Each parcel has been strategically laid out to take advantage of the extraordinary views and the incredible natural terrain.  Most have outstanding vineyard potential, with ideal soils, climate and pest-free environment.  The Lake County Grapegrowers Association has called the vineyard potential and growing conditions something “to die for.”

Prospective buyers at Rim Rock Ranch Vineyard Estates may choose their preference for which kind of property based on the soils and topographical characteristics of each parcel.  The goal is to develop the land to its best potential in keeping with the rural, agricultural nature of Lake County.  To that end, approximately 300 acres, including the vineyard along Rim Rock Ridge is situated at the core of the development.  CC&Rs will assure owners that the natural beauty of the property will be maintained throughout the entire development.

Owners will enjoy the secluded quiet that comes with living at the end of the road, as if no one else is around.  Nowhere else will you find such beautiful, wide-open spaces in California, so close to the famous Napa Valley, at such an affordable price.
