Virginia Vineyards & Wineries
Virginia’s wine market is booming, with domestic and international wine enthusiasts flocking to the state’s well-marketed wine trails to sample internationally-recognized wines. Given the exploding popularity of the state’s wine market, there has never been a better time to explore Virginia wineries for sale. Virginia Estates is proud to offer our expertise to help you navigate the Virginia winery market and find the right property to satisfy your vision at your budget.
Though Virginia wineries have become increasingly well-known around the globe over the last decades, growing outstanding grapes has long been part of the Commonwealth’s history. Even before Thomas Jefferson planted some of Virginia’s earliest wine grapes at Monticello, the colonists at Jamestown took advantage of Virginia’s mild, protective climate to grow other hearty native grape varieties for food. By the mid-19th century, Virginia wineries had gained international repute: in 1873, a Virginia wine won the title “the best red wine of all nations” at the World’s Fair in Vienna. Prohibition slowed down the wine industry for much of the 20th century, but the 21st century has seen a renaissance in Virginia winemaking, and the state’s annual Virginia Governor’s Cup wine competition is well-recognized around the world.
Wine grapes are grown in many regions of the US today, but Virginia’s wines are unique. Virginia’s terroir is ideal for growing wine grapes thanks to the nurturing climate and the soil’s mineral content. More than 50 varieties of wine grapes flourish in Virginia, though particular wines grow best in specific regions. Virginia has several wine regions – distinguished by their soil type, elevation, and latest frost – whose microclimates each bring out particular flavors in the grapes. If you’re considering VA wineries for sale, we can help you determine which area is best for producing your desired wines.
If you’re looking to find a winery in Virginia, you’ll need to consider which property will help you to connect with customers most easily. One major selling point for Virginia wineries is the automatic customer base provided by the state’s well-marketed wine trails. Each of Virginia’s wine trails has a unique personality, with cozy winery tasting rooms, charming historic towns, quirky boutiques, and breathtaking views. If you want to buy a Virginia winery, finding a property in close proximity to an established wine trail can boost your visitor count. Alternatively, there are many Virginia wineries that have been open for years that also have a loyal customer base due to their unique tasting room or special varietal, even if the winery is not on a wine trail.
Whether you’re considering starting a new winery or want to take over an existing winery, there has never been a better time to jump into Virginia’s thriving wine industry. Virginia has over 300 wineries, yet demand for the state’s unique wines continues to grow – especially in foreign markets. For more information about VA wineries for sale, visit VirginiaWineries.com.
