Located in Southern Monterey County, just north of Paso Robles, this spectacular 80-acre parcel sits up overlooking Indian Valley. The centerpiece of the ranch is a producing 21-acre vineyard with the varietals evenly split between Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Most of the remaining ranch is rolling meadows with oak trees dotted throughout the landscape. Views are stunning.
A great deal of infrastructure is in place. The well services the entire vineyard which is drip irrigated, 14 blocks, controlled by time clock and electrical valves. Utilities are underground and a 12KVA transformer is located near one of the many home sites. The ranch is very convenient to Highway 101 but with a rural feel for sure.
Robert E. Goodwin Farming Company professionally manages the vineyard as the owners reside off site. One of our community’s fine wineries, Robert Hall, buys the fruit and has a contract with the owner for 2013 and 2014. In 2013 the price for Cabernet will be $1300 a ton and Merlot is $1200 a ton.
Vineyard rows are spaced every 10 feet with vines every 5 feet along each row totaling approximately 871 vines per acre. Cabernet is 50% Clone 7, 50% Clone 15 all on 5BB Rootstock. Merlot is 100% Clone 181 also on 5BB Rootstock. There is more plantable ground, which could be developed. The vineyard is entirely deer fenced contiguously with another 80-acre ranch with vineyard.
Reminiscent of Tuscany this beautiful ranch could serve as a convenient weekend retreat or permanent home. Most of the hard and costly development work has been done. San Miguel is the closest small town and Paso Robles is 20 minutes to the south. Offered at $859,500 (193188).
