Welcome to Hawk Creek Vineyard. The vineyard and future winery in California’s gold country is located at the southern end of the Fair Play American Viticulture Area. The vineyard was established in 1999 along Cedar Creek outside of the abandoned mining town of Coyoteville and a once thriving Pony Express route. We are at 2100 to 2300 feet with a variety of microclimates suitable for ultra-premium varietals. The site has been undergoing constant growth and development.
The vineyard sits on Josephine soil. The foothills of California and specifically Hawk Creek Vineyard require drip irrigation and frost protection. The vineyard basks in warm sunlight to be cooled by afternoon falling foothill temperatures and mountain breezes. This allows a longer growing season than most areas in the foothills with development of full flavors and color intensity. A definite stop on the vineyard trail by any connoisseur of fine wine is a must. By appointment only.
