Napa Valley could soon see the sale of another winery. A private 42-acre site in St. Helena, consisting of two parcels that is also the home of Juslyn Vineyards, has been listed on the market for a total $35 million, according to marketing information from the Aaron Kirman Group, which has the listing. Each of the two parcels is listed for $17.5 million.
The vineyard estate is located on Spring Mountain Road and overlooks Napa Valley, according to the listing information. Juslyn Vineyards was founded in 1997 and is owned by Perry and Carolyn Butler. According to industry reports, the couple previously attempted to sell the estate in 2017 with an asking price of $33 million.
The parcel at 2900 Spring Mountain Road features a custom-built, 12,000 square foot primary residence with a 5,000 bottle wine cellar, tasting room and guest house, according to the current listing. The site also includes an 80-foot swimming pool and an outdoor kitchen with a pizza oven as well as 1.81 acres of vines, koi ponds and stone-terraced gardens.
The parcel at 2910 Spring Mountain Road includes a prospective 2.25-acre home site and 4.5 acres of vines. This estate contains six additional plantable acres and accompanying winery license.
