The grounds extend to approximately 10 acres and are accessed from the road by a gravelled driveway leading up to the house and on to the car park. A large open store adjoins the car park and houses equipment required to cultivate the vineyard. Behind the car park are the vines themselves, on a south facing slope of Brading Down from which there are panoramic views out to sea. A further 1½ acres of highly productive vineyard, producing some 5000 bottles per year, approximately1½ miles from the main site could be included in the sale by negotiation.
The vineyard is to be sold fully functioning with all the necessary equipment, plus stock at valuation. A full inventory will be available to interested parties. The vineyard is professionally managed by a winemaker, who will be prepared to continue with a new owner, so no previous experience in the wine making trade is necessary.
Adgestone Vineyard produces two different red wines, a rose, three different whites and two sparkling wines. Most of the wine is sold through the vineyards own outlet but it is also supplied to a number of well known local hotels.
Visitors to the vineyard can enjoy a tour of the cellars, wine tasting and a chance to stroll around the vineyard and enjoy the breathtaking views in this area of outstanding natural beauty. With the cafι, serving light meals, cream teas and home made cakes, plus of course wine, Adgestone Vineyard is an attraction suitable for all the family.
