www.QuixoteNapaValley.com This is a one-of-a-kind, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own Napa Valley's finest terroir in one of the valley's most prestigious winegrowing areas. Quixote Winery: A crown jewel in Napa Valley’s fabled Stags Leap District.
The rich, storied terroir of this 42 acre wine estate is, if anything, more magnificent than its sweeping pastoral views and spectacular setting. Located in the heart of the Stags Leap District appellation - made famous worldwide for its role in the 1976 “Judgment of Paris,” this property was originally a part of the historic Stags’ Leap Winery and borders the vineyards that produce Shafer’s highly acclaimed Hillside Select Cabernet Sauvignon. Sharing the same great dirt as its two illustrious neighbors, and with about 29 acres planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc, the ultimate possibilities for producing rarified wine are intoxicating.
Friedensreich Hundertwasser, the playful, world-famous Austrian artist, designed the estate’s joyous, colorful 8,000 sq. ft. winery, which is permitted for 20,000 gallons. The stylish tone of the estate is set by the long, tree-lined allée that leads to the heart of the property. Guests approaching the winery are greeted by the expansive branches of old oaks, a walkway through wild grasses, and the sight of a gold, onion dome topping the winery and intended to elevate man’s sense of himself.
The estate home, designed by one of America’s foremost architects and Napa local Howard Backen, reveals itself slowly and is entered by way of descending stone steps through lilies and native grasses and ultimately through a cedar Shoji door. Upon entering, the sensation is that you have arrived in a particularly inviting, modern, spacious, and personal Japanese style home that floats on and looks out over a vast, natural garden pond. The site of the residence is at once serene and spectacular, cantilevered slightly over the 49 acre-foot pond, and at the foot of the iconic, towering Stags Leap palisade.
This property has many things to offer, including two singular structures, the winery and the residence, and an unrivaled location with a private lake and views of the valley and Stags Leap’s iconic rock cliffs. Most unique, however, is the opportunity to purchase 29 acres of prime vineyard at the very heart of one of Napa’s most esteemed and revered wine growing sites.
