Moraga is a historic award-winning winery in Bel Air, Los Angeles, and the first one to be bonded in the city after the end of the Prohibition period. This remarkable estate is now on the market together with its Mediterranean style mansion, a guest house, a separate office building of 4,400 square feet of space, and the winery itself (2,300 square feet of space).
The estate used to be a small horse ranch back in the 1930s, built and owned by Victor Fleming, the famous Hollywood director. It was only in 1959 that Northrup CEO Tom Jones bought the surrounding 13 acres of land together with his wife, and found out that the soil and the microclimate of the area was very similar to that of the Bordeaux region in France. Thus the idea to transform the property into a vineyard.
With a lot of enthusiasm, the project started with approximately 2,200 vines per acre, and the first wine was produced in 1989. Now the estate needs a new owner who is ready to continue this rich history of success. Of course, they will also have the privilege of enjoying life in a 7,500 square foot mansion with 3 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, and plenty of high-end amenities.
