Wine… Vino… Wein… Ghvino… Fermented grape juice. However you say it, coming home to a glass of it is one of life’s greater pleasures. For most people that means a cheap glass of Chardonnay fresh from the Bota Box, but there are homes for sale out there that promise a far more enjoyable wine experience. Here’s a collection of thirteen properties pulled from Estately’s real estate listings that honor one of mankind’s greatest inventions.

If you’re stressed from working so much then hopefully during those many hours you’ve amassed $10.8 million in earnings. If so, you can afford this hot tub in Big Sur, which will provide a serene setting to open a bottle of something that’s also probably very expensive and worth it.

If that last one was a little to outdoorsy or rustic, perhaps this modern wine cellar done in a concrete bee hive-style will be to your liking. You could also swirl your Pinot Grigio while strolling upon the property’s floating bridge that crosses the koi pond be because that is also super relaxing.
