Vineyards! Wine Cellars! Wet Bars! Here Are 8 On-the-Market Homes Designed with Vino Lovers in Mind
There are those who love wine, and then there are those who really, really love wine. If you fall into the latter camp (and have a casual few million to spare), consider a move to one of these incredible properties—all of which are designed with oenophiles in mind.
An Oceanfront Farm With a Vineyard (Cutchogue, NY)
Is a glass of white wine on the beach your idea of heaven? We’ve found your home, lady. While this fully modernized, picture-perfect farmhouse is a dream in and of itself, it also happens to boast a private beach on the Long Island sound, 47 rolling acres of farmland, and, best of all, a stunning vineyard of Chardonnay and Riesling vines. (The grapes are managed by a separate winery, but yours to enjoy.)
A Texas Mansion With a No-Joke Wine Cellar (Austin, TX)
Behold, a massive Texan mansion fit for a wine lovin’ queen. With its palm trees and a glorious pool, the lush outdoor oasis would make a fine spot for sipping your vino of choice. But then again, so would the colossal stone wine cellar with room for hundreds of bottles and a Game of Thrones-style tasting table.
A Sprawling Southern Vineyard (Scottsville, VA)
We’re pretty keen on cocktail hour from the porch of this beautifully restored 1780’s manor home. To sweeten the deal, you could be drinking your own red wine vintage, made from the mature Cabernet Franc grapes grown on the on-site vineyard. Magnifique.
A Romantic Mediterranean Retreat (Santa Barbara, CA)
Thanks to an enclosed Italian-style stone courtyard, surrounding olive and cypress trees and a large ocean-view deck for entertaining, this gorgeous property is as close as you can get to Tuscany this side of the Atlantic. But it’s the delightfully authentic wine cellar--with cave-like walls and colorful frescoes—that really makes us want to crack open a bottle.
A Luxury Winemaker’s Estate (Paso Robles, CA)
Located within 15 miles of award-winning wineries like L'Aventure, Windward, TH Estate Wines and Ecluse, this five-bedroom home is situated prominently in the West Paso Robles heartland. Don’t feel like leaving the property? There’s also a boutique two-acre vineyard, along with all the winemaking equipment (like a fermenter and grape press) that you’ll need to get crackin’. (The seller is a winemaker and just completed his first vintage, selling it for $85 per bottle.)
A Sleek Wine-Centric Manse (Templeton, CA)
Let’s all take a minute to discuss the rather epic entrance to this six-bedroom home’s expansive wine cellar. Then let’s move onto the polished concrete wet bar and panoramic views of the rolling vineyards in Templeton wine country. (P.S. Peep the bonkers pool situation.)
A Nature Lover’s Paradise (Palisade, CO)
Serenely situated in the middle of Colorado peach and wine country, this 6,000-square-foot property also boasts 12 acres of pristine vineyard and a majestic wine cellar for enjoying the fruits of your labor.
A Lavish Tuscan Villa (Napa, CA)
Presenting: The home of our (booziest) dreams. Nestled in the heart of California wine country, this Tuscan-inspired home houses its own rustic wooden wine cellar and five rolling acres of private planted vineyards. Oh, and there’s also a stone pool, tennis courts and full outdoor kitchen…all thoroughly enjoyed with a glass of wine in hand.
