If you’ve been looking for a chance to own your own vineyard worthy of Hollywood’s elite, we have some good news for you.
The Beaufort Vineyard & Estate Winery, purchased in 2014 by filmmaker James Cameron (of “Titanic” fame) is up for sale.
All you need is $5.6 million and you can own the business that was Vancouver Island’s first organically certified winery, located at 5854 Pickering Rd in Courtenay.
The listing on realtor.ca includes all the facilities and equipment required to run the business, including several buildings like the winery, tasting room, wine bar and workshop, and winery residence.
Katie Phelan, Beaufort’s Sales and Communications Manager, said in a phone call with Victoria Buzz that the business is booming.
She says that Cameron and his wife are selling as they relocate to a full time life in New Zealand.
“The expectation is that the team will continue as normal,” Phelan said. “It’s business as usual, things are going really well.”
Phelan added that there is no specific buyer in mind for the listing at this time.
So if you happen to have a little under $6 million kicking around, why not spring for a winery that will make you feel like you’re “king of the world”?
