Napa Valley’s Juslyn Vineyards, estate on the market for $35 million

On the heels of the November sale of Napa’s Seven Stones Winery, the home of another cult wine favorite and an adjoining estate in St. Helena are now available for $35 million.

The Juslyn Wines winery and estate come to market as one offering at $35 million or as two $17.5 million parcels.

The parcel at 2900 Spring Mountain Road features a custom-built, 12,000-square-foot primary residence with seven bedrooms, high ceilings, 5,000-bottle wine cellar, tasting room, guest house, 70-foot swimming pool and an outdoor kitchen with pizza oven. It also has 1.81 acres of vines, koi ponds and stone-terraced gardens.

The parcel at 2910 Spring Mountain Road features a prospective 29.78-acre home-site and 4.5 acres of vines. This vineyard estate contains six additional plantable acres and accompanying winery license making it possible to establish a flagship tasting room. The vineyard also has an 800-foot well that can supply 200 gallons of water per minute.

Juslyn Wines has won accolades that include wine scores by Wine Advocate from 91-98 points over 23 vintages.

Owners Perry Butler and his wife, Carolyn — both titled nobles from the United Kingdom — created the vineyards and their hilltop estate and now want to retire and downsize.

Compass’ Nick Muccitelli has the listing along with Aaron Kirman of The Aaron Kirman Group Christie’s and Neyshia Go of Sotheby’s.

“The vineyards were originally planted in the 1860s as part of Caroline Bale’s dowry when she married Charles Krug (oldest winery in Napa),” Muccitelli said in a statement. “It was sold and went dormant sometime between the phylloxera epidemic of the 1900s and prohibition in the 1920s.

“The vineyard returned to its state as a native forest and remained that way for more than 70 years. After planting their estate to a field blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon with small amounts of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot (for color) in 1997, the Butlers achieved their first estate Cabernet release of just 80 cases in 2000.”

The winery listing comes after the sale of Seven Stones Winery — also in St. Helena — for $34 million at the tail end of 2022. Located behind the gates of Meadowood resort, Seven Stones Estate and Winery sits on 45 acres and includes a 6,600- square-foot main residence with an elaborate art collection, pool guest house, barn, workshop, vineyard and the winery. Its original asking price was also $35 million. The buyer was a holding company listed as HSIH NHH INV LLC, which is connected to the Hanwha Group, a South Korean conglomerate. And Wine Country isn’t the only part of Bay Area luxury market seeing movement. San Francisco’s most expensive 2023 listing, 3450 Washington St. in Presidio Heights, went into contract at the end of January for $40 million. Last year, the 93-year-old residence, owned by billionaire cloud computer cofounders and married couple Mark Armenante and Young Sohn, came to market at a $45 million listing price.

The new priciest mansion currently available in the city was recently listed at $35 million. That home at 2830 Pacific Ave. — built more than a century ago in the Georgian Colonial architecture style — features six bedrooms, six bathrooms and two half bathrooms across 9,400 square feet.

Meanwhile on the Peninsula, Joe Lacob, the majority owner and CEO of the Golden State Warriors, has just bought a newly built Woodside home for $40 million in an off-market deal, the Real Deal reports. The estate at 890 Mountain Road is situated on a 3.3-acre parcel and represents a huge price cut since listing in early 2022 for $110 million — the most expensive Bay Area listing at that time.
