in the late 1960’s and remains the most prominent name in the area alongside the Peter Michael Winery.  

Knights Valley lies in the north eastern corner of Sonoma County.

The Knights Valley sits at the foot of  Mount St. Helena and lays in the original path of the Russian River.  The soils here are a unique combination of being both volcanic from the lava flows off St Helena and  granitic alluvial from the old river bed. The land appears rocky and cobbled on the surface, but the soils run deep and very well draining.
