Business Description

This is a rare opportunity to own the most successful and largest estate winery in GA. The vineyards and winery sits on 106 acres of manicured property with 14 acres planted for production. In 1998 a successful real estate developer made a decision to make his dream of owning a winery come true. He believed that when you build something and lent your name to it people would see it as an extension of who you are. He spared no expense in order to insure that the winery was 1st class from through and through.
Included in the purchase are three retail outlets owned by winery and established to sell wine produced. Two of the outlets are located in one of GA’s most visited tourist destinations and the 3rd being the restaurant and tasting room on the winery property. The winery and vineyards were 1st established in 1998 and production began in 2004 after the vines had matured. The winery produces 20 labels using top of the line equipment which insures that the wines consistently meet the highest standards of the owner and deliver a consistent quality and taste s each season. In addition to the retail outlets winery has a flourishing wholesale business with approximately 300 accounts throughout the state including several GA Wal-Mart stores and other chain outlets. With demand for the wines being as it is the winery has contracted to purchase grapes from local farmers that meet the same standards as those grown in the wineries vineyards in order to meet the public s demand for their wines. This is a very profitable business producing a very successful product.

Market Outlook/
Competition:
US wine consumption has reached a record high with the US being the number one consumers of wine in the world. This is a market and industry that has grown through the worst of economic times. Unique GA laws allow wine producers to participate in a 3 tiers of the produce for wholesale, distribute and retail as well as end user sales. This is an advantage over other states which restrict producers to wholesale only. This is the largest and most successful estate winery in GA. There is relatively no competition in their market. They utilize a native grape that can only be grown in select areas of the Southeast. The winery generates additional revenue through their wedding & catering business, restaurant, and retail sales of specialty foods such as pickled vegetable, fruit preserve, jelly and vinegars. They have an established retail Internet business where they sell their wines along with specialty foods. There are so many areas of the operation that can be expanded to generate additional income and growth that we cannot list here. Understand that the winery was 1st set up to just supply wine for its 3 retail outlets. Due to demand the wine now has over 300 wholesale accounts. They have an strong Internet business, wedding and catering, retail, restaurant and act as retailer for other specialty food items. There is plenty of room for a B&B to be built on the grounds and over the course of existence they have had over 100,000 visitors to the winery.
