VINEYARD

The grapes are currently contracted to a premium winery for 2018 harvest grapes, only. Farming costs vary with the amount of time and maintenance and the quality of grape production a buyer would like to achieve.

FRUIT

There are approximately 3 acres of premium Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Calistoga is designated an American Viticulture Area (AVA) and great winemaking begins in the vineyard. The vineyard fruit has produced award winning wines.

In December 2015, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate awarded a rating of 91 points to the 2013 Valley Floor Cabernet Sauvignon. This prestigious award came with Robert Parker’s glowing comments:

Beautiful dark, plummy/blackcurrant/licorice-infused aromatics jump from the glass of the full-bodied 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon. I’m not familiar with this estate, but this is certainly an outstanding effort in this vintage. Dense ruby/purple with good, sweet tannin           the wine was aged in only about 20% new French oak to emphasize the fruit character of         the vintage and that was done flawlessly. – Robert M. Parker, Jr.

PRICE PER TON

Quantity and price per ton depends on how the grapes are farmed, the vintage and many other factors such as pests and weather.  The first year, sellers harvested and made bulk wine to sell and not bottle (2011), sellers harvested just shy of 7 tons in the front.  Last year, farming for high quality wine, sellers harvested just shy of 4 tons. Note, there was a good deal of shattering in 2015.  Sellers believe, but do not guarantee, once the vineyard is fully up and running with the young vines producing that harvest could be somewhere around 5 tons on average per acre. Sellers believe the 2017 harvest should produce close to full production.

Price per ton for the Calistoga appellation is believed to be between $6,200/ton and $10,000/ ton. $7,500 is believed to be an average. 

WATER SOURCE

Abundant water production via three private wells. One of the wells is capped and not currently in use.

A deeded well is shared with the next-door neighbors. There is an easement on title/deed. The neighbors do not currently use the well and all of the well equipment belongs to the subject property. Electricity for pump is on the 2-bedroom, 2 bathroom, detached-separate home’s electrical meter -Solar!

GPM unknown.

Water storage tanks: 5,500 total gallons (Two: 3500 Gallons & 2000 Gallons)

House well: There is a filtration system. It was tested in 2008 and again in 2016 and upgraded and serviced regularly.

Neighborhood

Calistoga

Located in far northern Napa County, Calistoga has a distinctly relaxed feel. More than 125 years after its founding, the community still retains its small-town charm.

Calistoga is perhaps best-known for its many spas, thermal springs, and mud baths that line state Route 29, which runs through the heart of the small city. Calistoga knows it has something special and aims to keep it that way.

The small city’s main street offers an eclectic mix of shopping, wine-tasting rooms, and restaurants. There isn't a fast-food joint in town, so the locals head to Busters Southern BBQ for barbecue or Mary’s Home Plate Cafe for a burger. At the top of the food chain is Solbar, a Michelin-starred eatery that emphasizes local ingredients. Citizens are dedicated supporters of Calistoga’s schools and socialize at the community pool in the city’s center. 

For a lighter-than-air experience, Calistoga Balloons will float you over the sights of: Palisade Cliffs; Mount Saint Helena; Chateau Montelena; Old Faithful Geyser, which erupts every 40 minutes; and the Petrified Forest. For those who want to explore the area on foot, Robert Louis Stevenson State Park, located five miles north of Calistoga, offers a commanding view of the valley.

Homes in Calistoga are eclectic, ranging from smaller, older houses near the city center, to showplace countryside homes situated on several acres with mountain and vineyard views
