Bring your imagination and be prepared for a surreal experience.
Enter the property through the vineyard that is set upon gently rolling terrain dotted with beautiful mature oak trees, an olive tree orchard, a remodeled farm house, lush lawns, a large swimming pool, the Slaughterhouse Space studio / gallery and tasting room, and the current wine making facility. Pathways of decomposed granite lead you from one area to another. The official access provides an entrance through the vineyard to the farmhouse and studio entrance, there is another access for service related activities.

The Winery / Barn / Crush Pad
The original intention and permit was to operate the winery out of the former slaughterhouse facility, producing 5,000 cases and operating a public tasting room. Instead, the tasting room has been open by appointment and some small wine lot production has been made using the crush pad. The current owners have made larger lots using a custom crush facility bringing their barrels back onsite for barrel work and bottling. There is also cold storage in the barn with room for approximately 40 barrels and case storage.
The Slaughterhouse Space
The former slaughterhouse has been transformed into one of the most unique visual treats in wine country. Many one of a kind architectural details resonate throughout that highlight its past including vast cement forms, large windows, hearty wooden beams, massive doors with vintage hardware etc… There are numerous useable spaces currently utilized as an art studio, a gallery space for sculptures, wall art and lectures, a tasting room, an office with two rooms, and a bathroom.
The entire slaughterhouse space (approximately 5,000 sqft) was originally going to be used as the wine production facility and have a public tasting room. It appears that with minor modifications one could move forward with the original vision. A septic system was installed in 2002 for the purpose of producing 5,000 cases. New electrical improvements were made as well. Currently, the tasting room is only available by appointment.
The winery permit was approved in 2002 for wine production of 5,000 cases and a public tasting room. Events are allowed at the winery as long as they are related to the promotion of the winery and provided they are limited in size and frequency such that they are incidental to the winery operation. Because the winery has an approved public tasting room, the winery may participate in all industry wide events, such as “Taste of the Valley”, while the tasting room is open for public tasting. The winery is allowed both public and private events.
The farmhouse has been updated from its original condition and now resembles a style of modern farmhouse fusion. The farmhouse is approximately 1,400 sqft in size, has two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a large exterior deck overlooking several mature oak trees and a meadow. The farmhouse sits across from the gallery / tasting room space and is perfect for either overnights or living full time.
Dry Creek Appellation
The property sits in the Dry Creek Appellation and is close to the chic downtown Healdsburg area, known for producing ultra premium wines and creating vintages of full-bodied character, yet elegant and pleasant. The Dry Creek Appellation sits between two other world class wine regions including the Russian River Appellation and the Alexander Valley Appellation. This area has become a must visit location in the world of wine due to its quality, variety, and fine dining / shopping in and around Healdsburg.
There in lies the opportunity to take advantage of the growing notoriety and desirability of this region while providing a one of a kind experience in a location that has transcended the law of unintended consequences.
