Grape Expectations: The Time is Ripe to Own a Texas Vineyard


I’ve often dreamed about owning a vineyard and winery. My husband sometimes jokes that I’d need a pretty big one if I wanted to make all the wine I drink! Touche, sweetheart. Touche.

I bet he won’t be laughing once I show him this sweetheart of a deal in Canton. It’s a cute little farmhouse with the makings of a great little vineyard and winery, all for less than $400,000.

Yep, you read that right. And the seller, the founder of the successful Los Pinos Ranch vineyard, will hand over a business plan and blueprint to make sure your winemaking dreams become a reality.

“There is something wholesome about being able to wash off the day when the sun sets, and to enjoy the fruits of one’s labor,” says listing agent Amanda Thomas. “It isn’t an experience that many people in our modern society ever get to have.”

It’s an experience you can have should you be the dreamer to purchase Jeffrey Cellars in Canton.


“So many people fantasize and romanticize about the idea of owning a vineyard,” Thomas added. “Our listing at 5518 SH 198 in Canton is the perfect opportunity for one lucky buyer to turn dreams into reality and achieve ranks among Central Market’s and Whole Foods’ Texas Vintner’s list.”

This girl knows the way to my heart is through barrels and barrels of wine. So if you’re anything like me and dream of having row upon row of grape-heavy vines, and maybe a few goats and chickens, then this is the deal for you.

“The vineyard is currently in year-two leaf, and consists of three Pierce resistant varietals,” Thomas said. “The timing is perfect for acquisition, as a buyer could expect to complete set-up during the dormancy of winter months and start production next year.”

Thomas says this is an ideal property for a tandem team with one homesteader and one commuter, or a transitional buyer looking for a change due to retirement, a second career, passion project, or an investor. “This could be the deal of a lifetime,” she said.

And if you’re wondering, Texas dirt isn’t going to get any cheaper. For $379,000 you get almost 28 acres that includes a homestead with a super cute farmhouse that has two bedrooms and one bath built in 1961 plus a winery that’s almost completed. Just try buying this baby at this price in 12 to 18 months. Not going to happen!










The property also includes an RV pad with hookups, a well and stock tank, a workshop and shed, a cross-fenced pasture, a stocked pond, and an equipment barn. Oh, and there’s highway frontage just in case you want to do retail sales. Quite a deal!
