The Fresno County AVA covers - as you might imagine - Fresno County, almost exactly in the middle of the state of California. Fresno is probably better known for its grapes that become raisins for eating, but this is also a thriving wine area. Most of the viticulture is located between the Kings and San Joaquin Rivers; this area is appropriately named Two Rivers. There are about a dozen producers in the area, working primarily with red varieties, such as Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Alicante Bouschet. A few white varieties, such as Viognier, Pinot Gris and Albariño are also found in a few vineyards. (Wine/Appellations)
