Rector Creek Vineyard
This historic vineyard, once part of Yountville founder George C. Yount’s estate, has been a source of wine grapes for almost 100 years. The vineyard occupies the alluvial fan of Rector Creek where it emerges from the outlet of Rector Reservoir, moving large cobble and boulders typical of an alluvial fan. The owners are managing the site to revegetate the banks and allow a wide corridor for the creek.

She was also a faith healer. The 89 acres of vineyard on the site are carefully managed to conserve soil and use very low amounts of chemicals.
