Chatom Vineyards and Winery, a California-based wine producer, has placed its entire business, including a winery and 755 acres vineyards, for $6.95m.

Established in 1990, the Chatom Vineyards and Winery has two separate properties – vineyard and winery.

The 245 acre vineyards include a 20 acre farmstead, a 4,000ft² main home with swimming pool, a ranch manager’s home, mobile home, shop, office/garage, two equipment sheds and two barns.

The vineyard has 65 acres planted with vines, among which 9.5 acres are designated for Sauvignon Blanc, 8.5 acres for Chardonnay, 3 acres for Semillon, 12 acres for Cabernet Sauvignon, 8 acres for Merlot, 12 acres for Zinfandel, 5.5 acres for Syrah, 2.5 acres for Brunello Sangiovese and 4 acres for Portuguese varietals.

Located 12 miles away from the vineyards is the 32 acre winery, which houses a tasting/hospitality room, upstairs apartment, a rammed earth wine cellar and covered crush pad.

The winery uses grapes sourced from its own vineyards to produce wines such as 2011 Semillon, 2011 Sauvignon Blanc, 2011 Chardonnay, 2010 Gitano Sangiovese, 2010 Touriga, 2008 Zinfandel, 2010 Cuvee, 2008 Merlot and others.

The winery is being marketed for sale by the Wine Services Group of Cornish & Carey Commercial Newmark Knight Frank.

Cornish & Carey’s Wine Services Group founding member Kevin Foster, who is representing Chatom’s owner Gay Callan with Preston Smith, was quoted by Business Journal as saying that it has got a good and an established brand.

"What we’re looking for is someone with their own energy and ideas who can take it beyond its current state," Foster added.
