Agua Dulce Winery, an award-winning Californian wine-making enterprise, located just 45 minutes north of downtown Los Angeles, in the small town of Agua Dulce, has come on to the market at $23.5 million (£15.94m) through Christies Real Estate (00 1 310 385 2690).
According to the selling agent Marcie Hartley, ‘this property is one of the LA area’s best-kept secrets. It’s a fully operational winery, vineyard and residence located in the rustic Sierra Pelona Valley. It was founded in 1999, had its first release in 2001, and it’s also the largest winery in Los Angeles County.’
The 100-acre vineyard boasts six grape varieties—Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Sangiovese, Zinfandel and Merlot— and is able to produce premium wines as well as a fine Port.
Nestled in the heart of the estate is a large house that boasts beautiful views of the nearby Sierra Pelona mountains. With about 5,000 square feet of space, the property has five bedrooms, four bathrooms and a three-car garage. The grounds also include several outbuildings and guest residences, ample visitor parking and equestrian facilities.
The guide price is $23.5 million (£15.94m). This figure also includes a retail package (wine tasting shop) in Santa Barbara. For further information on Agua Dulce Winery please contact Christies Real Estate on 00 1 310 385 2690.
