French Hilltop Stunner to Make its Debut During Anderson Valley Pinot Noir Fest

Known for its stunning, rugged coastline and dense redwood forests, the lesser-known, yet award-winning wine region of Anderson Valley in Mendocino County has been quietly producing some of the finest wine in 

California for decades. With its cool, coastal climate and mineral-rich soil, the 15-mile-long stretch of rolling hills and vineyards, just 10 miles from the Pacific Coast, produces some particularly delicious Pinots.

Now in its 22nd year, the annual Anderson Valley Pinot Noir Festival brings together more than 50 local producers in the Anderson Valley for a weekend dedicated to sipping and savoring the beloved, light-bodied varietal. Guests are invited to enjoy food and wine pairings by top local chefs, live music, educational seminars, winemaking dinners and winery open houses, all set amidst the beauty of Anderson Valley’s vineyards and towering redwood trees.

Perfectly positioned in the heart of the Anderson Valley “tasting” corridor along Highway 128, and poised to make its debut on Sunday’s “winery open 

house day,” is 16165 Dear Meadows Road. Represented by The Agency’s Mark Stevens, the hilltop beauty is situated on more than 200 acres overlooking the Anderson Valley. Just moments from the quaint town of Boonville—home to some of the best Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wineries in California—the luxe, gated French villa showcases 2,585 square feet of living space plus a 1,100-square-foot guest home and detached three-car auto gallery. Replete with 20-40 plantable acres, the beautiful property brings a taste of the French countryside to Northern California. If you’re in the Anderson Valley area—or looking to make the journey for Pinot fest—be sure to stop by for a visit Sunday, May 19th from 1pm to 4pm.
