While visiting the Yosemite area, we stopped at the Butterfly Creek winery. The proprietor was outgoing, fun. We tasted several wines, all were great. We left with the Reisling and a Merlot along with some neat items from the little gift shop. A little out of the way but definitely worth the time!!

The owner served our wine, and he was probably the most friendly, talkative fellow we met along our 3-week trip around the Gold Country. The wines were pretty good, and I bought a bottle of their Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Reserve. There are also some interesting goodies sold there by local people, that you can't get anywhere else.

We were staying in the area and decided to drive to Butterfly Creek Winery for tasting. The owner was there and welcomed us in for tastings of their Chardonnay, Zinfandel, merlot, red blend and Cabernet wines. Since we're red wine drinkers, we skipped the Chardonnay, but did sample the rest while visiting with the owner. He shared the family and... More

Nice drive to the winery. Small tasting room. Bob was a real nice host but no formal tour. Nice friendly dogs on site. Wine is real reasonable starting at $10 a bottle.

My husband & I spent a week in Mariposa to visit Yosemite. On our day off from hiking we drove to the Butterfly Creek Winery. Great conversation & beautiful property! The owner is very knowledge of the park with great hiking recommendations. Sadly we only brought two bottles of wine home with us. Drank one bottle on our first night... More

Having arrived in Mariposa from San Francisco, we were advised to visit the BCW by several local people. The drive to the Winnery was wonderful, and when we arrived Bob met us in the Car Park. We finally made it to the small, but cosy tasting room and samplled several great red wines. Having purchased two bottles of Merlot, my... More

After touring Yosemite all day we rushed to BCW because of the wonderful reviews. We were not disappointed. It was even better . We tasted 6 different wines and left with a few bottles. We should have brought a picnic. Lovely tables outside. Next time!! We love the place and Bob is fun to talk to. He is also guiding... More

Bob is a great storyteller and worth the visit. My only negative is his wine is better than his storytelling. The tasting room is small as is the gift shop but the wines surpass everything. While driving down a road that you think is taking you off the edge of the earth you find a simple tasting room with picnic... More

I checked the hours on the website right before we left. We drove all the way out there just to find the "Closed for Private Event" sign.

Cute family owned winery nestled in the Sierra mountains near Yosemite, a perfect stop after you've visited the park. If you're in a bad mood, Bob Gerken, the winemaker, will see to it that you don't leave that way!! Butterfly Creek has won several awards and has a nice variety of reds and whites to suit most palates. BCW is... More
