Opportunity for winery/agribusiness, family compound, and/or sub-division (potential for 5 lots). Become the owner of the oldest farm winery in Albemarle County, Virginia situated in the famous Monticello AVA. Wine Enthusiast magazine named Charlottesville and Monticello AVA as the Best Wine Region of the Year! Burnley Vineyards wines are produced exclusively from their 22-acre vineyard planted in 1977 and have been carefully cared for ever since by the owners. This winery once boasted high revenue growth, but over time, the owners have slowed down and now, want to retire. The property has beautiful views of the Blue Ridge Mountain and Southwest Mountains and is a short distance from Washington, D.C, Northern VA, and Maryland. The owners have set up a perfect foundation for the next owner to build upon. The offering consists of three parcels spanning over 26 acres of vineyards, rolling hills, woodlands, and open land. This property is unique as there are three homes situated throughout this pretty landscape. The owner’s house (1932 sf) is a three-story home with three bedrooms and three bathrooms, fireplace, nice large deck, and conveniently situated in the woodlands near the winery. The second family home (2636 sf) is a sprawling one-story ranch with three bedrooms, three bathrooms, two fireplaces, a large deck with gazebo, and nice gardens. The third home is a quaint two-story guest house (775 sf) with two loft style bedrooms, one bathroom, large utility/laundry room, deck, and has been newly updated both inside and outside. The 26 acres are tucked away from the road providing guests with a very serene and relaxing environment. The winery building (4800 sf) contains the tasting room, office, small kitchen, and bonus room on the main floor and the production space is housed on the floor below making it very inclusive of all winery activities. There is a 40’x60’ warehouse space that houses the wine and extra equipment as needed. It has adequate heating and cooling and can be used for additional workspace when needed. The 22-acre meticulously cared for vineyard consists of Vidal Blanc, Riesling, Barbera, Chambourcin, Norton, and Cabernet Sauvignon and yields about 2 tons per acre resulting in about 2000 cases per year. The production facility has a capacity for 6000-7000 cases per year with adequate storage capacity. This winery sits very close to other Monticello AVA wineries including the famous Barboursville Winery and Chestnut Oak Winery making this a desirable winery stop for guests who are wine tasting for the day or visiting the area for the weekend There is so much income potential with having three homes on site to rent out for weddings, corporate retreats, family gatherings, and for guests who want to enjoy the scenery for a weekend. Its prime location near Charlottesville is a destination dream! Bring new life into Albemarle’s oldest farm winery by revamping the wine offerings, increasing production, renting out the homes, starting a wine club, having weddings on site, and more. The potential is endless with new ownership! Do not miss the chance to become part of Wine Enthusiast’s Wine Region of the Year.
