Oakville, Napa Valley
The soils of the Oakville district are broadly categorized into three types. In the hills, residual soils are created from the breakdown of the various bedrock units. Along the margins of the valley just below the hills, distinct alluvial soils form on the fans composed of material washed down from the adjoining hills during torrential rain events. Along the axial part of the valley where the Napa River flows are fluvial soils, finer grained loam coming from up stream locations and deposited from flood waters
