Project Description

Thistle Gate Vineyard


Thistle Gate Vineyard is a popular, fully operational, turn-key farm winery with 4.5 acre vineyard on +/- 42.85 acres just 25 minutes from Charlottesville. Thistle Gate, established in 2007, is located within the Monticello AVA (Top 10 American AVA by USA Today, 2020 Reader’s Choice Award) and is a member of the exclusive Monticello Wine Trail. Thistle Gate has been voted the Rural Virginia Reader’s Choice Best Winery seven of the past eight years, including 2020 and has won numerous wine making awards. The inviting tasting room offers ample seating, a kitchen, office and wine-making/storage facilities and is well suited for weddings, live music and private events. The beautifully landscaped exterior, covered front porch, patio, gazebo and bucolic vineyard views make all visitors feel welcome. Sitting atop the hill overlooking the vineyard are the charming guest cottage and 4 bedroom, 2.5+ bath home which was renovated in 2007 to accommodate a large eat in kitchen and elegant master suite. With nearly half a mile of river frontage on the Hardware River and cleared acreage for additional vineyard plantings, this gem of the Piedmont is ready to write its next chapter.

Offered at $1,300,000
