Property description

Acres of tranquil privacy with a large vineyard of world class Cabernet Sauvignon.

Italian Riviera Villa in the heart of the California wine country. Perched atop it’s own small mountain, the magnificent Villa Montebella commands spectacular wine country views of two majestic valleys and the San Francisco Bay. Come and experience the bounty of Sonoma County with our Sonoma Wine Discovery Program. Featuring tours of our vineyards and wine cave, tasting of our wine and other wines of our neighboring wineries. Free and discounted tasting passes, expanded tours and special tastings at several of our local wineries are included. We also offer a complete viticulture seminar and the ability to work our vineyards for a further understanding of what makes Sonoma County the best wine region to visit in the world.

The long private drive winds upward through a canopy of live oaks until the stunning Villa bursts into view surrounded first by a necklace of ten acres of terraced world class Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards then manicured lawns, exotic plants and beautiful gardens, highlighted by the sights and sounds of dozens of soaring palms gently swaying with the breeze. The only thing missing from this Italian inspired Villa is the Mediterranean Sea!

The secluded property is surrounded by hundreds of acres of oaks and madrone trees with views of numerous vineyards in all directions. Enjoy your privacy in this oasis of tranquility where not even a single car can be heard in the distance and yet the entrance is just a mile away from world class dining and wineries. The unparalleled location is just the beginning. The estate features a massive seven thousand square foot wine cave filled with exotic art and complete with a game room with championship shuffleboard table, ping pong, air hockey and foosball. Lean up to the cave’s rustic wine barrel bar for a glass of our exquisite Cabernet Sauvignon before sitting down for dinner at the cave’s dining tables.

The prestigious main house features twenty foot high massive beamed ceilings with large skylights and a very large and lavish living room with wood burning fire place. There is a formal dining room, library and media room, a large master suite with an incredible tiled shower room with four shower heads fit for a sultan and two other bedrooms with fantastic views. The recently renovated enormous commercial grade kitchen features dual Viking ranges, three sinks, dual dishwashers, large Sub-Zero refrigerator and industrial sized outdoor gas grill. There is seating for twelve around a central island plus two window benches and enough production capability to operate a fairly large restaurant. Perfect for the most discriminating gourmet cook in your group or simply pick from our list of renowned local chefs on call* to come and prepare a delectable meal on site. The main house also features a spa facility with huge outdoor ten person sunken hot tub, steam and dry sauna rooms, lounge area where you can enjoy a massage, body treatment or any selection from our full spa menu*. Then stroll over to the exquisitely tiled forty-five foot outdoor *heated saltwater pool and lounging area and enjoy a relaxing swim with wonderful music provided by the multi-zone Sonos system that operates throughout most of the property.

All rooms have music systems, Wi-Fi and Satellite television. There is a specially designed and acoustically superior THX twelve plus person theater room complete with Xbox 360 + Kinect, hundreds of movies on DVD and thousands available on demand. There is also a lobby/office area and a well appointed spacious gym with a personal trainer* and Yoga instructors* available. Have the match of your life on our freshly renovated lighted tennis court with views of the San Francisco Bay. If that’s not enough activity how about basketball, an exquisite bocce ball court, grass volley ball or badminton and croquet!

We do not allow weddings of any size or large events at Villa Montebella.
