York Creek Vineyards
Wines from the Top of the Mayacamas Mountain Range
York Creek is 1250–1800 feet above sea level, perched atop the mountains that split Napa and Sonoma.
York Creek is composed of draining volcanic Aiken loam and Boomer gravelly loam.
York Creek's altitude combined with well-drained soils result in intense wines with acidity and structure that lends to expressive wines with excellent aging potential.
York Creek's elevation exposes our grapes to less water and cooler temperatures. Tiny berries struggle, keeping yields small with intense flavors.
York Creek is a massive, rolling vineyard with an incredible assortment of varietals, from Zinfandels to Pinot Blanc and Touriga Nacional.
Elyse makes three wines from York Creek — and we blend a touch of Pinot Blanc into our Sonoma Chardonnay.
