A dispute over the naming rights to a swath of land in the Mayacamas mountains appears to have reached its conclusion.
Winegrape growers in northern Sonoma and southern Mendocino counties have agreed to amend their petition for a new American Viticulture Area on the western flank of the Mayacamas.
Rather than the “Pine Mountain-Mayacmas” designation originally proposed to the federal government, the area’s 13 growers will now ask to name their proposed AVA “Pine Mountain-Cloverdale Peak.”
