Amapola Creek Vineyards consists of 100 acres along the sun-washed western slope of the Mayacamas Mountains adjacent to the highly-acclaimed Monte Rosso Vineyard. These red, iron-oxide soils have yielded superb wines for well over a century.
Founded by the renowned winemaster Richard Arrowood and now part of the B. Wise Estate, we are working with master vineyardist Phil Coturri to replant 25 acres as organically-certified estate vines.
A stagecoach road once ran through Amapola Creek. Elevation ranges from 1,000 feet in the Montaña Vista vineyard blocks down to 400 feet in the China Bowl vineyard blocks, named in honor of Chinese laborers who built a wall in the nineteenth-century of which a section can still be seen today near the winery.
