Yes, you can live on a vineyard — check out these dream homes for sale

What's a cool 10 million, anyway?

When fantasizing about one’s dream house, common players may include a sleek and modern cliff house by the sea or a tropical Hawaiian paradise complete with thatched roof and lazy, sun-bleached hammock. Perhaps a snowy mountain retreat comes to mind, fully stocked with all of the snowboarding gear one could hope for. Some may dream of making their home on an enormous yacht, having the ability to travel the world at a moment’s notice. We’d also wager that high on that list for many of us would be a gorgeously romantic vineyard home nestled between the grapevines. While for many of us, these idyllic homes are but fantasies or ambitious goals, it’s always fun to dip a toe into that fantasy world every now and then. Perusing real estate sites like Redfin and Zillow, clicking through photos of the homes we so crave, imagining how we’d fill the rooms and what our lives would look like in them is indeed a fun way to pass the time.

So if you, like us, share the fantasy of living on a vineyard, horseback riding through dusty rows of delicious grapes, plucking them from the vine and imagining what their wine will taste like, you may want to check out these listings. These vineyard homes are all currently on the market, just waiting for someone’s fantasy to become a reality.

College Station, Texas

Price: $1,250,000


Compared to other houses on this list, this home is an absolute steal. Built-in 1993, this 3,220-square-foot farmhouse-style home features more than 1,2000 square feet of porches alone. Be still, my wannabe Southern heart. The entire property is 10.5 acres, three of which are vineyards dating back to 1998. Sweet tea and a rocking chair are negotiable…probably.

Mariposa, California

Price: $1,500,000

5058 East Whitlock Road, Mariposa, Mariposa County, CA

Located just on the outskirts of Yosemite National Park, this absolutely gorgeous home is located on 43.7 acres and includes three homes, a vineyard, and breathtaking views of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Yosemite and a vineyard? Yes, please.

Ashland, Oregon

Price: $2,100,000

708 Pompadour Dr, Ashland, OR 97520

If you have a soft spot for Oregon wines (as you should), you may be tempted by this custom-built dream home. While the house itself is an absolute stunner, we can’t get over the 6+ irrigated acres, raised garden beds, producing vineyard, fruit trees, chicken coop, and greenhouse. Oregon rain be damned, we’re never going back inside.

Sonoma, California

Price: $9,400,000

19100 old winery road sonoma ca

This California wine country gem is located near the famous region’s many esteemed wine estates and boasts its own two-acre Syrah vineyard. Swoon.

If you’re looking to relocate to one of California’s most charming cities, San Luis Obispo, this 281-acre property could be yours. With 67 acres of lemon groves and 74 acres of vineyards, this expansive property could make all of your wine-making, pie-baking dreams come true.

Classic margarita cocktail with salty rim on wooden table with limes and drink utensils

Tequila is a big player in the rich canon of cocktail culture. The agave spirit serves as the backbone of everything from a classic margarita to a refreshing Paloma. In short, if you have a home bar, it better have a few decent bottles of tequila in the mix to whip up cocktails with tequila.

While there are some great sipping tequilas, much of what's out there tends to do better with some complementary ingredients; that's where these classic tequila cocktails really shine, blending the earthy and spicy punch of tequila with bright-as-the-sun citrus and more.

A cocktail doesn't have to be a complicated thing. In fact, many of the best classic cocktails involve just a few ingredients. These, my friends, are the cocktails you should know how to make, as they're simple to pull off and taste superb.

Maximalist cocktails with as many ingredients as there are stars in the sky are great, but better left to the pros. We like to make the ones that don't require a whole lot of special equipment (outside of a good cocktail shaker) or that take too much of your precious time. These are cocktails that tend to let your favorite spirit shine, whether it's good rye whiskey or a favorite gin.

Everything you ever wanted to know about Pinot Grigio, the perfect sipping wine
Be careful with this one, it's almost too easy to drink.
White wine

If ever there was a perfect sipping wine, Pinot Grigio would have to be it. Bright and crisp, fresh and lively, refreshing and clean, Pinot Grigio is arguably one of the most dangerously easy wines to drink. Also known also as Pinot Gris, depending on where you are in the world, this wine is citrusy and pleasantly acidic with a short finish that won't overpower a dish.

Pinot Grigio's diversity is wonderfully wide. It can become something truly artistic and beautiful or, simply, a blissfully cheerful and pleasant picnic wine. So, if you're looking for a great bottle to pack along on a day trip with a blanket and a wicker basket full of charcuterie, Pinot Grigio is your best bet.
Are Pinot Grigio and Pinot Gris the same wine?
