Colorado Front Range Winery and Wedding Venue for Sale River Garden Winery

Event Center with Vineyard, Commercial Kitchen, Parking, River Frontage

The River Garden Winery is a 45-acre riverfront property on the South Platte River near Fort Lupton, about 45 minutes north of Denver. Though the northern Front Range of Colorado is certainly not known for growing wine grapes, owners Bob and Mary Stahl were curious to see if it would work—and it did, spectacularly! The vineyard evolved from a couple acres of grapes to a full-fledged winery with its own tasting room and a large, spacious meeting room that is perfect for hosting weddings and other large events.

Colorado lakefront home with acreage & income-producing business

Many buyers are looking for assets that combine income with a country lifestyle. This property is an excellent example. The home 2,700-square-foot country home is comfortable and well kept, with 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and a 1,080-square-foot detached garage that doubles as a woodworking shop. The home faces a large pond stocked with bass and trout. North of the home, across a beautiful irrigated green meadow, stands the winery building with tasting room, reception area, and commercial kitchen. The upper level of the winery has a spacious open room that is perfect for events such as weddings, family gatherings, and parties. A large hand-built bar serves estate wines to guests, with a complete commercial kitchen behind the bar. The venue has men’s and women’s restrooms as well. The current owners have booked as many as 20 weddings a year on the property, with the potential to do 30 or more. The property is set up to accommodate large wedding tents with lighting, power, and parking.

Colorado winery and vineyard for sale near Loveland and Greeley

The River Garden Winery & Vineyard has 2.5 acres in hardy winter-resistant grapes varieties, including petit pearl, Trottenach, Marquette Rosé, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chancellor, Malbec, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Riesling, and several others. The winery makes about 500 cases a year, but production could easily be increased to 1,500 cases a year or more. The winery has very good barrel storage and plenty of capacity for increased production. While Western Colorado vineyards were hard-hit with early autumn freezes, that phenomenon did not occur on the Front Range, and the River Garden vines are in beautiful shape.

Colorado South Platte riverfront property with waterfowl hunting & whitetail deer hunting

A big bonus to this property is the hunting potential. The northern Front Range of Colorado is famous for excellent duck and goose hunting, and this property is right in the epicenter of it. The 45-acre parcel sits astride both sides of the South Platte River, offering outstanding waterfowl hunting with ¼ mile of access. Additionally, the landowner allows 8-10 deer hunters on the property each year, and they have harvested many nice whitetail bucks. The property has 12 shares of Lupton Meadows water rights and it owns 50% of the mineral rights.

Two separate parcels—one vacant riverfront parcel, one with house and winery

The 45-acre River Garden Winery is comprised of two separate parcels, 22 and 23 acres, of cottonwood groves and river frontage. The property can be purchased in different configurations. The vacant land parcel is offered separately for $750,000, or the buyer who just wants the home, winery, and vineyard can make a deal on that parcel as well.
