16000 Coleman Valley, Occidental
81 Acres | Sold July, 2013 | Buyer Representation
Driving west at 1000 feet elevation on Coleman Valley Road west of Occidental, one can't miss the large ridge top pasture fronting the road with grand views over the Russian River Valley to Mt. St. Helena. The property is arguably the best and last great expansive parcel along the ridge tops of Freestone-Occidental -- and ideal locale of growing the finest Pinot Noir.
Pearl Morissette Wines recognized this, and purchased the property in July 2013 to make it the latest addition to their portfolio of Sonoma Coast vineyard sites focusing on world-class Pinot Noir. Winemaker Francois Morissette visualizes planting multiple small vineyard blocks, each with their own unique charecter given the multiple orientations and topography among the sprawling 81-acre ridge top.
