Villa Sorriso sits majestically atop the Mayacamas Mountains between Napa and Sonoma Valleys at the end of a quiet country lane offering abundant privacy yet is easily accessible with close proximity to Yountville, a brief helicopter ride from Napa’s private airport and only 90 minutes from San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge.
The ranch borders Sugarloaf Ridge State Park, allowing access to thousands of adjoining acres. In addition, there are 36 solar panels currently generating approximately $22,000 of energy back to grid with an opportunity to establish a tax deductible conservation easement with the Napa Land Trust.

The crown jewel of Napa Valley with larger-than-life vistas of Mt St. John, the Mayacamas foothills and the Vaca Mountains beyond, boasts 100+ fruit bearing olive trees and the 18.4 acre Pymrae vineyard. The vineyard has a premium price grape contract through 2015 with the option to renew and produces Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon with a 2014 projected revenue of $414,500.
Pymrae, planted in the 1990s is mature enough to showcase all of the Mt. Veeder appellation’s unique complexity. Its diverse topography and elevation, which ranges from about 1200 to 1800 feet, create many different vineyard microclimates with varying exposures to sun, wind and fog. The vineyard has a rich history with Robert Craig Winery who consulted in the original planting and who continues to contract fruit for its Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon label. This wine has garnered ratings up to 96 points and retails for $70 a bottle. The property offers the opportunity for vineyard expansion, with approximately 19 additional acres that are at or under 30% slope.
Villa Sorriso is offered at $25,900,000.
