Yorkville Cellars Description

One hundred miles north of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge, along picturesque Highway 128, is the tasting room and organic vineyards of Yorkville Cellars. The winery specializes in aromatic Sauvignon Blanc, rich Bordeaux blends and great country charm.

Heading west toward the Mendocino coastline is a country road that winds past sheep ranches, apple and peach orchards, redwood forests and the organic vineyards of Yorkville Cellars. It is the first winery you come to in the Anderson Valley, located near the tiny berg of Yorkville (population 25).

The wood-sided tasting room is perched above the vineyards and has one of the nicest views in the valley. Large mature oak trees dot the property, with picnic areas available for visitors. Inside is a comfortable room with oriental carpets complementing the wood walls and tasting bar. Some pottery and other gift items are for sale.

Yorkville Cellars’ wines are made in the European style, with lower alcohol and higher acidity to complement food. Case lots are small and run between 500 and 1,000 cases. The red blends are produced from the five traditional Bordeaux grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. The white blend is made from Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. All the varietals are produced in separate bottlings, and all of Yorkville’s wines are from organically certified grapes from Anderson Valley. Their own 30-acre vineyard has been farmed organically since it was planted in the 1980s.

Hard to get to, but worth the trip.
mikesq, Waltham
We met the owner who was very friendly. Good prices, no tasting fee and on top of that, when we bought three and we got 1 for 25cents! Wide range of wines Very friendly and knowledgeable server. Sauvignon Blanc was fruity and dry with a very nice finish. The 2112 Cab had a beautiful clear garnet color and a fruity cherry and mild pomegranate flavor. Our favorite was the Richard the Lion-heart Bordeaux-style blend, and they had a very nice sweet Malbec dessert wine.

Stop for Bordeaux
brianw, Concord
Great opportunity to sample the noble grapes of Bordeaux. Nice tasting room upstairs overlooking the vines. If Gary is pouring he is quite an experience as are the Owners. Favorites are the blends, Eleanor of Aquitaine and Richard the Lion Heart. Plus their spankings are incredible with ever changing varietals used. A must stop if you have an interest in Bordeaux.

Great little spot

Driving up the highway this is the first large vineyard you come to. The tasting room is up on the side of the hill and looks over Anderson Valley. They make their wine from organic grapes grown on site. The Bordeaux varieties are always my favorites, especially their silky Merlot. A great first stop in the Valley.
