CHERIMOYA & AVOCADO ORCHARD
Approximately 1,600 fully mature Cherimoya trees • Avocado trees
Vineyard with approximately 500 vines.
Primoya's south, ocean facing hillsides create the ideal location for the Cherimoya to thrive. A mature Cherimoya tree is briefly deciduous and will reach approximately 18 feet high. The fruit is a tropical explosion that is deliciously unique. The heart shaped fruit can be described as a cross between a pineapple, banana and pear. Best ripened at room temperature, but be careful the Cherimoya can easily become over-ripe similar to an avocado. The perfect ripeness yields to gentle pressure. Simply cut lengthwise and enjoy your delectable fruit.
VINEYARD & WINE GROTTO
500 +/- Vines • Pinot Noir & Chardonnay • Professionally Managed by Bruce Kohler
Yielding 400-600 +/- Bottles of Wine Annually
Newly Constructed in 2014 • 755 +/- Sq. Ft.
1,500 Wine Bottle Capacity • Dining Space and Powder Room
Still a working pesticide-free farm, the Primoya vineyard yields approximately 400-600 bottles of wine each year. While there is a small on-property wine making facility, the current owners have the grapes transported to a local crush facility where UC Davis trained Shaun Fraun creates their preferred wine style.
HISTORY OF THE ESTATE
Dame Judith Anderson, one of the "First Ladies of American Theatre" (her portrait hangs in the Lobero Theatre), purchased Rancho Verde in 1949. At the time it was a full 48 acres. Anderson cut a road to the highest point on the estate (approximately 900' above sea level) and built her dream Palladian-style villa. Sketches of the estate can be found in the UCSB's Special Archive and have been featured in Montecito Magazine. Ms. Anderson, who died in 1992, was most proud of two things: Rancho Verde and the Judith Anderson Theatre on 42nd street which remains her theatrical legacy. Following Ms. Anderson's time at Rancho Verde, it became home to author Harvey Wheeler. Mr. Wheeler is best known for his novel Fail-Safe which later became a movie starring Henry Fonda.
