A stunning and very rare 14 +/- acre Private Family Vineyard on the thriving and renowned 290 Hill Country Wine Trail. In the heart of Texas’ most coveted wine-growing AVA, this legacy estate proudly boasts over 1,100 feet of US Hwy 290 frontage and over 1,400 feet of Pedernales River frontage. The property also contains an additional live water border that feeds into the Pedernales River, making this property truly unique. Purchased with a vision, the raw land was an old farm and homestead overrun with scrub and brush and was painstakingly cleared and made fertile again with the dream of becoming a legacy private family vineyard. The original 1800s home is now the Tasting Room after being beautifully renovated and restored. Adjacent to the Tasting Room, enjoy outdoor seating under the pergola and an outdoor kitchen serving delicious farmhouse sandwiches and Charcuterie. And, of course, a sizeable outdoor Veranda overlooking the beautiful and mighty Pedernales River. Guests enjoy live music on the weekends while laying on blankets stretched out on the pristine lawn overlooking the river while relaxing with private label vineyard produced wine or walking among the heritage hardwood trees as they meander by the river allowing themselves to surrender to the euphoria. With approximately 2.5 acres of mature vines already planted in a combination of Tannat and Mourvedre, the annual harvest is an astounding 4 tons per acre due to the fertile soils of the Pedernales River valley and the state of the art irrigation systems in place. Untapped land lies ready for multiple acres of additional vines to be planted and cultivated, which could make this one of the Hill Country’s most extensive producing vineyards given the proven harvest yields. The private label wines produced from these on-site harvests have created a solid client base with a passionate following. A favorite for traveling wine connoisseurs and Hill Country residents alike, the wine sales and vineyard profits continue to grow year over year. An impressive retail store full of vineyard merchandise and everything Texas also sits right outside the Tasting Room for an additional revenue stream. Guests can belly up to the bar and have a tasting as they browse the store items and find a piece of the Texas Hill Country to take home with them. Additional growth and expansion opportunities for this property are endless. The vineyard can be expanded to multiple additional acres, also producing high-end grape yields and wine production could be brought on site. There could also be a Bed and Breakfast community established with multiple dwellings to host travelers for an extended time. Simple construction could also introduce a state-of-the-art indoor wedding and event venue or could easily create a one-of-a-kind live music venue under the stars while serving vineyard private label wine to the captured audiences as they overlook the Pedernales River. There are more than 400 wineries in Texas, making it the fifth-largest wine-producing state in the nation. According to the Texas Wine & Grape Growers Association, Texas wineries attract more than 1.7 million tourists each year and the Texas wine industry contributes an astounding $13.1 Billion of Economic Value to the State of Texas. The Hill Country is home to over 100 wineries and vineyards, and Gillespie County is the epicenter of Texas Wine Country boasting more than 50 wineries, vineyards and tasting rooms. This area of Texas is home to the second most visited wine region in the United States.
