Thanksgiving 2005, I brought three sons to remote Lake County, California to embark upon an entrepreneurial adventure, to nurture an eleven acre parcel of historic farm land to visualize, to create and to invite members to a beautiful destination, to grow olive trees, plant grapes, place diverse fruit trees and utilize biodynamic farming practices.
Pied de Terre, Makiivka Estate, is a private scenic country estate for members from around the world. We excel at promoting the sharing of travels, passions, exceptional experiences focused on wellness, healing, balance, fine art, culinary adventures, music, automobiles, wealth creation, entrepreneurial pursuits, world markets, olive oil, wine making and grape growing. Past events included roundtable discussions with local & international winemakers, wine & culinary pairings with renowned chefs, landscape design transformations, outdoor music celebration festivals and power lunches.
As part of the membership, members delight in sharing the venue, gathering for farm events consisting of wine tastings, food paring seminars, and on site discussions and celebrations of art, design, fashion and music. Members will share in the growing and distribution of olive oil and wine production. The location, Lake County, California called to me “a city girl” as unique and special to create an elegant distinctly country gathering place, Makiivka Estate Farm Reserve. We are not in the financial district, members have the opportunity to relax, explore passions, breathe, celebrate life, enjoy membership gatherings and enjoy our fresh air! No traffic, no noise, what a concept!
