The winery and vineyard market has been wild in the first half of 2018 with Gallo's purchases of Rancho Real Vineyard and Sierra Madre Vineyard in Santa Barbara County. Both sales come out to approximately $65,000/vineyard acre. In Paso Robles J&J Winery and Burbank Ranch Winery have sold plus there was a record setting sale at approximately $170,000/vineyard acre in the Willow Creek sub AVA of Paso Robles; see "Comps" below for details. 

I am grateful to have recently visit Tuscany, Italy. A highlight was visiting a friend's winery, Monte Bernardi in the heart of Chianti. Thanks to Manu Fiorentini of Ipak Wine for his generous school auction donation. The stay at San Fabiano was amazing!

Have a look below at a fantastic 100-acre vineyard opportunity planted mostly to Cabernet in Paso Robles called Armour Ridge. Spread the word. 

Kenneth Volk Vineyards (Santa Barbara County Winery below) is back on the market, no fault of the opportunity. The real estate/equipment are being offered as a stand-alone offering for $3.7M, brand & business are optional. If interested please get in touch.
