A WINEMAKER'S DREAMS
Bob and Barbara Nixon have called “time” to hang up the secateurs. Their labour of love, Gisborne Peak Winery, is on the market four decades since Bob hand-planted the cool climate vines.
• Established cool climate brand
• Tranquil locale with stunning views
• Four luxury visitor cottages (permit for fifth)
• Self-sufficient off-grid tourist accommodation
• Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Semillon, Riesling & Lagrein, all estate grown
• 90% cellar door sales
• 300 visitors per week
• Event space with balcony, caf, marquee and lakeside deck
The sale of this elevated vineyard on 7.3 hectares, on the city side of the Macedon Ranges, creates a unique opportunity for astute investors or wine enthusiasts. The idyllic lifestyle property with stunning views includes a family residence, tourist accommodation and hospitality event space.
Plantings of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Semillon, Riesling and Lagrein ripen slowly and full of flavour, due to the exceptional cool climate at 535m above sea level.
With 90% of sales from the popular cellar door with caf and wood fire ovens, the convivial winery with gum leaf logo has built a loyal following and continues to attract new markets. Around 300 customers arrive each week, and the Adopt-A-Vine program continues to grow.
The authentic charm of this place built with passion – “a hobby gone mad” – means that people settle in for food, wine and conversation; they meander among the vines or stay a bit longer in the sustainable luxury cottages.
With an enviable location at the start of the ranges, Gisborne Peak Winery is a first stop for wine lovers wandering out of the city. This puts you in the dress circle to build the business with your distinctive style. There is scope to modernise or expand, with a planning permit and liquor licence that allow flexibility.
The unique setting offers a versatile combination of viticulture, tourism and hospitality. You can thrive in the diversity or invest in management of the discrete areas. This is a peak opportunity to bring your dreams to life.
