New York AVA Maps

A terroir for every taste. New York state is home to some of the most diverse terroir in the U.S. Our varied climates, soils, and bodies of water – with techniques aimed at preserving them all – combine to create unique conditions that produce countless varieties of dynamic wines, each with its own story to tell. And you can only find them in New York.

Click below to download our full set of 8 AVA maps, including a full New York State map and individual maps of the 7 major AVAs.

*For more information about AVA boundaries, we recommend the American Viticultural Area (AVA) Map Explorer provided by the TTB. The Map Explorer has information about each AVA, including its state and county, when it was established, what other AVAs it contains or is within, and a link to its codified official boundary description. You can even plot an address on the Map Explorer to see if that location is within an AVA. You can also download “shapefiles” for the various AVAs, which you can use with geographic information system (GIS) software.
