Award-Winning Vineyard and Winery, Burbank Ranch, to be Auctioned in the Top U.S. Wine Region of Paso Robles, California

If you’ve always wanted to own a winery here is your chance. The 84-acre Turnkey Business will be sold by Elite Auctions on June 17th

Burbank Ranch Vineyard and Winery, an 83.5-acre property with a thriving, licensed wine production business, will be sold at auction without reserve by Elite Auctions on June 17, 2017. Located at 5685 El Pomar Drive in Templeton, California, the estate is registered as a bed and breakfast and includes a 45-acre vineyard, three residential buildings and a modern winery and tasting room.

“Burbank Ranch was meticulously designed as a wine maker and connoisseur’s dream. The vineyard produced many award-winning wines, including Best of Class, during the first year it was harvested,” said Randy Haddaway, President and Founder of Elite Auctions. “Burbank Ranch was a true labor of love for Doctor Fred and Melody Burbank, who designed, constructed and farmed the 83.5-acre property for nearly 10 years. The buyer who purchases this property will be handed a highly esteemed operation that’s poised to continue growing into a booming business.”

Handpicked fruit is processed using the ranch’s state-of-the-art machinery and monitored by high-tech computer programs, all of which is available for purchase.

The 19,000-square-foot tasting room is situated on the property’s highest point and features wall-to-wall windows with panoramic views of the Santa Lucia Mountains. The main room boasts an oak tasting bar and opens to an expansive terrace that offers seating and an outdoor bar that overlooks acres of vineyards across rolling hills. A commercial-grade kitchen and three private offices are also located on the main floor.

Fermentation tanks, barrel vaults, a crush pad and a laboratory are thoughtfully positioned throughout the building to maximize quality wine production. The one-of-a-kind facility was designed with top-of-the-line ventilation and computer systems that are unparalleled in Paso Robles wine country. Burbank Ranch is certified to produce 10,000 cases of wine annually.

The 4,550-square-foot main house is a one-story, four-bedroom, four-and-one-half-bathroom estate. The home’s entryway opens to the living room, which boasts high ceilings, a grand oak bar and glass French doors that lead to the backyard. Behind the home sits a lap pool, a Bocce Ball court and a dining area shaded by a pagoda blanketed by lush wisteria flowers.

An attached 650-square-foot, two-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment includes a living room, a kitchen and a washer/dryer. The property’s final structure is a 1,000-square-foot gatehouse with three-bedrooms, two-bathrooms, a kitchen, a living room and a washer/dryer.

Burbank Ranch is located in the El Pomar District of the Paso Robles American Viticultural Area (AVA), which is recognized as one of the few premium grape-growing regions in the world. In 2013, Paso Robles won Wine Enthusiast’s Wine Region of the Year award, which recognizes excellence in wine quality, innovation and excitement in an area. Burbank Ranch was also awarded the “Sustainability in Practice Certificate” by the Central Coast Vineyard Team for its energy efficiency, social equity, farming sustainability, water use, recycling and packaging processes.
