The Yorkville Connection
Bonny’s Vineyard is a highly regarded wine from Oakville, Napa Valley, regarded as one of the top appellations for Cabernet in the wine growing world. One might be curious then to note that the back of the Bonny’s bottle states that the wine was produced and bottle in Yorkville California. This is usually followed by the question, “Where the heck is Yorkville?”
The Yorkville Highlands is a small, and as the name suggests, rugged appellation in the Southern hills of Mendocino County. It is the home to Meyer Family’s sister project Meyer Family Cellars where Matt and Karen Meyer strive to produce one of California’s premier cool climate Syrahs.
