York Mountain Winery

California, the most populous state of the United States, located on the Pacific coast of North America is bordered by Oregon, Nevada, Arizona and Mexico. The four largest cities are Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose and San Francisco. California is also the home of and wine producing regions such as Santa Barbara and Northern California's Wine Country.
York Mountain Winery is located at the end of a sun-dappled roadway, nestled among old arching oaks and thick Spanish moss. In 1882, Andrew York discovered he discovered that the soil and climate were perfect for growing grapes thus York Mountain Winery was born. After almost 90 years, the York's sold the winery in 1970 to winemaker Max Goldman. The Goldman's continued the family winemaking custom for more than three decades. The family transitions in ownership have made York Mountain Winery the oldest winery in continuous operation.
In 2001, the local landmark was purchased by David and Mary Weyrich, owners of the award winning Martin and Weyrich Winery and Tasting Room. Though situated just seven miles west of Highway 101 along charming Highway 46 West in Templeton, its climate and soil conditions are so unique that the York Mountain appellation is one of the smallest recognized in the state of California. This unique combination of cool climate and low vitality hillside soils creates wines that possess a perfumed sophistication not found elsewhere.

Being the oldest, still operating winery on the Central Coast, York Mountain winemakers take great pride and care when handcrafting their unique wines. They want their customers to know that quality and not quantity, is what makes York Mountain wines so pleasant and sought after.
