The Clear Lake AVA, which encompasses the Red Hills AVA and the High Valley AVA, surrounds Clear Lake, the largest natural freshwater lake in California. The lake is approximately 18 miles long and 9 miles wide and has a large moderating effect on the AVA's climate. Clear lake experiences warm days and cool nights, with a 50 degree diurnal temperature difference not uncommon.
