Tired of the cold SF fog day after day after day?  Or do you need a mid winter break from the frigid climes of the far north or east?  


We've got just what the doctor ordered.  A vacation at our sun drenched 23 acre citrus ranch complete with Spanish rancho home, extensive exotic plant botanical garden, and full size baseball field of dreams set in the gorgeous Lake Berryessa Foothills just outside the charming town of Winters and only 20 miles east of the world famous Napa Valley Viticultural Region.  This is our nursery's inland hot growing ground located just 55 miles north east of Downtown San Francisco, and just a little over an hour away by car.  


We grow many of our nursery palms here as well as operate our Alta Crest Fruit Company commercial Citrus Ranch with 110 Navel orange trees, 30 Tangelo Honey Bell trees, 40 Valencia orange trees, various grapefruit, lemon and lime and a young crop of various type avocado trees. Because of its unique and blessed magical microclimate set on the backside rainshadow of the Napa Mountains, the climate is warm and dry Spring through Fall when SF is packed with refrigerator fog while winter, in Winters, is milder than most all climates anywhere near the bay.

The Glory Hole!

At the top of the Berryessa Dam is the 72' diameter overflow hole known as "The Glory Hole." The Glory hole starts out at 72' across, drops 200' straight down, and narrows to a 28' wide diameter tunnel that exits at the bottom of the dam. Although it is a spectacular site to see it in operation on wet years from the safety of shore, needless to say, please don't swim near this hole. And yes, it did suck someone through it once, and no, they did not live to to tell about it. See link below.
