This stunning 347+/- ACRE Vineyard and Winery is located in the heart of Amador County’s wine country. With approximately 50 planted acres, this beautiful property is situated in the Sierra foothills near the historic towns of Sutter Creek and Jackson. Held by a pioneering family in the California wine industry for more than 3 decades, this formerly operated roadside winery, winery, tasting room, processing facility and event venue offers much potential for future development. The Amador County Rhone zone has a reputation of consistently producing superior wines.
Irrigation is supplied from the Amador Water Agency via aqueduct running near the perimeter of the property. The immediate area receives approximately 33+ inches of precipitation annually. Average high temperature for the area is 71.8 degrees Fahrenheit, while the average low is 49 degrees Fahrenheit. The overall average temperature is 60.4 degrees Fahrenheit. Half of the annual precipitation falls during the first trimester of the year. The ranch elevation is approximately 2000 feet above sea level; above the fog line and exposed to the daily on-shore/off-shore coastal breezes.
Ku-ring-gai Ridge Vineyard and Winery is ideally located on Ridge Road, a well-traveled route providing high visibility for the quaint winery and tasting facility and the expansive vineyard. Turning onto the ranch reveals an oak-studded terrain consisting of interconnected vineyard blocks demarcated by gentle ridges. There are many desirable home sites on the property with incredible panoramic, pastoral views. This property has special appeal as a result of not having been developed for residential use; a pristine palette upon which the discriminating buyer can create their own vision.
