Notaviva Vineyards and owners Stephen and Shannon Mackey are heading west.

Well-known throughout the Loudoun business community, the Mackeys announced this morning that Notaviva, which is famous for pairing its wine with music, will relocate to Woodland Park, Colorado, to become an urban winery. The couple and their three children are moving, as well.

The Mackeys said they will continue to operate their creative agency, Mesh Omnimedia, out of downtown Leesburg. Mesh will also expand to Colorado along with the family's move.

“Shannon and I will be frequent fliers, participating in video productions and creative sessions with clients, and are excited to remain active members of the Loudoun business community,” Stephen Mackey told the Times-Mirror Monday morning.

The Mackeys picturesque home and tasting room, located on Sagle Road near the Loudoun-West Virginia border, was featured on HGTV's “Dream House” in 2008. The series and couple's love story inspired Stephen Mackey's recently released memoir, “Dream. Build. Believe.”

“We are very excited about the opportunities that lie ahead for the Notaviva brand proposition, based upon our unique vision for pairing wine and music,” Mackey said in a prepared statement. “Relocating our winery to a picturesque downtown between Colorado Springs and Breckenridge within sight of Pike’s Peak has reignited our commitment to our wines and their inherent synergy with music.”

Shannon Mackey, Notaviva's chief operating officer, added, “Our decision to move away from the beautiful home we built in front of a national TV audience, and the farm we founded nearly 14 years ago on land we have grown to love so deeply has certainly been a difficult and emotional one. We are incredibly proud of the positive impact we have had on the Virginia wine industry as well as Loudoun’s rural economy, and know that Notaviva has touched the lives of thousands upon thousands of visitors.”

The 42-acre farm and 4,500-square-foot tasting room, which is also the family's home, is being listed at just under $2.2 million.

The winery and tasting room will continue to operate throughout the listing period.

“Even if the farm sells quickly we will remain in the area at least through June 2017 for the boys to finish the school year and to honor existing Mesh contracts,” said Stephen Mackey.
