I’m fortunate to be part of the Sotheby’s International Realty network. Not only does it allow me to see some truly exceptional homes on a regular basis, but it also provides me with the opportunity to market my exclusive listings on a local, national and international stage.

When you list with me you’re not only getting exposure here in the Cape Ann real estate market, but rather the entire world. In today’s blog post I’m going to feature a collection of homes around the world, courtesy of my network of affiliates, that are all beautiful vineyard estates. They may vary from style, location and appearance but they are all exceptional. I hope you enjoy them.


St. Helena, California – GREEG MOUNTAIN RANCH is an approximately 161 acre Vineyard Estate with approximately 4.57 acres of ultra-premium Cabernet Sauvignon vines that were planted in 2003. Managed by Pina Vineyard Management, the average yield over the past 5 years has been 11.8 tons. Yields in 2012 were 12.07 tons, 2013 was 15.3 tons and 2014 was 15.8 tons. Grapes have been consistently used by renowned Napa Valley winemakers.

The property includes 4 parcels on a private mountainside with spectacular panoramic views overlooking Lake Hennessy and the Valley floor. For buyers interested in vineyards only, an opportunity exists for a lot line adjustment that would separate the house from the vineyards allowing the house to be sold separately. A recent appraisal shows the value of the house and the approximate 5 acres it could sit on.

The approximately 5,337 square foot custom craftsman style home, built in 2004, is off the grid, offering 4 en-suite bedrooms and 5 full baths. Other features of the property include a pool, spa, outdoor kitchen, a 4-stall barn, self-contained power and water systems, 24/7 security system and gated entry. Vineyard report on file shows additional but limited plantable acreage. For more information on this beautiful estate, click here.
