Yountville was approved as the 11th sub appellation of the Napa Valley in 1998 and is comprised of 8,620 acres, of which roughly 2,700 are planted to vines. Although recently established, our appellation boasts a rich history -- the first vineyards in the Napa Valley were planted here by George Yount in the mid-1800s.
The Yountville Appellation Association, with over 20 winery and vineyard members, is a trade membership association charged with promotion of the Yountville Appellation.
