I get asked all the time, “what’s the most expensive house on the market in the New River Valley right now?”.
As of a couple of months ago, it was a nice Victorian in Christiansburg, on the market for the “bargain” price of $2,000,000. That house has since lost the title, however, when the West Wind Farm came on the market.
Listed by RE/Max First-Christiansburg, the home includes a vineyard and winery, set on 100 acres, in Max Meadows, VA. From the listing description:
West Wind Farm-Vineyard & Winery is an award-winning Virginia vineyard and winery producing quality certified label wines. After years of establishment, management, and growth, it is now being offered by the owners for sale as a complete, turnkey operation. One visit to the property and you’ll see a dedication to excellence everywhere you look. The owners have worked hard to develop a top-shelf business and it shows in this elite property. Nestled on a fourth-generation homestead in the Southwest Virginia Blue Ridge Mountains, West Wind Farm offers 100 acres of pristine land, vineyards, winery & tasting room, and beautiful custom 3,122 sq. ft. home surrounded by stunning vistas year around. Five acres of quality label certified vinifera varieties produce over 1600 cases of wine annually.
This sale will include all equipment needed to continue management of the winery and farm. Several revenue streams are established that will allow a new owner to generate income from day one.
ADDENDUM: The winery produces approximately 1,600 cases annually. 90-95% of sales occur on-site via the tasting room. West Wind Farm has been voted as one of the top 23 wineries in Virginia out of the 250+ in existence. The gift shop provides a comfortable shopping environment where guests can choose from a large selection of unique items that compliment their wine purchases. Corporate and social events can be held on-site. The outside gazebo surrounded by lush, green hills is the perfect site for an outdoor wedding. The formal dining room inside the winery has been home to catered meals for various corporate entities. The winery also hosts monthly dinners and seasonal concerts for their patrons. Off-site grape sales can also generate additional income for the business. About every other year, the owners sell surplus grapes to other wineries and clients in the state. The property also includes an 1850’s-era farmhouse that has tremendous potential for a bed and breakfast.
