The Proprietors

Catherine and Dave live full-time on this carefully chosen, wine country property. The main house is an Arts & Crafts styled, timber-framed hybrid, "green-rated home" which they finished building together in 2010.

They purchased the land at 1 Mound, which originally contained a charming but very old cottage, in 2002. Dave told Catherine at the time that if they could live through building a home together and were still speaking, they should get married. And they did both!

The Jefferson's love living in Sonoma County, have a strong local connection, are active in Rotary, and enjoy wonderful neighbors. They love meeting new people, traveling, sailing and taking many road-trip adventures together in their RV (as you can see from the "Photo Galleries" page on this site). Catherine is mostly retired from the rural real estate business and is a large-scale home winemaker. Her brand is "Moylan Rouge," playing off her maiden name, Moylan. Dave is in the vineyard and winery investment business and "trying" to retire, just a little.... They love to go out for great local foods, drink wine, sail, garden, travel, and entertain. They have a sweet cat named Tule, an Australian Shephard named Cedar, and a flock of chickens to keep them company.
