Big E Farm—the North Fork property that hosts the Martha Clara Winery—has sold for $15 million to one of the most renowned Mexican wine producers, the Rivero-González family.
The most recent asking price was $17.5 million.
Previously owned by Robert Entenmann of Entenmann’s Bakery, the transaction of Big E Farm is the second-highest in North Fork history. The most expensive sale went for $19.5 million back in 2008. Both sales were represented by Corcoran Group’s real estate broker, Sheri Winter Clarry.
Of the 205 acres, 113 of those acres are under vine. On-site, there are nine barns, a wine club gallery, an event gallery, a tasting room, a culinary education center, three cottages, and a residential manor house.
Inside the manor house, one will find five bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, a professional kitchen, a commercial baking room, a club room, four fireplaces, a solarium, and a full basement with a fitness pool, gym, wine cellar, and spa room. An elevator services all three levels.
María Rivero, the CEO of the acquisition, said:
The Rivero-González family has 15 years of experience in the Mexican wine industry and is excited about this acquisition, which will help the members of the family expand their interests beyond Mexico. Likewise, the Riveros are willing to work with the local community in order to encourage and enhance the legacy of the former owners of Martha Clara Winery in a successful way.
