Thirsty for some zinfandel? David Letterman’s former producer has got the hookup.

The Agua Dulce Winery, one of the largest in Los Angeles County, is now on the market for $12.8 million. The listing agents are Dario Svidler and Robert Morton of Partners Trust, the latter of whom was an Emmy-winning talkshow producer in his former Hollywood career, the Hollywood Reporter reported.

The property, located 35 miles northeast of the city of L.A., includes an 80-acre vineyard, 5,000-square-foot Colonial-style home, winemaking facilities that produce 10 types of wines, a tasting room, mountain vistas and an animal rescue ranch.

It spans a total of 90 acres. The residence, including a separate caretaker’s quarters, has five bedrooms.

The seller, businessman Barry Goldfarb, told the Reporter he’s getting rid of the property because it’s simply time to move on.

“I am 70 years old, and I have been in the wine business for 25 years,” he said. “I am trying to take it easy and travel more.”

Wineries and vineyards are now coveted properties for Hollywood bigwigs, but this one is special because of its proximity to the industry, according to Morton.

“A lot of people buy in Napa, Sonoma, and Santa Barbara, but this is just so much closer,” he said. [THR]Cathaleen Chen
