This turnkey property is a rare jewel as is or can easily be reconfigured to many alternative uses.  This special property is one to see!


Most recently, the current owners have produced both wine and olive oil under the Sebright Cellars brand...

Sebright Cellars Reserve Cabernet was planted in volcanic soil which provided excellent drainage and yielded intensely flavored fruit. The last vintage received a 96 point rating. The Virgin Calistoga Olive Oil comes straight from the Garnett Creek Farm property.  It is pressed only once at a local olive mill, filtered and bottled. This lovely blend of Spanish varietals tastes of Rich, Grassy, Bitter Greens with a light hint of Pepper.

Features

Grant Street is a historic wine country compound. The property was originally part of the McPherson Ranch which was created under the Humana Spanish land grant. John McPherson purchased the property in 1878 and built the farmhouse and water tower in 1881. The house was one of the first in Napa Valley. There have only been five owners over the last 142 years. In 1883, the ranch was sold to John McFarling. The Turner family owned the ranch from 1900 to 1973 when it was purchased by the Kleffners, who sold the property to the current owner who modernized the property and grounds.
