The Yates Family Vineyard is located on the slopes of the Mayacamas Mountains, in the Mount Veeder Appellation. The 35 acres of steep, hillside vineyards were replanted by the Yates’ family in the early 1980s to Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc. At an average elevation of over 1,100 feet, the site, with its combination of microclimates and volcanic soils, produces incredible grapes with intense fruit flavors. These elements all contribute to the extremely long-lived wines from this vineyard. Ultimately the telling is in the tasting. We hope you will avail yourself of the opportunity to discover our very special wines. Read less
