Fine Wine Living at these Vineyard Estates

August 10, 2021

Vineyard estates: where decadent wines and exceptional properties — essentials of a choice lifestyle —  come together at the peak of luxury living. Not only are these properties exquisite and peaceful but they are also lucrative. Picturesque vineyards promise a lifetime supply of wine, an excellent investment both financially and personally. Vineyards and wine labels require dedicated caregivers who ensure crops are preserved and the business is managed effectively. While owning a private vineyard comes with many perks, only the committed can maintain and profit from these lucrative properties.  

Discover the next level of opulence with these five exceptional homes that embody an exclusive, luxury lifestyle.

Yountville, California

Surrounded by vineyards, including the property’s own dark Gentleman’s Cabernet grapes, this modern, barn-style Yountville estate makes for the perfect getaway. The 7,342 square foot primary residence allows for true indoor/outdoor living with large glass doors that lead outside from the double-height main living area. Additionally, a multi-purpose pavilion opens to the garden with three sliding walls for even more indoor/outdoor space. Inside, the main home features five spacious bedrooms. The guest house also includes two additional bedrooms which can function separately as guest suites. At the end of the day, owners can head up to the scenic third-floor viewing tower overlooking the gorgeous pool and spa, two spectacular ponds, bright mature gardens, a bocce court, and the scenery beyond.

Cutchogue, New York

Bedell Cellars, set on the eastern shore of Long Island, houses a 10,000 square foot winery, tasting room, fermentation cellar, barrel room, events pavilion, and agricultural barn. Since 1710, the deeply endearing, four-bedroom home has resided over the grounds, and its renovation has done nothing to diminish the building’s historic charm. For decades, the vineyards have been consistently and meticulously taken care of, becoming a part of Bedell Cellars’ rich legacy. Furthermore, a commitment to sustainable farming, hand-crafted small-batch wine, and a unique regional style make for an elevated product.

Healdsburg, California

Located in the heart of Healdsburg wine country, this tranquil retreat offers breathtaking views of the vineyards beyond. Four of the five acres on the property are planted with award-winning Zinfandel and Syrah, two grapes that are often combined for their high alcohol content, high tannins, deep color, and beautiful aging abilities. A detached wine cave is ready to be stocked with wine from this property or the Dry Creek and Alexander Valley wineries, located just minutes away. The garden, spa, and glimmering pool built for relaxing and entertaining look over the luscious, green vineyards and hills beyond. The main residence is fit with lovely hardwood floors, a charming breakfast nook,  gourmet kitchen, and high ceilings while the guest house includes a bedroom, bathroom, full-sized living room, and kitchenette.

Napa, California

Resting on nearly 18 private acres, eight of which are premium Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards, this Napa Valley home is equipped with all wine necessities and optimized for cash flow. The three fully remodeled cottages, although delightful, are not even the most striking feature of this property. Instead, the refurbished historical barn serves as both the ultimate event space and the heart of the property. Its warm ambiance, ample seating areas, and bar create a truly unique space for large gatherings. Just outside this intimate, wooden structure, are several more seating areas, two fire-pits, and a bocce ball court. Six ancient olive trees along with 100 other olive trees surround the area, ensuring an intimate and private event space.
