Location: 40 Mountain Rd, Marlboro
Description: Set inside a 1913 barn on a picturesque hillside, Malrboro’s Glorie Farm Winery got its unofficial start in 1983 when owner Doug Glorie planted his first Seyval Blanc grapes. Officially, it opened shop in 2001, selling first to local wineries and later shifting to a full onsite operation that produces 15 varieties of wine, including Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay, and Riesling.
Now, after more than 15 years in operation, the husband-and-wife owners are ready to retire and pass along Glorie Farm Winery to the next generation of vinters. Located on 52 acres in Ulster County, the picturesque property is a dream for any prospective vineyard owner. It has 13 varieties of grapes onsite, along with apple, pear, peach, and quince trees, plus black currant bushes as well.
The property is optimized for energy efficiency with three wells, one of which can produce 65 gallons per minute, and solar panels on both the house and the barn. In regard to the residence itself, it charms with a new kitchen and bathroom and a handcrafted stone fireplace, three bedrooms, and two bathrooms.
Asking price: $1,950,000
Selling points: Still currently in operation, Glorie Farm Winery is a turnkey property that is ideal for a newcomer to the industry or a professional seeking a small-scale vineyard operation. In the winery, a tasting room is ready to welcome guests, while bottles, corks, and two walk-in coolers are valuable resources to get a new owner up and running.
