The first vineyard and winery in California were created by the Franciscan missionary Father Junipero Serra in 1769. At that time California had two native varieties, but used the mission grape, Vitis vinifera variety, low quality they called Creole in South America. The further development of viticulture in California occurred after 1920, when it ended the ban on manufacture, sale and transportation of alcohol. The key to progress is based on research and testing of winemaking techniques, which has developed over the years with the collaboration of the University of California. Currently has about 350,000 hectares of vineyards, representing 90% of the American and 45% of U.S. wineries. With a mild climate, well suited vineyards main grape varieties grown are:   red varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Grenache, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Carignan, Barbera, Gamay, etc..  of white varieties: Chardonnay, Colombard, Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Muscat Blanc, Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Sémillon. California produces a wide range of wines, reflecting the diversity of locations of vineyards, divided into three climatic zones: the Pacific (west), Central Valley, an area of very hot weather and the Sierra Nevada (east) and wine production is centered in the counties of Napa and Sonoma, northeast of San Francisco Bay.    Napa Valley with over 150 years of winemaking tradition, is the most well-known of California. It covers 40 miles, bounded on the west by the Mayacamas Mountains and east by the Sierra de Vacas, in a mild and sunny. In over 45,000 ha of vineyards the grape varieties grown are: Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Zinfandel the native used for red wines and blushes (pink), and to a lesser extent find Pinot Noir and Merlot for reds, Sauvignon blanc for dry whites and Chenin blanc for dry white wines and liqueur wines.    Sonoma is the largest area and geographical diversity, 35 miles long and 35 miles wide with huge fields and hills.
