Napa Valley Estate and Winery Business Opportunity. Have It All!

The Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley AVA is an American Viticultural Area located at the southern half of the valley floor between downtown Napa and the city of Yountville.

Big Ranch Road is between Highway 29 and the Silverado Trail.

4042 Big Ranch Road presents a rare opportunity to own a prestigious winery on the doorstep of downtown Napa. This stunning 21+ acre Napa Valley Estate controls one of the closest vested winery licenses to downtown Napa and is within a 10 minute drive of over 70% of the Napa Valley's hotel rooms.

Stan and Joan Boyd are looking for a partner to build the entitled winery for their thriving Napa wine business.

The long private driveway heads East from Big Ranch Road through vineyards.

The manicured vineyard gives way to beautiful trees that surround the compound that begins with the barn, guest house, and entitled winery site. The trees provide shade to potential wine club visitors and open to broad vistas of Napa Valley and its surrounding hillsides.

Built in 2004, the home was carefully designed to rest above the vineyards. An incredible veranda wraps the home and opens to the gardens.

Enter into the home onto the hardwood floor and feel the volume of the 20' vaulted ceilings.

The living room with a wood burning fireplace looks north up the valley.

The grand dining room with coffered ceiling connects with the outside.

From the dining room or through the Butler's pantry step into the warm and inviting gourmet kitchen with a center island and pizza oven.

The mudroom, pantry and laundry room lead to the back door.

A large bedroom suite with a den is on the south side of the home.

Back in the entry hall, a powder room completes the ground floor.

Open stairs bring you to the guest bedroom suite and double doors open to the primary bedroom suite with a balcony looking out toward the Napa River and Stagecoach canyon.

The lawns and gardens surrounding the home are spectacular with ample room to provide for everything from intimate gatherings to music or theatre performances.

The water tower garage and guest suite is on the south end of the great lawn.

The eastern property line is 470' on the Napa River and includes this beautiful grotto on the Napa River. A site that could be well served by glamping experiences or other events.

Over 14 acres are planted with seven different varietals of premier Oak Knoll district fruit .

The guest house is the original home on the property and includes two bedrooms and two bathrooms.

The property includes a Winery Use permit for a new 4200 square foot winery with a 30,000 gallon winery permit.

The Estate and Winery opportunity is unique and rare. The full winery and culinary license represents the last fully vested winery license issued of this scale, close to downtown Napa.  

Since the license was issued three years ago, current property wine sales have skyrocketed, while the volume produced is 30% of what the license permits!  

The site permit is approved and the parking and building pads are in place. You can envision your dream Winery with Production and Hospitality with panoramic vineyard views in every direction. Hire your architect and make it your reality. The existing inventory of top quality wine in bottle and barrel, worth $3,000,000+, is not included but could be available to immediately develop Your brand.
