Property Summary

Located in Amherst County in the heart of Virginia’s Wine Country, Lazy Days Winery planted its first vines in 2007. In the 15 years since, the family-owned winery has expanded to 10 varieties including Petit Manseng, Petit Verdot, Merlot, Tannat, and Malbec and can boast 100% estate grown and produced wines since the 2015 vintage. The expansive estate, situated on 88-acres with over 2,000 feet of road frontage along scenic Route 29, offers spectacular views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. This idyllic site hosts several festivals and events throughout the year including the Virginia Summer Solstice Wine Festival.

Adjacent to the picturesque vineyard, the main facility includes a rustic pole-barn with over 50,000 square feet of covered space making it perfect for hosting events such as weddings and other large gatherings during all weather conditions. In addition, a tasting room welcomes visitors and offers the opportunity to sample and purchase the 7 award-winning wines produced to fit every palate. The production area houses viticulture and bottling equipment with a production capacity of up to 2,500 cases per year. Large open areas, including a pond, surround the main facility and allows guests freedom to roam the grounds while enjoying unmatched views of the countryside and mountains. Away from the main facility, a separate 3,300 SF building is available to be converted into a second tasting venue or could be sold as an independent listing.
