Bennett Valley Vineyard Estate Parcel

This 80 Acre Bennett Valley Vineyard Estate parcel is absolutely gorgeous!  It has 42+/- acres planted to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Merlot with a vineyard lease to Jackson Family Wines that pays $275,000 a year with 5 years left to its original term.  Jackson Family wines uses the fruit from this vineyard for some of its most sought after labels such as La Crema.  If you would rather have the fruit for your own winery rather than the lease, it is possible to negotiate that as well.

The land is gentle and rolling located in the heart of Bennett Valley, one of the most beautiful valleys Sonoma County has to offer.  Bennett Valley has become very popular for anyone who wants to live in a beautiful wine country setting but prefers to stay away from the congestion and tourism other similar valleys have with all of their wineries such as Dry Creek Valley and Alexander Valley in Healdsburg about 25 minutes North.

Kenwood, Glen Ellen and downtown Santa Rosa are all just 15 minutes or less from this location.  Also, access to San Francisco is made easy by driving over the adjacent hill right into Petaluma missing all of 101, Rohnert Park and Hwy 12 traffic.  The Golden gate bridge is only 45 minutes away.

This is a stunning parcel and a great income opportunity that won’t last long.  It’s perfect for someone wanting to build their dream estate without any flaws that could limit the amount of money a sensible developer would spend creating something magnificent here.  It’s a great investment for its desirability as it is now, for its potential to subdivide and for the vineyard income it generates.

Antonina’s Vineyard – 5400 Plum Ranch Road

This small vineyard of 865 vines on 4 by 6 spacing with bilateral cordon trellising and cane pruning has a southwest exposure with a 15% grade.  This vineyard (1 commercial acre) is under year to year contracts and has consistently produced award-winning wines.  It rests at 1,000 feet elevation on volcanic soils in the new Fountaingrove District AVA.  The vineyard is registered as a commercial vineyard with Sonoma County and is certified sustainable.  Eight different varieties are planted, mostly Cabernet Franc, Petite Syrah, and Syrah.  Smaller plantings include Grenache, Mourvedre, Viognier, Semillon, and Sauvignon Blanc.

See the ‘Vineyard Vine Count, Varietal, Clone/Rootstock’ informational spreadsheet available in the Flyer & Reports tab of this website for additional information.

Grapes are sold to small boutique producers and home winemakers.  All grapes have been sold by annual contract (or kept for the owner’s home wine production) since the vineyard’s third leaf in 2010.  The vineyard has produced numerous award-winning wines including Petite Syrah that was best red wine at a recent Sonoma County Harvest Fair Amateur Wine Competition.  The vineyard is designed to break even financially.  There is a backup vineyard management company for spraying and work the owners have chosen to hire out.  The current owners enjoy farming this vineyard themselves and have done most of the critical processes together including fruit drop and harvest.  The vineyard is fitted for full irrigation by zone, but typically very little irrigation is needed.  Harvest here generally begins in early September and is finished around mid-October.  Total vineyard production in tons for the past few years is:

2013               3.46  tons

2014               3.42  tons

2015               2.48  tons

2016               2.02  tons

2017                3.16  tons

This vineyard could easily produce more fruit, but the current owners have strived instead for the highest quality by minimizing grape production to enhance fruit quality.  They mostly have repeat customers that are delighted with the vineyard’s grapes.  Most contracts are locked in by spring.  Even though this vineyard is small, its owners are members of the Fountaingrove District Winegrowers Association and participate with the Sonoma County Winegrowers Commission.

This is truly a premier Modern Sonoma Wine Country Luxury Estate 2nd to none currently offered on the market today.
