An Exceptional, Award-Winning Vineyard, Winery, and Events Center
Calling all wine lovers and entrepreneurs! Don’t just dream of making your own mark in the wine industry—take advantage of this rare opportunity to own Good Luck Cellars (GLC)! GLC is nestled in the countryside very near the charming and picturesque town of Kilmarnock, on Virginia’s “Northern Neck”, the peninsula between the Potomac and Rappahannock rivers that stretches 100 miles southeast from Fredericksburg to the Chesapeake Bay.
This area is a very popular “four-season” weekend getaway for residents of large, nearby metropolitan areas such as the greater Washington DC Metro Area and the greater Richmond Metro Area, which together have a population of about 7.6 million people—and all within an easy 2 to 2 ½ hour drive of GLC. These areas tend to have high education and employment levels and a robust and growing economy, along with well compensated government, business, and medical professionals who have high levels of discretionary income and an affinity for visits to estate wineries such as GLC, to engage in the casual enjoyment of great estate wine in a scenic and relaxed setting—like that offered at Good Luck Cellars!
GLC and 12 other vineyards-wineries currently comprise the Chesapeake Bay Wine Region of Virginia—so, there is good synergy for those wishing to visit multiple wineries and GLC is also one of the nine Premier wineries which comprise the Chesapeake Bay Wine Trail.
GLC is situated on a sprawling 135.8-acre estate, and this extraordinary property consists of two large adjacent parcels, making it a true gem in the heart of the Northern Neck—and the Chesapeake Bay Wine Region. There is ample undeveloped acreage on these parcels which provides the potential for other uses, and future development in a very desirable area.

- The picturesque vineyard blocks provide a breathtaking backdrop for visitors looking to indulge in the finest GLC wines.
- GLC is proud to be home to 14 rescue dogs that patrol the vineyards, chasing away wildlife so their grapes have a chance to thrive & later become great GLC wine. Nearly all of their “dog squad” members were recruited from local animal shelters, are very happy at their work, and are well cared for.
