Opportunity awaits at this vineyard estate complete with a minor use permit for a tasting room and small winery allowing for annual production of up to 15,000 cases. Cultivate your dream on 40 secluded acres in the heart of Lake County's Red Hills AVA, located just under one hour from Calistoga and Ukiah and less than 10 minutes to the quaint and charming town of Kelseyville.

The 1400 sq ft mid-century modern home was remodeled in 2020 and features 3 en-suite bedrooms and a gourmet chef's kitchen complete with new cabinetry, stone counters, a 48-inch, 6 burner stove/flat top and top of the line appliances. A drive to the top of the property exposes the true gem: a building site with breathtaking 360-degree, panoramic vineyard & mountain views. A truly singular offering with endless potential.
To better understand the desirability of this wine growing wine region I have included some excerpts from a press release that Wine Business.com published on January 15, 2019:
"Andy Beckstoffer, perhaps the most recognized California grower of wine grapes, announced today that Beckstoffer Vineyards has purchased the 220-acre Clear Mountain Vineyard from Treasury Wine Estates. Beckstoffer will be renaming the vineyard Amber Mountain Vineyard, in recognition of the red volcanic soils of the Red Hills and as a nod to the company’s nearby Red Hills vineyards, Amber Knolls and Crimson Ridge.
The vineyard formerly known as Clear Mountain was planted in the 1980’s by Napa’s Beringer Winery and has long been a hallmark for Cabernet Sauvignon production in the Red Hills. Its grape and wine quality influenced Beckstoffer’s decision to begin his Red Hills involvement in 1997, which subsequently began the modern era of premium vineyard plantings in Lake County.
Since then, Beckstoffer has steadfastly been committed to proving that the Red Hills can produce ultra-premium Cabernet rivaling the best that California has to offer...'We think that the Red Hills has the promise to be the best non-Napa Cabernet Sauvignon in California. There is only one Napa Valley, but we believe the Red Hills Cabernet Sauvignon has the promise to be the most exciting new wine in the entire global New World of Wines' said Beckstoffer of the purchase and his company’s ongoing investment in and commitment to the Red Hills".
This property shares a property line with Beckstoffer's Amber Knolls West vineyard and allows for the opportunity to develop your own estate winery. Recent scores from The Wine Enthusiast magazine awarded numerous Red Hills wines with scores of 92 points plus. Come build your dream!
