Virginia Wineries for Sale: Spring 2016

Here are 10 wineries for sale that you should check out. (Or properties that would make for awesome vineyards!)

Did you know that the Virginia wine and grape industry nearly doubled between 2007 and 2012 despite the recession? This meant not only are the Virginia wineries making a profit and benefitting the state, but they are adding jobs, and are overall good for the economy. If purchasing one of the Virginia wineries for sale is on your radar for 2016, there are quite a few to check out.
Buying a winery is a large investment, and the decision usually depends on what priorities you have. Some of your priorities may be:

  • Price
  • Location

There are multiple AVAโ€™s and wine trails across the state of Virginia. Is proximity to larger cities important? Or perhaps proximity to the ocean, rivers and mountains?

  • Acreage
  • Vineyard

Some wineries for sale import some or all of their wine grapes, while others have large vineyards that produce all they need.

  • Varietals
  • Age of winery

Do you have a preference on a winery that has been around for ages, or perhaps you want something fresh, that can easily change branding.

  • Residence/Buildings
