California Ranch, Church & Vineyard Auction!Must SeeTop 10 Florida Condos For Sale
Inwood Valley, California, is in the northern part of the state near the Oregon border in prime wine growing country in the foothills of the Cascade Mountain Range. Located in a cooler area, wine produced there is similar to German wines. Anselmo Vineyards is the first public winery of the Inwood Valley Appellation (AVA), the designation of which was acquired in 2012. Obtaining an appellation is a long, tedious process through government agencies, ending with review by the Treasury Department, sometimes taking as long as six years to achieve. The vineyard grows Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petite Bordeaux, and Merlot grapes and produces 2,000 to 2,500 cases of wine seasonally with license to produce up to 25,000 cases
A thriving business, there are many venues for dining, tasting or just sitting on the terrace sipping wine and relishing the view. The chef gets raving reviews, and aside from being highly skilled, he also has a special secret: Anselmo is a vineyard, but it’s much more. Everything he serves is grown there because it is part of Seven Hills Land & Cattle, a 2,600-acre ranch. The beef is from their own Angus herd and vegetables and fruit come from their large and attractively laid out gardens. Everything consumed there is farm-to-kitchen fresh, including lamb and honey. Within its vast acreage, there is also horseback riding, fly fishing, bird and large game hunting. It’s even possible to practice your target skills at the 12-station sporting clays course. The paddock area has a documented 1,000-year-old oak tree; the oldest oak in the state of California.
Buildings and venues include a two-suite bed and breakfast, romantic custom-built Romanesque chapel, 200-seat glass conservatory/event center with nearby Mediterranean-inspired pavilion for open-air ceremonies, seven individual residences on-site including the owner’s main residence, a helipad and grass airstrip, a 2,576-square-foot wine cave, dining hall, main barn, hay barn, and stables. The property has something else of great value that the rest of the state is seriously lacking - lots of water. The farm/vineyard has waterfalls, large stocked ponds, irrigation in place and hydroelectric power generated by two ponds that produce an extra $60,000 in annual revenue. The farm’s water rights were signed by President William McKinley. For more information.
