with approximately 150 fitting the description for highly suited to
winegrape production: The upper elevation is 720’ sloping primarily

Conservation Service as Peavine. Soil scientists have determined that this
soil was mislabeled at this elevation range and is actually Jory, the
primary volcanic soil on the Dundee Hill. It is described as a dark
reddish clay loam or silty clay loam over basalt at more than 40 inches.
Available water capacity is 7-11 inches. This soil is widely grown upon by
many successful vineyards.
There are no improvements on the property. A single homesite
approval is available by virtue of the size and zoning of the property.
Currently, the land is in timber, the rights to which the seller would

seller will then begin clearing the property for winegrapes. The price
will change at that point to reflect the cost of clearing.

Commssioners on Feb. 6, 2008.
