At the end of a sun-dappled roadway, nestled among old arching oaks and thick Spanish moss, you'll discover a Central Coast treasure called York Mountain Winery. In 1882, apple farmer, Andrew York, discovered his soil and climate were ideal for growing grapes -- thus York Mountain Winery was born.
After nearly 90 years, the York's sold the winery in 1970 to winemaker Max Goldman. The Goldman's continued the family winemaking tradition 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 & Weyrich Winery & Tasting Room. Their appreciation of York Mountain's heritage and their knowledge of the local wine industry helps ensure that the end of the road doesn't mean the end of the line for the region's most historic winery.
Though located just seven miles west of Highway 101 along scenic 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. Here the sun is always shining brightly while the breeze gently brings in the cool coastal air. This unique combination of cool climate and low vigor hillside soils creates wines that possess a perfumed elegance not found elsewhere.
We welcome you to come visit our winery and tasting room and relax with a glass of award-winning York Mountain wine surrounded by the breathtaking mountain views under the shade of the Sycamore trees. Located just 7 miles west of Highway 101 along Highway 46 West, in Templeton.
