Nestled amidst the idyllic landscape of Brandywine, strategically positioned for easy access to Washington, DC, Virginia, and Southern Maryland, a truly unique opportunity awaits.
This is a rare and enticing chance to acquire the very first commercial winery in Prince George’s County, MD. Founded in 2007, Romano Winery has a storied history of profitability until its temporary closure to the public in June 2023. Now, the baton is passed to you, offering the opportunity to build upon the foundations of success and elevate this business to new heights.
The offering comprises three parcels spanning nearly 23 acres of picturesque, rolling terrain, complete with vineyards, woodlands, and open fields. Adding to the appeal is a 3,453 SF two-story custom home, offering 3 bedrooms and 3.5 baths with picturesque views. Inside, find exquisite wood plank flooring, a spa-like whirlpool tub, dual-zone heating, a finished basement, a sprawling deck, and a bonus room above the finished two-car garage. The kitchen is adorned with Corian countertops, custom cabinetry, new stainless appliances, and freshly installed LTV flooring. A 16’x20′ two-story shed and 50’x30’ workshop/pole barn enhance the property’s utility.
Descending from the residence, you’ll encounter a separate tasting room containing 2,300 SF plus prep kitchen and additional storage space. Attached to this space is a 40’x60’ Pavilion, providing patrons with a serene environment to savor the winery experience while gazing upon the vineyard’s beauty.
On the direct opposite side of Bald Eagle School Road lie two additional parcels with their own vineyards. Here, you’ll discover a purpose-built 40’x60’ production facility and an additional 65’x30’ pole barn/workshop, all designed to support the grape-growing and wine-making process.
The vineyard itself, initially planted in 2007 with additional plantings in 2017, boasts approximately 1,600 vines, including varietals such as Vidal, Chambourcin, Cayuga, Traminette, Viognier, and Petit Verdot. Over the years, the vineyard has yielded an average of 8 tons of grapes annually, with the benefit and flexibility of procuring additional grapes from partner vineyards.
In terms of production, this boutique winery has historically produced between 1,500-2,000 cases annually, with the potential to expand to 8,000+ cases within the existing facilities with additional equipment. The growth prospects are exciting, with opportunities to host weddings and events, explore wholesale distribution, and resurrect the once-popular wine club.
Romano Winery has a strong track record of profitability, and its prime location, nestled between two other wineries, and accessible to major metropolitan areas, positions it perfectly to re-establish itself as a prominent and sought-after winery destination under new ownership.
Embark on your dream of entering the thriving wine industry in Maryland. Romano Winery’s legacy of success and its strategic location await your vision and creativity. Don’t miss this chance to make your mark in the world of fine wines.
