About Other California
California has nearly 100 American Viticulture Areas (AVAs) and accounts for almost 90% of wine production in the United States. In our section of Other California, we include wines from smaller AVAs as well as wines from the California AVA. Here are a few smaller AVAs you may see on the label:
Livermore Valley AVA, located right outside of San Francisco and home to wineries such as Wente.
Lodi County AVA, an AVA further east of San Francisco and known for its excellent, old-vine Zinfandels.
San Francisco Bay AVA, a sprawling AVA that covers Contra Costa, Santa Clara and Santa Cruz counties, to name a few.
Wine that holds only the California AVA is typically a wine that includes grapes from a number of different AVAs, which leads to the general labeling of the wine as California. This does not denote the quality of the wine, only the diversity of where the grapes originate.
It's not rare to see a wine's country of origin listed as "California." A country into itself in the wine world, California makes enough varieties and styles to match many European wine countries. It produces a diverse range of wines that span the quality spectrum.
The most famous of the California wine regions is Napa Valley, and these wines are certainly outstanding – but it's not as broad and diverse as its larger neighbor, Sonoma County. Down south, Santa Barbara's Santa Maria Valley is well-known for its Rhône blends, as well as cool-climate varieties like Pinot and Chardonnay. The Central Coast, the largest California AVA, has many different microclimates that lead to a wide range of wines with many sub-AVAs.

Did not like the taste of this Moscato.
I love this wine! It is a very nice light, slightly sweet wine to relax with at the end of the day. There is no bite; just a smooth taste.
I personally LOVE this wine. I prefer sweet wines and this one is not only pleasant to sip, it is a GREAT price!
Nice and sweet. Good for summer evenings on the patio.
This Pink Moscato was light, sweet and had fruity notes that were enjoyable but not truly satisfying. A simple wine for enjoying with friends, but the complexity was missing and should not be expected from a wine like this one.
- Light & Fruity
I especially enjoy the Sutter wines they are both very light and affordable wines for my budget.
Absolutly love love love it! Not too sweet, just the perfect wine for a lovely spring day!
First, I will admit I am sweet tooth! This wine is SA-WEEEET but also refreshing and crisp and a great addition to a summer day. I do enjoy the big, bold reds mostly, but this is a great alternative and a nice sweet treat!
I know your saying it's only $5.99! But if you are looking for a refreshing, not too sweet SPRING or SUMMER fix...this is it! : ) For me it's an everyday wine! Citrus, Sweet, Light, Fuity - PERFECT!
- Pair With
- Pasta > Meat
This is a great wine to drink on a nice spring day , With maybe some Pasta or Chinese food. Great Choice as a desert wine as well.
Pleasantly surprised! I used to drink white zin - back in the day! - and this reminds me of that time - light, easy to drink, lovely color, light alcohol. At this price, buy a case. It's a nice Spring picnic basket wine.
My favorite!!! like drinking kool aid.. lol!
Not as good as other moscato brands
Bought this out of curiosity on sale. Overpoweringly sweet with an off-putting artificial scent, tasted a lot like cheap box wine. Admittedly, to be expected at this price point.
Lovely color, sweet and a steal for this price point!
Alcohol By Volume Guide
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
