Vineyard, Winery and Tasting Room For Sale

Price: $895,000

Developed in the early 1980s by owner Joe Olexa, Ankeny Vineyard sits on the southern end of the Salem Hills. The bucolic natural setting offers views of the adjacent Ankeny National Bird Refuge and Willamette River with the Oregon Coast Range drawing the horizon line to the west. The South Salem Hills section of the Willamette Valley AVA has a proven track record of producing high quality wine grapes and wines. Willamette Valley Vineyards, Coria Estates, Trinity Vineyard and  Creekside Vineyard are all close-by. The 20 acre vineyard bordering the property was developed by Joe Olexa as well and is currently owned and operated by J. Albin Winery. Beyond exceptional wine and a picture perfect setting, the property has a historical draw as it provides access to Cox Cemetery, a pioneer cemetery founded in 1847 by Thomas Cox, Salem’s first storekeeper. The site is directly northeast of the vineyard.

The property includes a tasting room, winery building, tractor barn and farmhouse. There is a great opportunity to develop the winery and increase the onsite winemaking operation. Currently there is a very limited amount of wine made onsite.  Joe has focused he energy on working the land and cultivating premium wine grapes.

There is a fenced livestock section above the vineyard in addition to chicken coops and an expansive garden surrounding the home. There is a spring and holding pond onsite with water rights in place.

After tending to the vineyard for over 35 years Joe would like to continue living onsite in perpetuity. His preference would be to lease-back the farmhouse from the next owner for a negotiated monthly sum and turn over all farming, winemaking and tasting room management/sales to the next owner.
