The 3.11 acres vineyard in five blocks produced 10.774 tons of grapes in 2023 was sold to Alpha Omega winery in St. Helena. A 10-ton+ grape production would equate to appx. 500-600 cases of wine with a current market value of $300 retail per bottle. After expenses, this could equate to a profit of over $1,600,000.

The property is adjacent to prestigious Auberge du Soleil, the wine country's most iconic luxury resort hotel and restaurant.

Located between Oakville and St. Helena, the Rutherford AVA is a Mecca for those who love Cabernet in particular, offering up the kind of full-bodied, luxurious Cabs and a delightful array of Bordeaux blends. Rutherford’s got a special something in its soil—a magical mix of gravel and sandy loam along with a unique microclimate, gives grapes a longer time to hang and develop flavor. All this leads to wines that boast tannins softened into a smooth, dusty elegance, creating the renowned “Rutherford Dust”—a signature trait that’s become one of the most captivating qualities of Rutherford. Renowned wineries including Beaulieu Vineyard (BV), Inglenook, Peju, Cakebread, Rutherford Hill, and Sullivan Rutherford.

The location of 40 Auberge is one of the most prestigious in the entire Napa Valley, with entre to the world's most prestigious events and with it the opportunity to have memberships to the finest clubs and societies.  It is a rare and unique opportunity to step into a world of the finest wines and own the land where you can build your own wine brand on the shoulders of giants.
