York Creek Vineyards"San Francisco's only winery. This winery has been the dream of one of San Francisco's greatest innovators, Fritz Maytag. Fritz Maytag over 40 years ago rescued Anchor Brewing out of bankruptcy. Anchor was the original craft brewery and still one of the best selling craft breweries today. Fritz Maytag also owns a micro-distillery that we cannot get enough of his products to sell. He is all about quality and experimentation and at no expense. He designed his own fermentation tanks that he could produce small controlled lots of wines (100 cases per tank). He has 10 of these tanks that he uses for each lot. Cathy Corison was his original winemaker (up to the 2000 vintage)
His story is very interesting -- click here to read more
