Salut! Hollywood-Famous $15M Winery Near Los Angeles Is Ripe for the Taking
You might have already seen this picturesque 90-acre vineyard on TV. And now it needs a new owner—one with $14,995,000.
The Agua Dulce Winery, about 45 minutes from downtown Los Angeles, notes on its website that its wines have won “multiple medals in several national wine competitions.”
“The wine is quite delicious,” says Adam Brawer, with Compass. “It’s the best rosé I have ever had, and I’ve had rosé in the South of France on numerous occasions.”
Brawer is co-listing the winery in Agua Dulce, CA, with Aaron Kirman and Matt Adamo, of AKG Christie’s International Real Estate.
The property includes five structures and vines of chardonnay, cabernet, sangiovese syrah, and port.
“In addition to the wine, the property is stunning,” Brawer says. “You’ve got vineyards and a beautiful home that opens directly to the vineyards.”
The roughly 5,000-square-foot main home has five bedrooms, five baths, and an open-concept living space. The place was built in 1987 but has been recently updated.
It’s been used as a vacation rental, going for about $1,000 per night.
Given its proximity to La-La Land, the home has also served as a filming location for movies and TV series, including the one-season ABC show, “Promised Land,” about a winemaking family.
The wine cellar building is 10,500 square feet, and the other commercial building is a 10,000-square-foot space with tasting rooms, a gift shop, and a bottling facility.
A new red barn is about 1,000 square feet, and there’s also a small caretaker’s house included in the listing.
“The barn was just built this year,” Brawer says. The sellers “poured seven figures into renovations, between mainly the warehouse and wine cellar.”
The business conveys with the sale, which includes the 4,000 members of a wine-subscription club, equipment, and personnel.
“It’s the closest winery to the city of Los Angeles and is within L.A. County,” Brawer says. “A lot of people go to Solvang, they go to Paso Robles, they go to Napa. This is a day trip that they can take.”
It’s a turnkey operation, and Brawer says.
“The Agua Dulce Winery offers a rare opportunity to own a legendary winery business, a place where you can continue a tradition, or start your journey,” Kirman says.
Brawer indicates they have an idea of who might buy this place.
“The next Francis Ford Coppola,” he quips, referring to the legendary director who also owns a winery. “Basically, an entertainer or a celebrity who loves to entertain and who is a wine aficionado and enthusiast who loves great wine. There happens to be an airport next door, so for the jet-set crowd, it’s perfect.”
