Sonoma Valley has long been coveted by generations who have sought a quality of life so rarely found within close proximity to a major metropolitan city. Even rarer today, this stunning vineyard property offers a unique glimpse into the simpler life of times past.
Once a part of the Sobre Vista farms with a long history of significant ownership, this beautiful family estate property has been enjoyed by four generations. Originally part of San Francisco doyenne Alma de Bretteville Spreckel’s estate, it was acquired by San Francisco banker Robert Hunter in 1973 when it was being used as a cattle breeding ranch. Hunter quickly turned the ample pastures and peach orchards into vineyards and began producing an award winning Blanc de Noir sparkling wine.
Bordered to the east by Sonoma Creek, the property is comprised of four separate legal parcels each with spectacular potential home sites with vineyard land. With a 20,000 winery permit and approx. 42 acres of vineyard land, the opportunity awaits the new owner to create a world class Sonoma Valley winery estate. For the equestrian, the gentle pastureland is a dream come true with acres to ride or load up the trailer and head out to one of the state or regional parks close by. The Historic Sonoma Plaza with its charming shops and fabulous restaurants is just minutes away. Even closer, the charming village of Glen Ellen, once Jack London’s home, offers lovely dining and the great Glen Ellen Market!
This coveted property now awaits the next steward of the land to take it to new heights.
