Brook Eden Vineyard - An Established Destination
One of the founding members of the Tamar Wine Tourism Route, with a well-known, highly respected and recognisable brand profile having won multiple wine awards on both domestic and international stages. With vineyards originally planted in 1988, expanded in 2015 and still with room for significant further expansion on this and adjoining titles, Brook Eden should make any wine professional or enthusiast sit up and take notice.
Brook Eden is set on approximately 30 hectares (73.85 acres) with an additional 12+ hectares (30 acres) in two adjoining titles also available for people with expansion options in mind. The vineyards of Brook Eden currently combine mature vineyard established in 1988 comprising 2 hectares (rows at 2.1.m X 0.7m spacings) plus 1 hectare of additional recent plantings (rows at 2.3m X 1.5m spacings) in 2015 - now totalling 3 hectares. There is substantial further expansion opportunity with both vineyards and Winery options. Vineyard areas could be significantly increased with suitable sites both on the home title of 5-6 hectares as well as areas on the two additional titles having long been identified.
Grape Varieties and clones featured across the current vineyard parcels now include: -
Pinot Noir D5V12 (2051) G5V15 (8048) 0013 0014 Abel & 115
Chardonnay - 8127
Pinot Gris D1V7 (half planted and half grafted onto Riesling*)
Lagrein A Northern Italian red varietal of significant interest and potential in cooler climates)
Wines produced under the Brook Eden label include Riesling*, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Rosé, Pinot Gris and Sparkling wine. (* Riesling vines now grafted to Pinot Gris) and from 2023 the first Lagrein wines are in barrel maturing. With the new vineyard coming of age annual year on year yields are anticipated to steady in the range of 17 to 20 tonnes per vintage +/- depending on variations of seasonal influences.
Further developments and improvements made during current tenure include a rebuild of the original cottage, a new winery building/cellar door complex, installation of water storage complex for vineyard, domestic and garden needs.
The original home has been substantially reimagined and is now a stylish 2+ bedroom homestead with open plan dining and multiple living areas all accessed from the well-appointed galley kitchen areas. The main family living area features dining and lounge room which opens to a spacious all weather under-roof deck ideal for relaxation or entertainment overlooking gardens, vineyards and rural surrounds. From the kitchen or the main living room the home extends past a library area, the tastefully appointed family bathroom to the second sitting room - continuing open plan to a designated office area and second bedroom. The Master bedroom is accessed from the main family area and features an expansive dressing room. Each of the living and working areas feature access to an undercover outdoor deck or patio area including the master bedroom which also boasts a jacuzzi spa from the deck to soak away the days endeavours. The main entry to the home is via an all weather portico and utility prep and wash-room.
The recently renewed wine complex would allow for winemaking onsite if a new owner desired, currently it is utilised as Cellar Door and wine storage for Brook Eden's impressive inventory of vintages held. A well appointed mezzanine area also serves as business office and staff facility. A commercial kitchen services the cellar door area. The new wine facility building/cellar door complex measuring approximately 27 metres by 11.5 metres is fully insulated, features split level areas for load/unload, but also useful for gravity feed if wines were to be made on site in the future. It features pallet stack racking for maximising storage accessibility and three vehicle/forklift accesses for ease of transfer of stock.
Plans were prepared at the time of the property redevelopment for a dedicated separate cellar door structure which would provide additional benefits of maximising the wine production area, while also providing a degree of separation for the cellar door experience surrounded by vineyards and potentially providing an extra layer of bio-security if it were a consideration. The two additional titles also provide fantastic additional opportunities for further vineyard expansion but also other tourism opportunities while maintaining a degree of separation if desired.
The property features tremendous water resources, reserves and natural wetlands that are home to an abundance of native beauty. The dams on the property are not registered but conservatively have a combined capacity estimated in excess of 30 megalitres.
Gentle rolling slopes and abundant pastures are a valued component of the property, and provide an opportunity for additional income through grazing and fodder sales.
Shelterbelts that further value-add with established Olives trees & newly planted Elderflower as well as the environmental value from Blackwoods and other tree plantings.
The property is run as organically as practicable with vine health and nutrition a focus, as is nurturing and preserving the natural and native environment of the property to provide a sustainable future and to enhance the attraction and experience whether for those in residence or those enjoying the experience of a visit. This truly picturesque property has a wonderful diversity of lifestyle, habitat, scenery and opportunity for new owners to take over and enjoy.
This is an exciting opportunity with one of the longest-standing, respected and recognisable brands of North East Tasmania. When mainland wine interests and beyond are migrating to add or create cool climate viticultural opportunities to their portfolios Brook Eden provides the opportunity to purchase an existing established operation with growth opportunities, with a track record and accolades to match. Brook Eden has an enviable inventory of vintages of their wines th
