Monday Morning Millionaire II is Something to Wine About: 14,000 Square Foot North Texas Compound Has an Irish Pub and Chambourcin Grape Vineyard!!!
A home with an active producing vineyard in North Texas? You bet your chardonnay! I just got in a few hours ago from the Peninsula of northern California where we spent some time near Saratoga Springs at a shooting range. Yes, Virgina, people do own guns in California. Along the winding mountain road we saw numerous, charming little winery estates tucked into the hillside. Then I come home to find out all I have to do is head north a few miles from Dallas to Sherman to find a 44 acre estate with picturesque horizon views and a bountiful 15-acre vineyard of Chambourcin grapes: Angel Ridge Manor at 5312 State Highway 11. The winery produced 9 tons of grapes in 2011.
Yes, Virginia, there are vineyards in North Texas!
I drove out to Fort Worth less than 24 hours after getting in from cool northern California to talk real estate with Jane McGarry over at KXAS Channel 5′s NonStop Nightly. The temp was 110 degrees — wish the real estate market could be that hot!
