2012 Yorkville Highlands Wine Festival
Every year on a Saturday in August the Yorkville Highlands Growers and Vintners Association hosts our Wine Festival in the scenic hills of southern Mendocino County. This year's event takes place from 12:00 to 5:00 p.m. at Yorkville Cellars, located at mile marker 40.4 on Highway 128, between Cloverdale and Boonville.
This year's festival celebrates the 14th anniversary of Yorkville Highlands becoming an official wine growing appellation.
Yorkville Highlands Wine Festival has that old-time charm you just don't find in other regions. Over 60 wines will be available to taste produced from Yorkville wineries including: Bink Wines, Halcon Vineyards, Judson Hale, LeVin Estate, Lone Oak, Maple Creek, Meyer Family, Routh 128 Winery, and Yorkville Cellars. These artisan wines aren't found on supermarket shelves. Enjoy the traditional paella feed and delicious local cuisine, join in or watch a fun grape stomp, and other highland wacky games, a tempting silent auction, while listening to live music.
