Auction Draws A Huge Crowd

$2.8 Million was the going price at Tuesday's auction at the Grande River Vineyards.

A crowd of more than 100 people including 21 registered bidders came out for the sale. According to an auction spokesperson, 81 acres were sold to six different buyers with a sale price of well over $34 Thousand per acre. Most of the land sold is zoned agricultural.

One buyer says he plans to build a home on some of his new land and lease out the vineyard he purchased. So far no final decision has been reached on the sale of the winery facility on approximately 10 acres of land.
