While visiting the Yosemite area, we stopped at the Butterfly Creek winery. The proprietor was outgoing, fun. We tasted several wines, all were great. We left with the Reisling and a Merlot along with some neat items from the little gift shop. A little out...More

The owner served our wine, and he was probably the most friendly, talkative fellow we met along our 3-week trip around the Gold Country. The wines were pretty good, and I bought a bottle of their Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Reserve. There are also some interesting...More

Nice drive to the winery. Small tasting room. Bob was a real nice host but no formal tour. Nice friendly dogs on site. Wine is real reasonable starting at $10 a bottle.

After touring Yosemite all day we rushed to BCW because of the wonderful reviews. We were not disappointed. It was even better . We tasted 6 different wines and left with a few bottles. We should have brought a picnic. Lovely tables outside. Next time!!...More

I checked the hours on the website right before we left. We drove all the way out there just to find the "Closed for Private Event" sign.

Cute family owned winery nestled in the Sierra mountains near Yosemite, a perfect stop after you've visited the park. If you're in a bad mood, Bob Gerken, the winemaker, will see to it that you don't leave that way!! Butterfly Creek has won several awards...More
