View February 10 – PLACERVILLE, CA: All grape growers, winemakers, wineries and interested parties are invited to participate in a talk with our special speaker David Bolster on “Understanding the Value and Market Conditions of the Vine, Wine, Farm and Ranch” on Wednesday, February 17 at 6:30 pm. Mr. Bolster will provide valuable insights based on his extensive experience, knowledge and lifelong experience in the agricultural industry, combined with nearly 20 years of real estate experience.

About this topic: Understanding and negotiating the flow of many complex variables is essential to making informed and appropriate decisions about buying, selling or investing in agricultural real estate improvements. These variables include: location, site suitability, regulations and zoning, market and industry trends, market potential, and business models.

Topics of discussion include: current market conditions; value factors (location, structural improvements, vineyard characteristics, net income, grape market); appraisers; recent activity in the wine market; and who are the buyers: lifestyle or commercial. Mr. Bolster will also look at future and new investments in El Dorado and Amador counties.
