Sotheby's International Realty - PURCELLVILLE, VA

Otium Cellars offers a fantastic opportunity to be part of Virginia's exciting and thriving wine industry. With stunning views of the Blue Ridge foothills, it is only a 45-minute drive to Washington D.C. In addition to the scenic, peaceful vistas, the winery and its vineyards are situated on ideal soils with moderate elevations, excellent drainage and in a temperate climate that nurtures the grapes into intense, complex wines. Adding to the charm of these 40 acres is Goose Creek which originates from clear mountain springs and meanders through the property on its way to the Potomac. The property is true to its name - "Otium" is the Latin word for tranquility, leisure, resting. Suitably, the property is located on Tranquility Road. Otium Cellars is the winery portion of Goose Creek Farms and Winery, a private equestrian facility dedicated to boarding horses. The equestrian facilities include an 18,800 square foot indoor riding arena with 8 stalls, office, dressing room, rest and washing room. The combination of the two lend to the property's picturesque, postcard views and create a rare and beautiful offering - two business, one property. Both operations are family owned and operated. The charming and historic Purcellville old town area is close by. Originally settled in 1764, much of Virginia's history is preserved here. Historic charm, natural beauty and the close proximity to the nation's capital make this area a coveted location. The new owner will step into a winery with a solid reputation and a strong business foundation. By combining the distinctive terroir with the old German, Franconian tradition of wine-making, Otium Cellars produces some of the finest wines in Virginia wine country. The winery has a loyal following of wine connoisseurs who appreciate the wines created with Austrian and German varietals. Dornfelder and Lemberger, as well as the more traditional Chardonnay and Pinot Gris, are a few of the premium quality varietals enjoyed by Otium Cellars customers. A main residence with more than 5,000 square feet and swimming pool, and detached guest house, are part of this offering. The 40 acres of Goose Creek Farms and Winery are set on a peaceful hillside. The winery, tasting and event venues, the vineyards, horse facilities and residences will bestow an extraordinary lifestyle for the new owner and superlative experiences for the guests.
