Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We purchased this property nine years ago,renaming it Black Knight Vineyards. Our last residence was in Pennsylvania. The entire family felt it was time to perhaps create something for the family. Our daughters (3) and I required that it be something that my husband was passionate about. Mitch being a a chemical engineer with an MBA, and a business turnaround specialist had many good opportunities to seek out. We had lived all over the world, even on a sailboat tasting excellent wine along the way. It seemed the obvious choice for our new business to be in wine since Mitch been a wine enthusiast for his entire life. We had a family meeting and agreed that we were all in for the adventure in Wine but with no snow. California here we come. The first year was more work than anyone expected. With 60 acres of land, 25 acres of grapes, two houses, two huge barns and a couple small barns, we had more to do than we could get to. One of our top priorities was to reinvent the house on one of the secluded peaks. It was redesigned right from the beginning as a vacation rental. We wanted this place to be a representation of our life. It is filled with furniture and art collected all over the US and the World. It is so peaceful here that it just called out for a spa. We especially like the spa perched on the top of the hill overlooking the valley to the west. Comfort was also high on our list – We think you will agree that it has turned out great and is unique. DeAnne Black

Why the Owner Chose Santa Rosa, CA, USA:
From the start we were interested in some type of vacation rental as part of the business. About half of the properties we considered had potential for a vacation rental. Our bigger decision was were to start with the wine business. It is a complex business and very capital intensive. We choice to start with grapes since great wine must start with great fruit. Sonoma is one of the top wine regions in the world. It is also one of the most beautiful locations in the US. We are privileged to have one of the best views around and we can share this with you. The bonus of this location is that while we have a peaceful, rural vineyard, we are very centrally located with easy access to Santa Rosa, Rohnert Park and ALL the wine areas. It really is the best of all worlds.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
As our guest you are welcome, and encouraged, to explore the vineyards. Walk, run, picnic or bike, it is a new vista on each of the three peaks on the property. Many guest are looking forward to sampling the wine region and the wines of Sonoma a second to none. Our central location is excellent for multiple day trips in different directions, all easy to get to. Napa is 30 mins awasy and San Francisco is 45 mins away and a direct route over the Golden Gate Bridge.
