Nuns Canyon Vineyard for Sale


I have several vineyards listed for sale in Wine Country!  As people are searching for information, they might expect to find ALL vineyards listed as Napa Valley – although it’s a very large geographic footprint, and the grapes grown in Sonoma, St. Helena, Kenwood, Napa and Calistoga differ largely from each other too!

Nuns Canyon Vineyards is located on the Mayacamas Mountain Range located near Glen Ellen.  The property is located at  2449 Nelligan Road, Kenwood and totals 114.1 +/- acres and includes 113.48 +/- acres of vineyard planted on gentle to steep slopes of the range.  Elevations are 1,300-1,755′ and the vineyards have southwestern exposure.  

List price-$7,500,000.  Southwestern exposure allows this vineyard site to enjoy full sun exposure and produce high quality red varietals.

Grape varietals include: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Sangiovese and Zinfandel. The vineyard is separated into 20 blocks planted from 1994 to 2008. Spacing is a combination of double, 12×8 and 9×6. 9 acres of Syrah were grafted to Cabernet Franc in 2011.

Varietal Acres (+/-) as a % of Total are:
Cabernet Sauvignon 50.27 or approximately 44% of the planted vineyard
Merlot 34.51 or approximately 30% of the planted vineyard
Zinfandel 14.32 or approximately 13% of the planted vineyard
Sangiovese 2.99 or approximately 3% of the planted vineyard
Cabernet Franc 11.39 or approximately 10% of the planted vineyard

Fruit characteristics: Straight forward berry character, similar to Napa style.
Grape Sales: Wines produced from this vineyard are made by St. Francis Winery.  Wine quality as reported by the winery is excellent. Wine samples are available upon request.
