Have you ever dreamed of becoming a winemaker? Whether it’s a postcard-perfect Italian-style estate overlooking the Pacific Ocean or a Paso Robles 83-acres winery with over 16 grape varietals, these five California vineyards estates will stop you in your tracks.
1 of 5 | Italian Style Montecito Estate
Vineyards boasting a panoramic ocean view with an exclusive Montecito address are few and far between. Ones that can claim views of Channel Island, Santa Barbara Harbor and the Santa Barbara mountains are even rarer. This Italian Villa-style estate is one of them. Sitting on a ridge 1,200 feet above sea level with five acres of Grenache and Pinot grapes, it is the very embodiment of vineyard majesty.

2 of 5 | St. Helena Modern Estate
Organic. Minimalist. Astonishing. The Whitehall Estate is all of these things - a singular achievement of elemental architecture designed by a renowned team of award-winning architects and builders. It set a new standard for modern homes in the Napa Valley. Passersby drive up to the private gates just to get a glimpse of the estate beyond the long driveway, looking out upon 14 acres of Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. Inside, 6,500-square feet of generously appointed rooms leave plenty of space for entertaining guests in the sun-lit hills.

4 of 5 | Santa Ynez Valley Ranch
Famous for its vineyards and horse ranches - not to mention its unforgettable beauty - Santa Ynez Valley is home to the stunning 100+ acre Rancho Rio Robles, an estate set in an ideal location between the Santa Ynez River and the coastal mountain range, with panoramic views of both. An elegantly crafted 8,000-square foot residence complete with home theater at the center of the property is truly impressive, but it is the miraculous land and the water which make the ranch so desirable.
