The Wines

Our family has been growing grapes and making wine for generations. For years we have handcrafted small amounts of award-winning wines. We are passionate about sharing these wines with our family and friends and, up until now, we have had a very limited distribution. We are now making small quantities of these wines available to purchase on line. We invite you to come and experience Yokayo wines! 

Below is a brief overview of our current wines, as well as some occasional special collections exclusive to this site.

Buy a pair for only $110.00
