Superb Lifestyle Opportunity + Boutique Wine Business

SOLD - This listing was sold in September 2016
Situated in the heart of picturesque French Farm, is the distinctive and unique Valley Road Vineyard, including a 3 bedroom home, separate self catering accommodation area, licensed wine tasting room with cellar door for direct sales of the French Peak Wine brand.

The beautiful setting, with a magnificent outlook over Akaroa Harbour, oozes tranquillity and superb lifestyle.

The home is located on an elevated site, is completely private, and is set amongst an appealing mature landscaped garden comprising predominantly native species. As a result, birdlife is abundant and spectacular.

The other main building - the timber frame barn - contains the self-catering attic accommodation, wine tasting room, vineyard office, workshop and cool storage area. There is a covered walkway along the back with a laundry area. At the front is a 3 bay garage/implement shed.

The mature and fully producing vineyard is planted in Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay. The vineyard lies to the north on gently sloping land. Grapes produced are utilised in the French Peak wine brand, which forms part of the overall sale package.

The quality wines produced have gained a strong following, are increasingly sought after through New Zealand outlets, and by the increasing numbers of visitors to the property, many of whom are visiting the Akaroa area from overseas. (For wine information visit

A large 2 bay shed is situated at the centre of the vineyard, used to store the tractor, full set of over-row nets, along with vineyard plant and equipment. Adjacent is a hard pad for the two water tanks - fresh and rain water - as well as a secure chemical shed. There is a full range of vineyard plant and equipment available, as well as a refrigerated secure container for wine storage.

A complete enterprise combining wine and accommodation business, with an unequalled and special environment, resulting in a superb lifestyle opportunity, within easy reach of Christchurch and Akaroa.
