A short distance from Yosemite National Park lies a small, peaceful valley. There is clean air, forest all around, and fields of plump, juicy wine grapes growing among the hills. This is our home.
Welcome to Butterfly Creek Winery.
The Gerken family arrived in Mariposa in 1972, and have been developing their family vineyards ever since. The mountain spring water, clean climate and zesty Sierra Nevada soil provide the perfect setting for the premium wines that Butterfly Creek Winery produces.
Butterfly Creek Winery and Vineyards is set on 200 acres adjoining the Sierra Foothills, yet only 45 minutes driving time from the borders of Yosemite National Park. When visiting the winery plan a picnic lunch next to our own bubbling "Butterfly Creek."
We will be closed Easter Sunday. Visitors may tour the winery from Tuesday through Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and by appointment anytime.
Aside from our winery tours, we also host weddings, reunions, graduation parties, and other events such as car club stopovers. If you're looking for the ideal location to stop, relax, and breathe the sweet mountain air with the region's finest wine at your fingertips, look no further than Butterfly Creek Winery.
