United States

YORK CREEK VINEYARDS runs up and over the crest of the mountains to the west of the town of St. Helena, in a lush and beautiful area long known as "Spring Mountain." Wine grapes have been grown here for more than one hundred years, and we have vines in both Napa and Sonoma counties. At least twenty-four tree species are native here; an extraordinary richness of flora perhaps unequaled anywhere in California's Coast Range. – Description from Dragac
