York Mountain Winery
York Mountain Winery was established in the late 19th century. The winery is truly a historic landmark in California Wine Country. York Mountain specializes in Pinot Noir and Chardonnay but also makes Roussanne, Viognier, and Zinfandel.
York Mountain Winery has been sold to Epoch Estate Wines.
Even though York Mountain is one of the smallest AVAs in California, it produces head-turning wines. This reputation was created by York Mountain Winery, whose vineyards have been producing grapes since 1882.
In addition to its historical significance, the York Mountain Winery’s current production is also very good. In 2001, David and Mary Weyrich bought the property from Max Goldman. They have plans to expand the vineyards as well as build a bed and breakfast on the property. The couple also owns Martin & Weyrich Winery, which is located in the larger Paso Robles AVA.
The Weyrichs currently produce a number of different wines, but are best known for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. They make several different vineyard designate bottlings of these two varietals. The distinct terroir of each vineyard comes through in these wines.
The winery also produces Viognier, Roussanne, Albarino, Muscat, Port, Merlot, Zinfandel, and Cabernet Sauvignon. Many of these wines are made with grapes sourced from surrounding AVAs in California Wine Country.
