INWOOD VALLEY, Calif., Aug. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Concierge Auctions, a luxury real estate auction firm serving high-net-worth individuals worldwide, today announced the September 25th auction of Anselmo Vineyards and Seven Hills Ranch, a 2,400+ acre western wonderland of beauty, award-winning wines, and flexible use opportunity as an agricultural ranch, vineyard and winery, or family homestead. The auction will be conducted in cooperation with Donald Van de Mark of Sotheby's International Realty. Anselmo Vineyards has never before been offered for sale and will sell to the highest bidder without reserve.
California's history is etched across every facet of Anselmo Vineyards and Seven Hills Ranch. The property features 7 individual residences, including original c.1900 buildings, which have recently been enhanced by multi-million dollar infrastructure investments.
With no traceable salt, calcite or mineral build up found in 150 years, Anselmo Vineyards produces high quality grapes and some of the most spectacular wine in Northern California -- 2,000-2,500 cases annually. And the vineyard's history is as rich and storied as the wines it produces. The first public winery of the Inwood Valley appellation, Anselmo Vineyards sources the water for its winemaking operations through a deeded water right signed by President William McKinley.
"The seller has invested close to $30 million into this classic California ranch. And no amount of money conveys the quality and opportunity that Seven Hills Land & Cattle Company with Anselmo Vineyards offers," said Van de Mark. "The land is stunning, the infrastructure first class and the deeded water rights, rare. Furthermore, Redding and surrounding areas are exploding with popularity among wine lovers!'"
In addition to its winemaking capabilities, Anselmo Vineyards features 267+ irrigated acres of pastures and gardens that are capable of feeding 200 heads of cattle year round and baling over 200 tons of hay. The ranch also produces small quantities of lamb, wool, lavender, honey, fruits and vegetables.
While Anselmo Vineyards' lush agricultural opportunities allow its owner to make hay while the sun shines, its entertainment offerings enable its guests to make hay of another sort. On-site activities such as fly fishing, a 12-station sporting clays course, upland game bird hunting, and horseback riding inspire smiles, laughter, and appetites that only Anselmo Vineyards' pasture-to-plate dining can satisfy.
"Currently operating as a vineyard, winery, restaurant, and agribusiness, Anselmo Vineyards can serve as a wonderful investment opportunity for the entrepreneurial vintner, or as an expansive family compound for the legacy-minded buyer," said Laura Brady, Founder and President of Concierge Auctions. "No property offers more opportunities for usage than Anselmo Vineyards, and no matter how the next owner decides to operate this remarkable property, one thing is for sure – it will be the envy of vineyard owners everywhere."
For the owner on the move, Anselmo Vineyards includes a private helipad and grass airstrip so that travel to and from the property can be part of the adventure. For those who would prefer a short drive through some of Northern California's most breathtaking scenery, the property is 30 minutes from downtown Redding.
"This ranch is out of this world; it has an incredible power that enables people to leave their troubles behind," said current owner Reverge Anselmo. "People see the marvels and delights of the vineyard, the cattle, the green swaths, and the waters flowing, and that which is important in life becomes abundantly clear. All one can really say is, 'This is beautiful.'"
The auction of Anselmo Vineyards, located at 28740 Inwood Road in Shingletown, California, will be held live on September 25th. A 2.5% commission is offered to the buyer's representing broker. The property is open daily from 1-4pm and by appointment. See Auction Terms and Conditions for full details. For more information, call (212) 257-5239.
