General Details

A multi-generational estate vineyard, winery and residence in southern Mendocino County. Whaler Vineyards rests elevated on the Mayacama Bench, in an idyllic setting just above the Russian River, accessed by a gated and landscaped drive. Approximately 28 acres are planted to Zinfandel, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon, which have been farmed with care for many years. The vineyards surround the residence and functional winery. The residence is protected by mature redwoods, while capturing commanding views in all directions. Unique finishes, such as interior redwood cladding, reclaimed from the Hetch Hetchy Aqueduct, bring a warm rustic and refined feel. Outdoor living is complimented by expansive 2nd story decking, mature landscaping and inground pool. The winery facility is well equipped, with ample conditioned space and a history of production. The adjacent shop houses the equipment necessary to maintain the ranch, as well as a separate well-appointed living unit and office. The onsite reservoir provides water storage and a perfect place for summer recreation. A truly diverse wine country offering, within 2 hours of the Bay Area, awaits.

Vineyard Details

Planted above the Russian River on the Mayacama Bench, the vineyard shows vigor as a result of adequate soils and exposure. The vineyard is primarily planted to Zinfandel, with the small balance of the acreage planted to Syrah, which was T-Budded over from Zinfandel in 1990, and Cabernet Sauvignon. The vineyard is professionally managed by Chevalier Vineyard Management and has a strong history of fruit sales to Jackson Family Wines and McNab Ridge Winery. Small lots of Zinfandel and Syrah have gone into the estate Whaler Flagship Zinfandel and Syrah, both award winning wines.

The elevated location eludes frost in the spring and the vineyard is mainly dry farmed. Whaler Vineyards is a well kept vineyard operation with a strong history of quality and fruit demand.
