West Bend Vineyards & Winery
This dynamic market area has a population of about 600,000 people with high median incomes, a robust and growing job market, and folks with discretionary income that are ready to spend on quality wine and related special events such as weddings, corporate gatherings, fund-raisers and similar events at this location.
Over the last 2 years, the current owners have created a virtual “Renaissance” at this property with major capital additions to structures and equipment. Part of this “Renaissance” has been building a very robust and varied events calendar—with usually 2 or 3 events each week featuring music, food or special themes which has driven increasing sales, name recognition, wine club membership, and great buzz through social media and word-of-mouth in their market area. Online ratings are very high— within the 5-star rating system, their ratings stand at 4.8 on Facebook, 4.4 on Google reviews, 4 on YELP! and 4 on TripAdvisor, along with many positive and thoughtful remarks across all these sites.
Wine production capability is massive, with 10,000 cases annually possible in the new winery, and about 9,000 cases annually possible in the old winery.
A separate restaurant facility, residence and guest cottage is also included in this offering along with separate equestrian facilities, and garage/shop area facilities.
This integrated vineyard/winery is being offered virtually turn-key, with very extensive and nearly new production equipment—as well as all the furnishings, fixtures and other equipment necessary to operate the many aspects of the overall enterprise.
The tasting room attracts about 75,000 visitors per year and top-line revenues are growing robustly. Certain one-day events have drawn about 2,500 attendees, thus creating many return visitors for the ongoing tasting room operation.
This offering has it all—large vineyard, first-class winemaking facilities, large, upscale tasting room, spacious outdoor patios and lawn areas, a first-class restaurant facility, a guest cottage, on-site residence, horse barn and facilities, and a barn/workshop. Sales and growth potential are very strong in the related market area, and all the heavy lifting has been done over the last several years by the current owners—this offering is ready to be taken the next level of success!
