The Lake

The largest natural body of fresh water in the state of California, Clear Lake exerts a moderating influence on the temperature and humidity of surrounding vineyards. Moist air moves up the hillsides with the warmth of day and back down into the lakeside valleys at night, keeping the climate stabilized. This gives Lake County fruit all the benefits of the “coastal" influence, without the colder temperatures and excessive moisture that occur nearer the Pacific Ocean.
