The Central Coast Winery & Vineyard Real Estate Review


  • Dan Karlsen (former winemaker for Chalone and Talbot) is selling his unique Upper Carmel Valley Winery and vineyard in Monterey County. 40 acres, 7 planted to chard and pinot, a 4,500 case winery and comfortable home. Price recently reduced to $1,250,000
  • John Cushman’s Zaca Mesa Winery in Santa Barbara. Buyers are circling, however it's currently still available for $30M+
  • Under $1M westside Paso Robles, 14 acres of vineyard, 600sf workshop, solar and a newer tripple-wide
  • 35 acres planted and managed by VPS with nice home (possible vacation rental) on Airport Road in Paso Robles. Asking less than $2M, at this new price, the numbers are making sense. My breakdown...$600k for home and shop, puts the vineyard at about $40k/acre.

  • J&J Winery $2.9M
  • Clautiere Winery $1,950,000
