Robin Williams Estate Sold their Napa Valley Vineyard House "Villa Sorriso"

This ad is marked as Sold


Sold for $18.1 million to French winemakers Alfred Tesseron and his niece Melanie Tesseron

The Tesserons own and operate Château Pontet-Canet, a vineyard and winery in the Bordeaux region of France. With today’s trend of natural wine growing, the family turned their French vineyard into an organic operation using biodynamics from the 1920’s agricultural lectures of Rudolf Steiner. This more traditional method of wine making includes working the vines with horses instead of tractors and controlling pests without chemicals. With such huge success in France, it is likely they will go the same route with Villa Sorriso.

Villa Sorriso sits majestically atop the Mayacama Mountains between Napa and Sonoma Valleys. Portuguese limestone envelopes close to twenty thousand square feet of luxurious living space, including five bedrooms, an oak-paneled library, state of the art home theater, family room, elevator, safe rooms, climate-controlled cellars for art as well as wine, and of course your very own tower and bridge. With summer lasting six months in wine country, you'll be grateful for the sixty-five foot infinity-edge swimming pool. Surrounded by antique European stone decking, a lawn and multi-tiered sculpture garden, this is an area that promises legendary outdoor events.

Italianate and elegant, this is nonetheless, a true country estate because of the beauty and bounty of the land. Covering approximately six hundred and fifty-three acres in six parcels that also border a state park, this is a wild expanse with towering trees, rushing winter creeks and vast views. This is a pristine property within eighty minutes of the Golden Gate Bridge – a wilderness so convenient, yet so wild and haunting, that it summons even the softest city dweller.

There are trails to blaze and ridges to ride, picnic spots to discover and lookout points to climb. You can fish in your spring-fed pond and round up your own cattle. And because this land borders Sugarloaf Ridge State Park, there are thousands more acres to explore. You could also have a herd of mustangs, or just a few purebreds. With a seven-stall horse barn, you'll always have your own mount.

The vineyard, ranch and house are cared for by an on-site manager, so that all you have to do is dwell in your delightful domain.
