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

  • I was wondering what sort of new topic I could start that would pair nicely with my previous posting 'Weekday Wines'; well here it is - Weekend Wines.  Sometimes I just have to stop and take a minute to pat myself on the back for my quick wit but alas, this isn't one of those times.  Anyway, why not talk about wines we enjoy on weekends?  These ...

I’ll save the few Pinots I Tasted for a Pinot round-up, which might surprise some folks. You see I went to San... Read More

  • Gruner Veltliner, arguably the original hipster wine, has grown up and become a standard in the classical pantheon of top white wines. Along the way it was revealed that in Austria, Gruner is often a simple table wine, served in crown-capped liter bottles and not the subject of fawning terms of endearment. Yes, Gruner Veltliner is capable of rem... Read More

  • While traveling through Napa Valley last month I noticed that all the Vineyards I visited had roses planted around their crops. They're planted and watched closely for any early signs of infestation on the land. They monitor the Roses closely and upon early signs of problems, protective measures are taken to make sure the grape vines receive a s...

  • Carnivores and grillers, a few reasons to love Syrah: it’s a fantastic wine for pairing with any roasted meats, especially red meats like beef and lamb, as well as wild game. It is often peppery and sometimes smoky, with a roasted fruit and/or roasted meat flavor profile that makes it a fine accompaniment to anything barbecued or grilled (even, ... Read More

  • Being a cab lover I am hesitant to stray from what I like. On a recent occasion I had the opportunity to try a Zinfandel and to my amazement, it had some of the same attributes of the cabernets I love so well. I perused Snooth and stopped on a particular zin from Bogle vineyards. Gregory Dal Piaz gave it a nice rating and being a member of Snoot... Read More

Foxall is the only one not to have received anything yet, while Shi's SS wasn't heard from, but luckily an elf stepped in and sent her some wine. Finally, it look... Read More

  • I noticed that OutThere purchased seven bottles of a particular wine at $14 and it occurred to me that it was a $100 purchase, and enough to last about a week.  So I got curious, and mentioned in the thread that it would be interesting to know how much per week people spent.  Well, Emark has better records and more time on his hands than I do, a...
