Property Watch: Wandin Valley Estate and One of the Hunter Valley's Oldest Wineries Listed for Sale
Two prominent estates in the Hunter Valley are being marketed by Jurds Real Estate through expressions of interest campaigns.
One is Oakvale Wines on Pokolbin’s Broke Road and is expected to attract buyers around $6 million. Established in 1893, it is one of the region’s oldest wineries.
Selling agent Alan Jurd said it presented a rare opportunity to acquire one of the region’s most well-known and regarded wine businesses.
The other asset is Lovedale’s Wandin Valley Estate, which Mr Jurd said was one of the Hunter Valley’s most desirable and iconic estates – “a trophy property” as well as a business opportunity. It is expected to attract interest above $9 million.
A purpose-built English style cricket pavilion is a feature of Lovedale’s Wandin Valley Estate which has been listed for sale.
Originally known as Millstone Vineyard, it was bought in 1990 then further developed by Philippa and James Dalvern, creator of popular 80s television show A Country Practice. It is now owned by an overseas investor.
The 100-acre property has a vineyard, winery, cellar door, restaurant, European-inspired accommodation lodges and purpose-built replica of an old English cricket pavilion with full commercial kitchen.
