These productive vineyards for sale offer a “rare and remarkable” opportunity to enter the UK wine industry.
Newton Court Vineyards, in Dixton, are surrounded by the Monmouthshire countryside with main road connections.
The vineyards span three adjoining sites over approximately 20 acres, all being farmed organically and biodynamically.
In the past, the land has been used for sheep and cow grazing, and has a southerly aspect, being sloping plots with drainage and shelter that have been professionally deer and boar fenced.
The vines are split between Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, with a small amount of Selection Massale.
Projected yields for this year’s harvest sit at approximately 30 tonnes of fruit, producing up to 24,000 bottles of wine.
There is also a range of outbuildings, including a traditional stone barn which could be developed subject to planning permissions.
Three steel portal frame buildings offer parking space for tractors and similar machinery, and the largest shed is tailor made for conversion into a winery, meaning that the owner could make their own wine.
There is also a small stable block suitable for conversion into offices, staff accommodation and toilet facilities, subject to consents.
The agent notes that there may be potential for a wine making and/or farming contract to be agreed with Ancre Hill Estates, the current owners.
The vineyards are being sold by Powells for a guide price of £695,000.
The agent described the land as: “a rare and remarkable opportunity to acquire an established organic and biodynamic vineyard with a reputation for creating the highest quality Welsh wines from the productive, south-facing Monmouthshire slopes.
“The vineyards at Newton Court offer a unique chance to gain a footing in the rapidly expanding UK wine industry.”
