All-inclusive Colorado gentleman’s ranch for sale with winery, vineyards, hay production, grazing, hunting, recreation, BLM access, and custom home
The Garrett Estate Cellars in Olathe, Colorado, is one of western Colorado’s favorite wineries and vineyards. The winery has state-of-the-art winemaking equipment capable of producing up to 7,000 cases of wine a year, with award-winning varieties such as Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and white varieties of Riesling, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, and Gewurztraminer. This well-established winery is currently listed for sale, along with an excellent stock of inventory to either continue the Garrett Estate brand, or start over with new labels. The winery building is 7,475 square feet, with state-of-the-art wine presses, fermenting vats, chillers, bottling equipment, labeling equipment, and storage for thousands of cases of wine. The winery has a beautiful tasting room that is capable of hosting a hundred-plus people for various types of events.
The big picture of this established property extends beyond the famous winery. The entire property consists of 300 acres of Western Colorado ranch and farmland, with a pleasing mix of topography comprising over 110 acres of productive alfalfa and grass-alfalfa hayfields with excellent water rights, 60 acres of vineyards, a large canal winding along the western edge of the property, and a 17-acre parcel of irrigated land that could be used for future homesites or to install another vineyard. The property borders BLM lands for over one mile, offering easy access to public lands for ATV riding, horseback riding, hunting, shooting, and other recreation.
Set along the Rockies’ Western Slope, the region benefits from a relatively mild climate and exposure to sunlight that hits the vineyards at the same angle as Napa Valley to the west. With farms in the area known for producing Olathe sweetcorn, the wineries here also take advantage of the same soil and climate to yield their own varieties of flavorful grapes.
