About 10343 E Hilltop Road
Build your legacy in Leelanau County with this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Ciccone Vineyard and Winery is a sprawling estate with a strong brand in an ideal location, and an incredibly picturesque property with unobstructed views of Grand Traverse Bay from many vantage points. This trophy opportunity is completely turn-key with a successful wine and event business, as well as a Winemaker's home or bed and breakfast accommodations. Ciccone's award-winning wines are made exclusively from estate-grown grapes - produced and bottled on-site. Ciccone has a superb staff, a huge and growing wine club following, and the historic barn and event spaces are well-booked throughout the year. Built in 1990, the two story Winemaker's home has gorgeous views in all directions - with 5 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, a large open main-level floor plan, immaculate grounds, and lots of outdoor entertainment spaces, the home has multiple potential uses including bed and breakfast, event guest space, and more. The kitchen has many updates including newer cabinets and counters, and the living areas all point to the views of the bay or the adjacent sprawling vineyard. The home is freshly painted, and has adequate storage areas as well as an attached three car garage. The Winemaker's home is also on its own 2 acre lot, which could be beneficial for flexible uses - or, it's a lovely primary home and perfectly positioned to oversee the entire Ciccone operation. In addition to the existing operation and lovely home, there is expansion potential as well. Plans for an onsite café, new production building, expanded vineyard potential, and event pavilion are all in hand and can be shared with the next steward of the property. The property consists of multiple parcels, which could be a flexible benefit as well. Sip award-winning wine from the back patio or the historic barn, overlooking sprawling vineyards, and a bay of blue. This Leelanau experience is definitely one to see in order to appreciate!
