Land area is 20.23 hectares (approximately 50 acres), with 2 ha (5 acres) under vine comprised with plantings of the classic Burgundy and Champagne varieties Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. The Vineyard is planted and managed to Scott Henry trellising to maximise quality and quantity of yields for producing classical traditional sparkling and table wines.
With its ability to produce significantly increased yields, while maintaining (and some would argue increasing) quality the Scott Henry trellising allows the vines to maximise potential on the slopes. This manicured vineyard continues to deliver on promise and the site has the potential of expansion to potentially double the vineyard area if desired. The vineyard has fastidiously tended by the vendors since establishment who have sought and been guided by the most respected of consultants and advisors in the Tasmanian Wine Industry. The vineyard has been managed wherever possible utilising the best of organic principles.
The property has been rejuvenated in all areas, the residence and capital infrastructure are renewed or new, the farm as a whole has been rejuvenated with fertiliser and fencing, the vineyard relatively speaking is a new development, the holistic farming practices employed over the property have been implemented to increase productivity, viability and sustainability. Along with rainwater storage from building infrastructure, 10 megalitre water storage plus 4,000 litre/bore provide generous water resources for the farm operations in addition to gravity fed reticulation from 110,000 litre storage tank and rainwater storage tanks off infrastructure at the residential/cellar door compound. The property has had Vermin proof wallaby fencing installed and a Weather station with 3 in ground moisture sensors to monitor levels in the vineyard. Energy Efficiency has also been a major consideration when establishing new facilities with the installation of a 9.9 kilowatt 30 panel solar energy plant contributing to efficiency and feeding the grid.
The weatherboard Colonial homestead Circa 1900 is now a bright elegant yet modest 90 square metre 2 bedroom, single bathroom cottage with open plan living and dining area at it heart for communal living. Plans have been submitted to convert the existing frontal verandah to a 3 sided wrap around verandah/deck to further increase the appeal and lifestyle opportunity.
Cellar door has been established adjacent to the residence and is currently operated weekends and by appointment on other days. The cellar door has full guest amenities, and is a very versatile space for creating an intimate guest experience. Conveniently located only a couple of minutes out of Lilydale and just 20-25 minutes approximately from Launceston and located on the Tamar Valley and North East Wine Routes, the vineyard is in a perfect spot for visitors and locals to frequent for tastings.
The Asking Price $1,425,000 bare Plant and Equipment (P&E) as well as Wine Stocks may be purchased at valuation (S.A.V.) as part of a Walk in Walk Out (W.I.W.O.) sale to enable continued trading.
I look forward to speaking with you shortly to discuss further. The vendors themselves are very happy to remain in a management or transition role for a mutually agreed period if required or indeed willing to stay on to assist in or manage the operation on behalf of new owners. Recently established Vineyard and facilities, room for growth, already achieving accolades and awards, has alluring heritage and combines the best of the old and the new, this offering represents a genuinely rare opportunity.
