York Mountain Winery

York Mountain Winery, founded by Andrew York in 1882 as Ascension Winery, was recently purchased by Epoch Estate Wines. Epoch Estate Wines is dedicated to the boutique production of ultra-premium quality Rhone Variety, Tempranillo and Zinfandel wines. Founded in 2004 by prospectors and oenophiles Bill and Liz Armstrong, it is committed to becoming one of the region's preeminent wineries and is honored to be the new owner of the historic York Mountain property. Epoch Estate will rebuild, restore, and renovate the 1882 winery, the 1898 farm house, as well as the outbuildings. Epoch Estate will make York Mountain Winery its new home by opening a tasting room this fall! – Description from kristenac

  • Where you drink wine can be important. An overheated or too noisy room or city stress can downgrade the pleasures of even a very good wine.  Conversely, tranquility that allows you to focus on what’s in your glass can upgrade even a so-so sipper. What if you could leave behind all aspects of external civilization, even connectivity to all signal... Read More
