YOUR NEW ZEALAND VINEYARD
Owning a New Zealand vineyard provides you with a variety of lifestyle opportunities, and the flexibility to adapt the business to changing preferences with age or personal circumstances. Vineyards also offer great opportunities for financial gain through land development.
We can assist you to set up your New Zealand vineyard in different ways:
You can buy a vineyard, keep it running with a manager, and move to New Zealand whenever you choose, for example when you retire.
An alternative is to buy a New Zealand vineyard, move now, and start enjoying a rural lifestyle.
We can advise you about the best vineyard option to suit your preferences, including location, as there are vineyards of all sizes across both islands of New Zealand.
TYPES OF VINEYARD OPERATION
One option is to purchase a vineyard just for growing grapes for sale to an independent winemaker.
An alternative is to develop your New Zealand vineyard for the production, marketing and sale of your own wine. You might choose to add hospitality, such as a restaurant or a wine bar for tourism and for hosting events.
Another possibility is to subdivide, market, and sell portions of your land.
We can source and engage competent property managers, land developers, contractors, and winemakers to help optimise your vineyard investment.
The New Zealand winegrowing industry is in a unique position to attract beginners and a variety of investors. It’s not uncommon for vineyard owners to be passive in the day-to-day dealings while a manager runs the business.
A vineyard manager takes care of all the operations and daily tasks including spraying, pruning, quality control, staff management – even budgeting. Because they manage multiple vineyards, usually under a larger management company, they’re able to keep costs low.
It’s easy for us to arrange for your vineyard to be managed on your behalf.
