York Mountain received its designation as an AVA in 1983. Sitting on 9,360 acres, York Mountain is part of the eastern Santa Lucia Mountain Range in San Luis Obispo County. Vineyards on York Mountain are at high elevation of around 1,500 feet. The soil is made up of chalky limestone and is considered to be not very fertile, which causes the vines to put all of their efforts into developing the fruit. The high elevation gives York Mountain extended hours of sunshine daily and the hot sun is tempered by cool coastal breezes. The mountain is known for producing complex and interesting red varietals, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Pinot Noir.
