This site was identified as one of the best wine growing sites in New Zealand by prominent New Zealand winemaker Alan McCorkindale after a 12 year search across New Zealand. It was identified for its soil type with limestone content and microclimate and plantings have excelled in this location. The small vineyard on the property has been managed on organic principles since 2011. Handpicked grapes are then bottled locally producing circa 3000 bottles annually that are sold through the Alan McCorkindale Wines label both nationally and overseas.
Accessed from a tree lined driveway this rear private parcel of land has an elevated position with commanding views across the Waipara Valley. Sun drenched with a North-Westerly aspect this sloping block is awaiting new owners and their vision.
Thoughtful plantings include 1.5 hectares of grapes and a further 200 olives. A potential building site has been identified and extensive planting of trees, shrubs and flowerbeds has already taken place. The block is connected to the Hurunui District water supply.
Comprising 17.2000 hectares, it is in permanent pasture with shelter along two boundaries. Surrounded by established vineyards, wineries and farmland this is a very unique opportunity to acquire a very special property in a remarkable location.
