Modern Sonoma Wine Country Estate and Vineyard

This Sonoma Country Estate offers 10+/- beautiful acres with an architecturally custom 4,100+/- square foot home designed by local architect Gary Tucker, who studied with Frank Lloyd Wright at Taliesin West.  This home is currently furnished in an Asian style that lends itself well to its Modern design.  Some of the furniture pieces are available for sale first to the Buyer that pursues owning this gorgeous country property.

The modern design of this home lends itself well to many styles of interior décor.  Its rooms are all open and spacious with large view picture windows wrapping each to take advantage of the dramatic countryside and city light views looking down on 3 of Sonoma Counties most desirable valleys; Rincon Valley, Russian River Valley and Riebli Valley.

Situated just 10 minutes from an abundance of shopping choices along with world class restaurants, this property is close-in and yet offers perfect privacy with a dramatic setting that is so desirable and hard to match.  It is in a privately gated community of exclusive country estates and has its own private olive tree lined 1,000-foot driveway that meanders to the property peeling off the main shared road just after the main gate.  Even its private drive offers privacy from neighboring properties and views over Rincon Valley.

Sitting above Rincon Valley, the property looks out over a swath of city lights at night with rural hillsides during the day.  Views from this property extend roughly 30 miles to the west, north, and northeast including year-round sunsets, the Geysers and Mt. St Helena.  From here you can see all the way to Sebastopol and its coastal hills in the distance, Annadel State Park as well as Mt. Taylor Regional preserve near Bennett Valley and wrapping the greater countryside of Santa Rosa.

The school district here is one of the most sought after in the area including Maria Carrillo High School, Rincon Valley Middle, Hidden Valley and Proctor Terrace Elementary Schools, just to name a few.  Cardinal Newman High School is also nearby offering a private school option with as highly accredited sports and educational programs sought after by many families for their kids.

The spacious eagles nest Master Suite has a gas fireplace accentuated by its dramatic views and luxurious bath that takes in serene Japanese Gardens and looks out over the green energy efficient partially planted roof featuring periwinkle and succulents.

The amazing cook’s kitchen has a large Viking gas cooktop with six burners and grill and Viking hood vent, separate Monogram refrigerator and freezer, double oven, standard and wine dishwashers, prep and baking stations, hot water dispenser, two disposals, bamboo flooring, custom cabinetry as well as tons of storage.  No chef would ever be wanting when preparing gourmet meals in this kitchen.

Privacy is afforded to your guests in this home having a separate guest wing with two en-suite bedrooms overlooking the Japanese gardens, the planted roof-top and long views beyond.  The powder room features a distinctive concrete countertop and marble basin.  The large office overlooking the great room was purposely designed for two with built in desks and bookcases.  This space has the perfect light for computers and the right mix of privacy and view-scapes making for a very productive office space to work in at any time of day or night.  Plus, there is a spacious activity room for exercise, projects, or added bedroom.

One of the main wine country features of this exquisite home is its 1,500-bottle climate-controlled redwood wine cellar central to living and dining areas on the main entry floor.  This wine cellar is a must-have especially considering that this property offers its own wine making opportunity with ‘Antonina’s Vineyard’ and its variety of plantings including Petite Syrah, Syrah, Cab Franc, Sauvignon Blanc and more all described in detail below.  For wine enthusiasts, you can create your own wines in multiple varietals and store them for the pleasure of you and your guests in this exquisite wine cellar.  There is space afforded for wine making using the third bay in the garage if desired.

This home was designed to include an abundance of closet and storage space throughout all its rooms including a basement area for tools and storage.  There are 3-separate heating/cooling units, 1 for each zone within the home, and a circulating hot water system throughout the house.  This home is also wired for a back-up generator unit servicing critical items such as the kitchen, refrigerators, freezer, well, wine-cellar, etc.  Other features of this home include a large 5000 gallon water tank hidden behind bamboo, fire hydrant, interior fire sprinkler system with alarm, 1000 gallon in-ground propane storage tank with propane piped to BBQ and fire pit in Japanese garden, in-wall/ceiling speakers and electronics throughout wired to a central equipment closet (including satellite and internet), central vacuum system with 2 kitchen “dustpans” and more…  It has a large hot tub privately located on the side yard perched over city light views.  It has cantilever decks wrapping the home with easy access for entertaining.

The landscaping and grounds include a beautiful pool looking out over the valleys, palm trees, 20 Italian variety olive trees, as well as plum, figs, citrus, pomegranate, persimmon and quince.  A tool shed is provided for the vineyard and yardwork tools as well as holding the lawn tractor and other equipment.  Enjoy the picnic table at the property’s 1,000-foot elevation on its ridge line which captures a magical view to the coast.  Stroll or drive up Plum Ranch Road past conservation open space and neighboring vineyards with views to forever.  The setting here is one of peace and quiet serenity giving you a sense of ease and a calm center.  Families of hawks fly overhead and screech occasionally.

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.
