The history of Mayacamas is long, but most importantly, is still being written. The team strives each day to connect the past, present, and future through their work – a commitment to the most important traditions, methods, and tools of previous generations is central to their path forward as winemakers.
In 1889 John Henry Fisher purchased this rugged mountain land and built the winery Mayacamas still uses today from stones gathered around the property. He began a winemaking tradition that has been carried forward by generations of families – Taylor, Travers, and the Mayacamas team to name a few – all sharing a distinct love for this remote place.
This historic winery space, as well as two others constructed in later decades, were gently restored in 2013 and provide a considered environment that allows for an enhanced level of quality and consistency in the wines. Mayacamas believes strongly that their careful investment is already starting to yield the finest wines the property has produced to date.
