The ultra-premium wine-producer or seasoned wine industry investor will appreciate the opportunity the Poncia Dairy affords to develop a truly world-class estate vineyard in Western Sonoma County.
Oriented on a ridgetop in the Sebastopol Hills and totaling +/- 211 acres, with as many as +/- 115 plantable,* the ranch offers a scale rarely seen on such a compelling site. The gently rolling topography provides the ability to farm efficiently from 450-735’ in elevation, while the varying exposures allow a winemaker optimize the vineyard’s quality, and tailor it to their preferred style.
Now priced at $65,000 per plantable acre the ranch is significantly discounted to current pricing and historical trends for ultra-premium West County Pinot Noir land. The 5 residences provide much needed housing while the zoning (LEA 60) provides an opportunity to potentially subdivide (into 3 parcels) allowing a buyer to right-size the ranch for their needs while at the same time accelerating their return on investment.
The natural beauty and coastal influence of the ranch, as well as the rich farming history that spans nearly a century of ownership, harken back to the most pioneering vineyards on the Sonoma Coast and provide not only a stunning backdrop for a boutique winery,** but also for an exceptional equestrian estate, a back-to-the-land organic farm and cattle ranch, or an idyllic wine country retreat. This extraordinary ranch has the potential to be not only an incredible vineyard estate, but also a truly biodiverse farm.
All of this opportunity lies within the bounds of the two most preeminent Pinot Noir & Chardonnay appellations – the Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast.
