Sierra Foothills – Calaveras County
Home to Wine Brand Experiencing Explosive Growth (Available Separately)
Located just minutes from the tasting rooms and restaurants that line downtown Murphys, sits this unique gem of a property. A private valley setting with vineyards that grace the hillside and valley floor. Currently the home of 75± acres of premium vineyard with limestone influence and a wine brand that is experiencing explosive growth. The setting is one of natural splendor and the property has a history of local significance for both wine production and events in the region. The ranch was home to the first commercial vineyard planted post prohibition in the area, a local source of pride and a cultural touchstone.
The setting and improvements provide a sense of frontier California with various rustic buildings that range anywhere from the late 1800’s through the 1980’s. The homes and winery buildings still serve more than a practical purpose. The vineyard however is modern, manicured, productive and quality oriented. This specific location provides unique soil composition that adds to the quality of wine grapes. Soils in the area are characterized by red clay and gravelly sloped, which were formed from decomposed granite as a product of erosion from the Sierra Nevada range. The soil also contains a strong concentration of limestone which is known to contribute to high quality and durable vines.
The winery currently produces approximately 10,000 cases, is set up to produce 20,000 case of wine annually but the property has a permit for 100,000 case production.
This special property provides various opportunities: 1) Purchase the ranch as a retreat from the hustle and bustle, sell the grapes. Enjoy the rustic quality or upgrade. There are multiple amazing potential estate building sites with spectacular views. 2) Purchase the ranch and start your own wine brand. 3) Already in the wine business? Add these amazing vineyards to your portfolio and use the winery for production. 4) Purchase the ranch and wine brand (available separately) and continue the trajectory of explosive growth. Start selling wine direct to consumer from the winery and bring back events that the ranch was known for.
This is an absolutely gorgeous setting with a premium vineyard, practical winemaking facility, rustic sensibilities and a long history of making excellent wine located just minutes from busy downtown Murphys.
