This boutique vineyard and cellar door is set on approximately 25 acres, against the backdrop of the Brokenback Range in central Lovedale.
The vineyard is around half a century old, unirrigated and planted on some of the best Semillon and Chardonnay growing land in the Hunter. It has achieved high accolades with awards and, in 2011, and was revealed by James Halliday as one of the Top Ten best new wineries in Australia and one of his “Dark Horses”. It has also achieved the equal highest rating for Semillon in the Hunter with its very first vintage, scoring a rare 96/100 and with recommendations of cellaring until 2041.
The land includes 25 acres, a massive near new shed which has been converted to a nice cellar door and large temporary living quarters (inc bathroom, kitchen etc), parking, huge thermostat controlled, air conditioned storage shed, which you could easily fit 100+ pallets of wine in at the back of the property, a 10meg PID and 10meg-plus dam, two smaller dams, power to rear and cool room for 1000+ cases. A current development approval is in place for a dwelling, additional shed and car park and all plans will be passed to the purchaser.
The land is 100 per cent arable, except for the 5 acres or so of Semillon and 2.5 acres or so of Chardonnay, both dry grown and producing award winning wine year after year. It’s located less than five minutes from the heart of Pokolbin on one of the main tourist routes set to benefit from the soon to be completed Hunter Expressway.
This property screams potential for the right buyer and is poised to benefit from all the groundwork which has already been done. Even better, up to 1400 cases of award winning wine is available with the purchase, giving new owners the potential to start earning income the day they move in.
