Notable vineyard in Mudgee Wine Region comes to market

6 December 2022

A highly productive organic vineyard in the famous Mudgee Wine Region has come to market, offering a unique viticulture investment opportunity. 

Located across an approximately 127.11-hectare landholding, Zeals Vineyard in Gulgong offers close to 64.4-hectares of wine grapes including Shiraz, Cabernet, Sauvignon and Merlot.

The property is listed through the Colliers team of James Beer and Tim Altschwager with price expectations of more than $6 million.

“Zeals Vineyard comprises a well-developed and highly productive organic vineyard located in a leading wine region. The property benefits from high quality infrastructure and structural improvements, and we anticipate it will be well-received by wine industry participants and agricultural investors alike,” Mr Beer said.

“The property produces on average approximately 300 tonnes of fruit per annum, which is supplied to a well-known winery in the Hunter Valley.”

“We expect the premium nature of the offering, favourable varietal mix and excellent location will appeal to purchasers looking to acquire a flagship holding in a highly-visited region,” Mr Altschwager added.

“Zeals Vineyard also has further development potential, with an additional 30 hectares serviced by underground irrigation infrastructure, so the vineyard could be readily expanded, and the property is also in six Certificates of Title, so there is potential to acquire individual lots.”

On top of the vineyard, the property also comes with a substantial modern four-bedroom homestead, which is set amongst established and manicured lawn and garden areas. Additional improvements include a manager’s residence, two machinery sheds, two storage sheds, an irrigation shed and a chemical shed.

Zeals Vineyard also has three large storage dams and substantial water entitlements.

The Mudgee Wine Region has a strong viticultural history dating back to the 1850s and is home to a number of world-renowned wineries and family-run boutique operations.

Zeals Vineyard is located close to leading wineries including Lowes Family Wine Co, Huntington Estate, Craigmoor, Gooree Park and Robert Stein Winery. 

Zeals Vineyard is being offered for sale by Expression of Interest.
