Grass Valley Vineyard

From SWGGA Member, Scott Melamed:

I own a 1/3-acre vineyard (200 vines with NID water), just south of Grass Valley proper, off McCourtney in Mustang Valley. There are three varieties of red grapes for wine making: Zinfandel, Barbera and Cabernet Sauvignon. The vines are going into their 8th year and are good producers. I don’t have the time to invest in becoming a decent wine maker but it would be great if someone that is such an expert took advantage of the grapes.

I’m looking for someone who would like to take care of the vineyard in exchange for the entire harvest. I have everything needed to take proper care of the vineyard. There would be no monetary investment on your part, just time and experience. I can help with some of the tasks, but I would leave it to you to make decisions and do most of the upkeep.

If interested, please give me a call: Scott – 805-415-3721 or
