Nestled between the beautiful Alexander and Anderson Valleys near Yorkville, the Yorkville Highlands Appellation offers bucolic scenery and excellent wines. The area stretches nearly 16 miles on either side of Hwy 128, with over 356 acres of excellent wine grapes that range from Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon to Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Merlot. Over 40 wines are made from grapes from the Yorkville Highlands region, which is known for the passion and quality of the growers and winemakers who call it home. The wineries are all family owned and managed. Most, if not all, of the wines are made in small lots. This appellation hosts the annual Yorkville Highlands Wine Festival in August, which features over 30 wines made from grapes grown within the region, plus delicious regional cuisine, games and contests. The highland scenery is well worth the trip. See the sights and taste the wines!
