The entire 293-acre Garrett Estate Winery property is for sale, but savvy buyers can purchase the 247-acre ranch parcel as a separate offering. The ranch parcel is situated to the south of the winery and custom home in a secluded Western Colorado setting. Irrigated by the CQ Lateral, a large canal fed by the Delta and Montrose Canal diverted from the Uncompahgre River and the Ridgway Reservoir, the ranch has excellent water rights, with a total of 126.7 shares for the acreage.
Situated on the end of Falcon Road west of Olathe, the ranch parcel offers excellent alfalfa hay production on 110 acres. The remaining acreage is a pleasant mix of cottonwood groves, dryland grazing, and creek bottoms. However, the ranch has an added bonus that few properties can match—a well tended mature vineyard of 17 acres of Riesling, Pinot Grigio, Cabernet Sauvignon, and other varieties of wine grapes. The Garrett Estate Winery is right next door, offering a great income opportunity for a new buyer. It takes several years for a new vineyard to get established, and this property has been in production for 8 years now, with award-winning wines made from these grapes.
For wine enthusiasts who have always wanted to have their own vineyard, this is an incredible opportunity. The Garrett Estate Winery, known for its award-winning wines, is right next door to this property, and it’s well-known in the wine world that wineries are always seeking good grapes. This vacant land property has an excellent vineyard with mature red and white varieties totaling 17 acres. The vineyards are in the exact same latitude as the Napa Valley, with the kind of rocky soils that allow great drainage—perfect wine grape terrain. The summer climate tends to cool nights and hot days, which fixes a high amount of sugars in the grapes, making for very flavorful wines.
This Colorado ranch property is a great hunting and recreation property. Colorado Game Management Unit 62 is known as one of the best units in the state for elk and deer hunting, and this property is known as a crossing area for trophy mule deer bucks scoring up to 230 B&C. The landowner has taken several big bucks on the property, as well as a cow elk every year during the late seasons. Telluride is 1.5 hours south; Ouray is 1 hour south; Crested Butte is 2 hours east. The Grand Mesa is only an hour north of the property, with 500 square miles of National Forest and 300 lakes. World-class fly-fishing can be found on the Gunnison River, just a half hour to the east. The area is also known for upland bird hunting, with pheasant, grouse, and quail, and the area has good waterfowl hunting as well.
