The valley is sparsely populated on mostly large parcels with Boonville being the center of the valley in activity and population. The valley is filled with rolling hills, shaded with oak and madrone trees, as well as apple orchards, vineyards, and colorful wildflowers. Some 1,000 acres of wine grapes are produced in the area and many local wineries with tasting rooms are found along Highway 128. According to Food & Wine magazine, ‘Anderson Valley may be one of the best places in the country to grow Pinot Noir.’ (Source: 101 Things To Do: Mendocino County magazine).
