|Escape the hustle and bustle! Discover this small winery and country home. Founders of this artisan Winery east of Columbus, Georgia are ready to retire. This successful winery business currently produces approximately 7000 liters of wine per year and is fully Federal & State licensed as a farm winery vineyard facility. This is a “Mom and Pop” operation, with substantial potential to expand. Wholesalers service the state liquor stores and restaurants. The business holds a direct ship license in Georgia, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Florida. In addition, website sales through Vinoshipper allow wine to be directly-shipped to 30 states.
There is approximately 1 acre of blueberries on this 40 acre farm, with a potential to increase to 6 acres adjacent to the existing field. The berry sales started in 2007, while wine sales started in 2010. Both do well and have an established returning customer base both wholesale and retail. Both businesses and business relationships have been carefully grown and managed.
This 40 acre farm has nice terrain, with several nice development home sites all on high ground. The homestead itself is a 1600 sq ft well-maintained log home completed in 2006. It has a standing seam metal roof and full concrete foundation. The building is sited so it could easily be expanded. You’ll love the large covered log porches and the open living area with a farm style kitchen. There are separate heating and cooling units for upstairs and downstairs and a diesel gravity powered parlor stove in the main living room for heat backup. There is a fully enclosed dry concrete 4’ crawlspace with concrete floor for storage and utilities.
The artisan winery is located in its own building. With a kitchen area, bathroom and storage area this building could easily be converted to a guest house. Attached to this building is an equipment shed and covered parking for tractors and vehicles. There is a separate covered area where guests or customers can gather for wine tasting. All buildings have metal roofs and attractive wood exterior.
The wine business has been growing for several years with additions of larger work areas, vessels, and mowing equipment including a new Kubota tractor with pallet forks. Many surrounding towns and counties throughout the state, as well as Georgia Grown and other events, invite this winery to their local events to sell wine.
The log home is surrounded by a natural, well-established yard with many trees, and a large fenced garden area. Water is supplied dually, primarily by a 200’ deep-well, and backed up by county water to the house on demand. There is plenty of well water for both domestic and irrigation use. The berry orchard, as well as all the lawns and trees, are watered primarily with drip irrigation, and are on timed zones. Overhead frost protection on the berry orchard is also in place.
This property is currently under Conservation Trust with extremely low taxes. The northeast corner has hand planted long-leaf pine seedlings in addition to the natural wooded area, and a vernal pond to the south which remains full in rainy years. The owners both worked for the USDA Forest Service and have spent the last 10 years managing and improving the pastures and trees.
This is the perfect opportunity to enter into a manageable growing boutique wine business. There are also opportunities for additional farm crops, cattle or livestock.
