Gisborne Peak Winery, nestled a short drive from Melbourne, on the city side of the Macedon Ranges, is up for sale four decades after its owner planted the first vines.
The property features off-grid tourist accommodation, four visitor cottages, incredible views, and a cellar door with cafe. Nestled amongst rolling hills, this is an inviting location perfect for events such as weddings, with plenty of room for a new owner to inject their own personality, styling and management processes to build the business into one of the most sought after locations in the area.
While it may not have a winery per se, this incredible home might actually be a better option. Just as the old adage goes that there is only one thing better than owning a boat and that is having a mate who owns a boat, this property benefits from being surrounded by incredible vineyards without having to actually care for them nor worry about sales.
Sitting on a staggering 760 acres, ‘Rowanstan’ is another member of the Macedon Ranges clan and doesn’t disappoint. The three bedroom homestead is a quaint, airy home which gives the cellar door a welcoming atmosphere to visitors. The property has well-established vines and work equipment for producing Shiraz, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Riesling, and Sauvignon Blanc. Vineyards like this do not pop up on the market very often, especially those within a short drive of Melbourne.
This is no small venture. The 46 acre Quoin Hill Vineyard & Winery produces Shiraz, Pinot Grigio, Tempranillo, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir. A century-old restored Edwardian homestead is the perfect place in which kids can grow up, with surrounds that will tie them to the staggering wild beauty of Australia’s countryside like nothing else could. If you want a complete lifestyle change, aren’t afraid of the work involved, and have the budget, then this property 20 minutes from Ballarat is the answer.
This plot is perfect for someone wanting to invest in the longterm future, with 40 acres of vineyards that produce 115 tonnes of grapes per year, including Shiraz, Merlot, and Cabernet. There are 11 additional acres of vacant land waiting for someone to invest in a homestead and cellar door.
Just 14 kilometres north of Margaret River, this small winery with cellar door and cafe is a great option for those who want to take on the lifestyle of a winery owner but without having to take on the scale of a major label. If you have experience in hospitality than this may be the perfect option.
Set on 77 acres, the 4 bedroom homestead on this vineyard is a great place for families, with an additional farmstead suited as a cellar door and/or cafe. This is a very lush, green area, with truffles available in some neighbouring properties during certain times of the year indicating how bountiful the land is. A more affordable entry point price compared to those on the eastern coast, this property features over 11 hectares of vines, a currently unused winery and even ten hectares of untouched forest for the kids to explore.
Stay ahead of the curve by investing in a renowned winery just outside of Launceston and enjoy the flood of new Tasmanians coming from across the mainland looking for new homes in Launceston and Hobart. Rated 4.5 stars by James Halliday, Sharmans Vineyard is a well known establishment within the industry and there is little wonder why, this is a location like no other.
How is this property even real? This property would rightly make anybody speechless. Overlooking the Derwent, a very short drive from Hobart city centre, this property was built in 1850 and is in an incredible condition. The vineyard grows Pinot Noir, while the historic property is perfect for a family or someone wanting to look into using it as accommodation or function centre. With MONA only 5 minutes away, this has to be one of the jewels of the upper Derwent, and is exactly why those on the mainland are packing up their possessions for a life down south.
Finishing the list off in NSW just near Goulbourn, the 3 hectares of vines on this property make up just a small portion of the 37-hectare property, creating opportunities for significant expansion in the future. An existing cellar door and architecturally designed home make this property’s asking price hard to believe. The main reason for this property making this list is not just for its incredible views and facilities, but for its potential for significant expansion, building on its existing goodwill within the local community.
