Located in the popular Omaka Valley - a corner of Marlborough recognised as an extremely limited resource - this 21 hectare vineyard property features Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, and provides strategic investment as well as lifestyle opportunity. It is located in an area renowned for producing award winning wines, particularly Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc, by several internationally revered brands.
It is in two titles so could be on-sold in part, if desired. Not only does it benefit from receiving water under pressure via the Southern Valley Irrigation Scheme, the property enjoys the backup of a reliable underground water supply as well as an 11,000 cubic metre reservoir. The property could be managed under contract for a hands-off purchaser, there are a number of wine companies keen to purchase the grapes or a purchaser could have wine made under their own label.
The property includes an attractive site to build a house with stunning panoramic views and established specimen trees, including redwood, cherries and oaks. There is a three bay implement shed with a concrete foundation and an attached two storey utility building, complete with electricity, fresh water and septic tank.
All this is just a five minute drive from the Marlborough airport in an area well known for cafes, restaurants, tramping, cycling, sailing and kayaking. Within a one hour drive, there is a skifield, six golf courses, hunting for deer and wild boar, lake and river fishing, sea fishing, boating and diving. To top it off, Marlborough has a reputation for enjoying the longest sunshine hours in New Zealand.
On a per hectare basis, vineyards in the immediate vicinity are selling for plus $200,000.
