A posh St. Helena estate with a vineyard and winery has sold for $34 million, just $1 million below what it listed for before the pandemic.

The property, one of the most expensive listings in Wine Country, sits behind the gates of Meadowood resort.

The buyer is “a multinational corporation with a significant U.S. presence,” said Compass (NYSE: COMP) broker Damian Archbold, who listed the site with Steve Mavromihalis.

Archbold said the acquisition will form part of a newly established entity for its wine business.

Seven Stones is the smallest boutique permitted winery in Napa Valley, and the award-winning operation is seeking to double the size of its vineyard. Aaron Pott is its celebrity wine maker who consults with the winery.

The property encompasses several other residences and structures, including:

  • A poolside guesthouse with a living room, fireplace, two bedrooms, a two-car garage and outdoor kitchen;
  • A three-level “Tower House” with a living room, one bedroom and an office/den;
  • A one-bedroom, 1,300-square-foot property manager’s cottage with living and dining rooms and a landscaped backyard with a hot tub;
  • A woodworking studio with an office; and
  • A 900-square-foot barn.The property also includes a 35-kilowatt solar panel system, a whole-estate generator and two wells with filtration and distribution systems.

It was named for the sculpture that welcomes guests upon arrival, Seven Stones, and numerous other sculptures are also displayed throughout the grounds. In addition to the vineyards, the property features an olive tree grove, fruit trees, vegetable garden and cutting garden. The outdoor grounds also feature several terraces, an outdoor kitchen, heated pool, spa and a bocce ball court.

“This estate is a one in a million property and there is absolutely nothing in Napa Valley that resembles it, as the views are enough to stop your heart,” seller Ronald Wornick said in a statement when the house first listed in 2019 for $35 million. “We find ourselves extremely lucky to have lived here and experience all the wonder that the property provides, however, we are ready to pass along this extraordinary lifestyle to someone else.”
