Approximately 9 acres planted to vineyard plus a well appointed 3 bedroom 3 bath home, detached garage, shop and barn on 15.62 acres total.
Built on the rocky slopes of the Chenoweth Hills, the vineyard’s southeast slopes are optimal for sunlight exposure and growing a staggeringly wide variety of wine grapes. The slope ranges from 5-25% with rows going straight up the hill in a near N/NW – S/SE row orientation. This orientation gives even ripening on both sides of the clusters, resulting in superior flavor and protection from sun burn. Hence the name, – it really is very bright. With elevations ranging from 415′-640′ and Chenoweth loam soils this is a compelling vineyard site with a proven track record of producing premium wine grapes. The property is near Bangsund Vineyards, from which many vineyard designate wines have been produced by Catherdral Ridge and others.
HOME AND OUTBUILDINGS
The 3 bd. / 3 bth. daylight ranch home is 2,400 sq. ft. and was built in 1980. The home offers a functional layout with great territorial and vineyard views. Updates include granite tile counters in the kitchen, tile backsplash in kitchen, baths and wet bar in the family room. Tile floors in the mud room, utility room and laundry room. There is a detached garage along with an RV barn / shop that could potentially be converted into a wine production building. There is along a historic horse/hay barn that could be repaired or replaced.
Approx. 9 acres planted from 2015-present. The wide range of grapes planted are detailed in the chart below.
