Located in the South West of Victoria just inland from the world famous 12 Apostles and Great Ocean Road in Cooriemungle you will find 28 pristine acres with a glorious view to the Otway Ranges.
The property is currently operated as a commercial Vineyard and Winery with Cellar Door. Eight of the 28 acres are ‘under vine’. Grape varietals include; Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Meunier and a few small rows of Shiraz. Average wine production is approximately 10,000 bottles per annum. Most of which are sold at the Cellar Door or as online sales. Some grapes are sold to other Winemakers.
In addition there is a substantial 50 square brick veneer home comprising open plan kitchen, living and dining area, a central family bathroom with spa bath, 5 bedrooms of which two have ensuite bathrooms, an office, linen store, cellar (above ground), laundry, a second large family living room and an oversized single garage with remote door. Prior to the current owners this property operated as a B and B; the large home was purpose built with this in mind.
Outside there is the Winery and Cellar Door building 60m x 30m with 3 phase power. This is fully insulated with concrete floor, a mezzanine storage area and W.C. There is a second shed; a machinery shed that measures 80m x 30m and houses the Cool Room for wine storage. There is excellent water storage with four 7000 gallon poly tanks for the Winery and residence, a one mega liter dam with pressure pump for the farm and garden and a 10 mega liter irrigation dam if required (Not Used Since 2000 as there has been no need)
The balance of Land is suitable for cattle or sheep or you could extend the vineyard if you desire. The North East facing Ridge with a Limestone base is the perfect terrior.
The vines at Newtons Ridge Estate were planted in 1998 by David and Dot Newton; who were also influential in starting the 12 Apostles Food Artisans and Gourmet Trail. The trail grows in popularity each year. With as many as 2,000,000 tourists along the Great Ocean Road the potential is huge. If you are interested in being a part of the Cool Climate Wine Industry this really is a fantastic opportunity.
Imagine being able to acquire an established vineyard that has a fabulous track record; with eight acres of 18 year old vines that produce high quality wines and is already a major player in the local food artisan’s Gourmet Trail.
