The Ranch Almaden

The Ranch Almaden is an exclusive, private estate, where old-world Italian design meets modern elegance. The property includes walking paths, 4+ acres of vineyards (producing 8-10 tons of Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, and Sauvignon Blanc grapes annually), and “The Barn” for indoor/outdoor event settings

The Ranch Almaden (formerly known as The Hero Ranch) was created by its founder to bring a slice of European luxury vacation, food and wine to Silicon Valley.  As our guests often comment – “There is absolutely nothing like this in Silicon Valley.”

Our very private, gated 5 acre estate and vineyard includes a 10,000+ square foot Tuscan home, 4 acres of vineyards (private label Cabernet, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc), an oversized pool, hot tub, waterfall and outdoor kitchen, Bocce Ball courts, firepits, and a separate indoor/outdoor social gathering venue which friends and family commonly refer to as “The Barn.”   The main property features 5 oversized bedrooms, a 20+ person movie theater, as well as formal and informal living rooms and dining rooms.  For those requiring extra space, subject to availability, we can also arrange living quarters at the private “wedding suite” located on-site.

Peacefully set along the Almaden hills and neighboring a 50 acre horse property, we are minutes from both the Calero Trails (for walking, hiking and biking enthusiasts) and Cinnabar Golf Course (“The Best Golf in Silicon Valley”).  

Only 17 miles from San Jose airport and approximately one hour to either SFO (north) or Monterey/Carmel (southwest), we are centrally located to allow you to visit and see the many diverse places and activities the San Francisco Bay Area has to offer.
