Vineyard Station Ranch History
Vineyard Station Ranch celebrates the ranch's history as one of the region's first resorts. Know as 'Vineyard Villa' the resort was established by the French Rouquie family in the late 1800's. 'Le Masion' takes its name from its French heritage. Century old olive trees and an enormous cork oak planted by the Rouquies grace this land, where views of the Sonoma and Mayacamas mountain ranges over lush, mature vineyards from Le Maison are unobstructed. Sunrises and sunsets are breathtaking.
