Public: Exclusivity, Location, Setting, Views, Privacy, Quality and Access are the hallmarks of exceptional real estate. This expansive 215 acre winery estate embodies these important qualities. Located in affluent Loudoun County Virginia, approximately 37 miles from Washington Dulles International airport and an hours drive from Washington DC, the property offers a refined setting with idyllic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, ponds and vineyards. The large brick estate home features 5 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, 2 half bathrooms, 4 fireplaces, 2 car garage, finished basement, country kitchen and a dining room that can accommodate 20 of your closest friends. Indulge in a glass of wine from your own estate on the 1600 square foot brick patio right behind the house while soaking in the new hot tub. There is a unique man made cave used as part of the winery operation. The designers of the wine cave (Formworks Building) claims that this type of structure was in a simulated nuclear blast test in White Sands Missile range and was undamaged. It is very rare to have such a structure on private property. The main Winery building is a multipurpose building used for wine storage, wine production, tasting room, and other events. The adjoining 1600 square foot patio has grandiose views. Three other storage buildings house the substantive equipment used in the vineyard and winery operation. There are 3 docks on the 4 ponds, including a 40 foot regulation “Dock Dogs” jumping dock. The Winery has earned their place on the World Wine map. In the past three years the winery has won over 125 Platinum, Double Gold, Gold, Silver and Bronze medals in prestigious International wine competitions. These Premium wines have scored 9 “Best in Show” awards and as high as 95 points in the San Francisco International Wine Competition. In 2020 the winery won the coveted “Chairman’s Grand Award” for the top scoring wine out of Loudoun counties 40 wineries. When you grow your own estate grapes you have total control over the quality of wine you produce. THE VINEYARDS. There are 29 meticulously maintained acres of premium noble grapes. The resident viticulturist received the 2019 Loudoun County “Grower of the Year” award. Thanks to the exceptional soils, the vineyards produce very high quality grapes, which quickly go from sought after to sold out. There are 15 varieties of Old World grapes including the Bordeaux varietals of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Sauvignon Blanc. The Rhone Varietals consist of Grenache, Syrah, Mouvedre and Viognier. The Spanish varietals consist of Albarino and Tempranillo. The remaining French varietals are Petit Manseng, Tannat and Chardonnay. There is room on the 215 estate to expand the vineyard plantings. In the most recent year, the vineyards produced 127 tons of grapes. THE LAND. The property has over 1100 feet of road frontage, and continues to near the top of the mountain behind the house. This is akin to owning the side of a mountain. This property is in Land Use which is an agricultural tax assessment which results in significant tax savings. There is NO HOA, NO Conservation easement and NO restrictions. The 4 ponds are engineered with emergency spillways and stocked with gamefish & Koi. The ponds can also be used for irrigation if needed. There are miles of hiking or ATV trails in the woods & wildlife observation stands. There is an area for skeet shooting, golf driving range and a heliport. To keep things in perspective, 215 acres equals one-third of a square mile. In approximately an hours drive one is transported from the hectic pace of Washington DC to this peaceful and private retreat, providing a year round haven for rest and relaxation. Become part of the thriving Loudoun County and Virginia wine scene or just take over a large picturesque estate unlike any other.
