In 2010, we were extremely fortunate to purchase the historic 150 acre York Mountain Winery property off York Mountain Road and Highway 46 West. This beloved and enchanting landmark (almost all San Luis Obispo residents over the age of thirty have visited York Mountain at one time or another) was established in 1882 by Andrew York, and it is the oldest winery in the Central Coast region. We are honored to serve as patrons of this gorgeous property and its iconic wine history.
Currently, the vineyards are fallow, but we look forward to replanting vines at this "cool climate" site (colder than Burgundy) and crafting wine that will boast York Mountain AVA stamp. Located just seven miles from the Pacific Ocean at an elevation of 1,500 feet, this property falls in the small 640 acre York Mountain AVA. We are excited about the future of York Mountain as we work to make it the home of Epoch Estate Wines. Our new "temporary" Tasting Room opened at York Mountain early in 2011. Stay tuned for updates as we breathe life back into York Mountain!
