Sharp Rock Vineyards is located in Rappahannock County in close proximity to Shenandoah National Park and Old Rag Mountain within easy driving distance of Washington DC to the north and Charlottesville to the south. It is a scenic 25-acre parcel bordering the Hughes River and is a stunning mix of vineyard, fields, and woods. The mature vineyard planted in 1992 contains 4 acres of Chardonnay, 1 of Sauvignon Blanc, 1.5 of Cabernet Franc, 0.7 of Cabernet Sauvignon, and 0.3 each of Merlot, Malbec, and Petit Verdot. The 12 estate wines are poured in a 100 year old barn that has been repurposed as the winery/tasting room. The historic charm of the property is reflected in the buildings which grace the grounds. Two of them are B&B units. The Cottage was the original house built in 1790 sleeping 2-4. The Carriage house was built in 1850 and is perfect for couples. The Main House which was built in 1864 has 7 rooms – 3 bedrooms and 2½ baths- with original heart pine flooring. There is a horse barn with several paddocks on the property. Sharp Rock is an established turnkey business with an historic charm in an idyllic pastoral setting that benefits from the steady stream of hikers headed to Old Rag. The estate wines are all sold on premises and through a well-maintained website. There is growth potential in expanded production, wholesale distribution, and in the wedding / special event business. The cottages provide a steady income stream and there is room for B&B expansion into other outbuildings on the farm. History, setting, and potential make Sharp Rock a special opportunity!
