A lovely home in a wonderful little town with a successful boutique winery attached could be your pathway to an exciting, fulfilling life away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
The architect-designed home has 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, renovated kitchen and bathroom, a study, evaporative air conditioning, floor heat and slow-combustion heater, a great family home, and more, with a 2 car carport with an attached storeroom on a 1.7 ha (4 acre approx.) established trees and gardens on a level block with two acres of vines.
The Oxley Estate vineyard was established in 1978, and the winery has been in operation for 25 years. Wines of the highest quality have been produced, and are held in high esteem by the wine fraternity.
In beautiful North East Victoria, the township of Oxley lies in the King Valley and the Milawa Gourmet Region, ideal for local and tourist traffic, with Milawa, Bright, Wangaratta, Beechworth, Myrtleford, Shepparton, Benalla, Albury/Wodonga, Falls Creek and Mount Hotham all within close proximity. Many visitors are from further afield too, with the Hume Freeway only minutes away.
Many varieties of wine are produced, with some estate grown and others carefully selected from other dedicated local grape growers, making Oxley Estate a small but vital cog in the local viticultural network. As well, Oxley Estate is the only vineyard in Australia to grow the aucerot grape, producing a truly unique and exquisite dessert wine.
This exceptional winery has machinery and equipment necessary for winemaking, from growing, harvesting, crushing, fermentation and barrel aging to bottling, labelling, packaging and dispatch, as well as a delightful cellar door for tasting and sales to the public. There is an extensive customer list, both retail and wholesale, a cellar club which keeps growing, and an enthusiastic following hoping their favourite winery will continue to flourish. This is a walk in-walk out proposition, as the present owners have reached “retirement age” and would love to see their life’s work carried on by someone who has the passion to continue their dream!
This is a fully self-sufficient winery with huge potential. In its current form this winery can produce and warehouse 10,000 cases. There is a fully climate-controlled 6000 case capacity store room, refrigerated wine tanks, on-site lab, winemaking and barrel-aging buildings, and the attractive air-conditioned cellar door are just a few of the top-quality facilities and equipment. Extra winemaking and bottling contracts for other small wineries add to the potential of this great little business.
This winery is so well set you could use the residence as manager’s accommodation if you didn’t want to run the winery yourself.
The property also consists of:
• Grape varieties include durif, aucerot, chardonnay, Semillon, viognier and zinfandel, with other varieties sourced from specially selected local vineyards;
• All necessary machinery and equipment;
• 5 ML water right;
• Machinery shed for tractors, spray equipment etc;
• Large workshop;
• Water filtration system;
• Trickle irrigation system in vineyard;
• Unique water heating system.
The opportunity is huge for a keen entrepreneur to make this a very profitable and manageable business in a flourishing tourist area, with numerous local restaurants and bottleshops that seek to promote local products.
With great potential, fully self-sufficient, low maintenance and no further improvements needed, this property is a must see!
