No, this isn’t France or Italy, but a well-maintained award-winning vineyard on the Somerset Levels at Curload, near Stoke St Gregory.
The vineyard, along with pastureland and woodland is on the market at a guide price of £75,000-£100,000 with land specialists Greenslade Taylor Hunt. The closing date for tenders is 12 noon on Tuesday, October 27.
In total the land extends to 5.42 acres and in addition to the vineyard there is around three acres of amenity pasture and an acre of willow woodland.
The vineyard was established 30 years ago and in an average year produces approximately 1500 bottles of good English wine.
There are approximately 450 vines – a mixture of Seyval (80%) and Solaris (20%) plus some original Muller Thergau. The grapes are all suited to the British climate and produce a pleasing dry white wine.
When Jill and Chris Mogford took the vineyard over around six years ago it was overgrown, but with tender care they have ensured it has flourished. In 2017 they won a bronze award for their still white wine.
Jill said: “It’s a peaceful little haven. We will be sorry to see it go.”
A lovely summerhouse on site provides the ideal spot to soak up the sun and enjoy the fruits of the grape harvest.
The land enjoys good access off Curload Road. Mains water is connected. As well as the timber summerhouse with WC there are various storage buildings on site.
