A fantastic opportunity has arisen to own an award-winning vineyard business and home in the renowned Bannockburn area of Central Otago New Zealand.
Having won numerous international awards including the Trophy for the Best Pinot Noir and the Red Wine of the Show at the London International Wine Challenge in 2007, as well as the International Trophy for Pinot Noir at the Decanter World Wine Awards, Bald Hills is already a successful brand, and “unmistakably Central Otago”. With a dedicated website already in place, this brand is poised for expansion.
Plantings of this 11 hectare site include 5 hectares of a selection of pinot noir clones. In addition there is one hectare each of pinot gris and riesling. Total planted area spans 7.2 hectares with space for an additional two hectares of planting. All vines are mature, in full production, and occupy level to gently sloping land. Irrigation water is pumped from a bore.
Set against the picturesque backdrop of Lake Dunstan, as well as the Sugarloaf terraces and Pisa Range to the north, this sunny home and vineyard is in an idyllic location. A charming aspect of the property is the extensive garden, lawns, hedges and perennials. Around every corner there is a unique space to relax or entertain, as well as a vegetable garden and orchard.
A wide welcoming front doorway sets the tone for the home. Light-filled and spacious, the double height living area opens out onto a paved terrace sheltered by a macrocarpa and reclaimed wharf timber pergola, which can also be accessed from the master bedroom and kitchen via double doors.
As well as four bedrooms and three bathrooms, this functional property has a dedicated office space coupled with a further bedroom and bathroom above the temperature-controlled double garage.
With level access from a sealed road, the property offers serenity and security, distanced from neighbours and surrounded by lush vineyards.
This is an outstanding opportunity to expand on an established, internationally known business and lift this property into the next phase of development.
Potential to expand by purchasing or perhaps leasing neighbouring land.
