DHR has been transformed into a productive wine grape producing area while maintaining its bucolic setting in the heart of Yolo County. DHR is a master-planned and developed agricultural investment. Spread over 1,140 acres with 422.9 acres of premium wine grape vineyards with the remaining 721 acres available for future development planting. Foremost in the development of DHR has been the conjunctive-use water system. Professionally designed in 2012 with the vision of delivering water to most of 2,600 acres with new ag wells and connected into the local water district canal. The buyer will be a stockholder in a newly formed mutual water company (MWC) which is professionally managed like a water district for all stockholders and water users within the MWC. An elaborate, underground loop distribution system is interconnected to all reaches of the planted portions and with plans for expansion areas too. A portion of the property is subject to leasehold interest that will provide the buyer some immediate cash flow and the buyer can step in to farm 300+ acres of wine grapes in their prime. About 350 acres of the 722 acres can be further planted out to wine grapes, olives or nuts
Wine grape varietals include Chardonnay (110 Ac); Cabernet (71 Ac); Petite Sirah (70 Ac); Petite Verdot (78 Ac); Teroldego (30 Ac); Malbec (32 Ac); Syrah (32 Ac) and a micro block of Tannat. The blocks are uniformly developed on 6’ x 8’ row spacings with 1103 P rootstock, which has a high vigor and resistance to phylloxera and being well-adapted to drought conditions. All trellising utilizes a post and wire Vertical Shoot Position system.
