"Winner's Circle" estate in Sebastopol comes with 24 acres of organic vineyards, asks $12.9 million

Fancy having your own vineyard and a fab Wine Country house to boot?

Imagine settling in at night in your 7,500-square-foot modern manse with hilltop panoramic views of the Russian River Valley mountains, woods, and 24 acres of organic pinot noir and chardonnay vineyards. Would you feel like you were #winning? Welcome "Winners Circle," a private 60-acre estate in Sebastopol once home to Walter's Vine Hill Ranch.


The iconic family home and its sprawling surrounds were built on the former owner's success in horse racing; now, it's a modern sanctuary for any champ who has $13 million to throw at it.

On the grounds are premium organic vineyards planted in 2015 by Advanced Viticulture. There are five-plus acres of chardonnay (Mount Eden and Old Wente clones) and 19 acres of pinot noir (Calera, Swan, Mount Eden, Pommard, 38 and 943 Clones). It even comes equipped with state-of-the-art irrigation systems and soil moisture monitoring equipment. Hope you have a viticulture degree (or at least a winemaker friend)!

A gated entry leads into a large automobile court with garages for three cars and space to land a helicopter. The main residence, which isn't too shabby either, sits on the property's highest elevation point overlooking the vineyards and valley. Allowing the views to take center stage, floor-to-ceiling glass walls and doors bring the outside into every single room.

Inside, a reception hall and adjoining powder room lead to a grand room with clerestory windows and high ceilings. If you think this is going to be a party house, you'd be right. There's a 2,000-square-foot media room with a wood-burning fireplace; 4,000 square feet of patio space; a formal dining room large enough to seat 12; and an oversized kitchen with a six-burner Décor gas cooktop, KitchenAid electric double-oven, two Sub Zero refrigerators, two KitchenAid dishwashers, an ice machine, and a Miele glass dishwasher.

When you're exhausted from entertaining, you can find respite in the master suite, which has his and hers toilets (luxury!) as well as a dual vanity and a large soaking tub. A few of the bedrooms also have their own fireplaces.

Sharing an entry courtyard with the home is a one-bedroom, open floor plan guest house with killer views of its own. Good thing too: You'll probably need to Airbnb that sucker in order to pay the bills. There's also the caretaker's salary to think of—the caretaker's two-bedroom, one bath unit sits above the six-stable horse barn.

Did we mention the heated pool and spa?
