An established vineyard with views to the South Downs has come to the market on the edge of Bolney village in West Sussex.
Foxhole Vineyard extends to about 30 acres, including 16 acres of well-established vines, with the remaining land down to grass. There is a wooded shaw that runs through the land with a small stream, along with a pond.
The vines were planted in 2008/2009 and are now fully established. The majority are Pinot Noir, with a smaller amount of Pinot Gris and Bacchus vines. In previous harvests, the picked grapes have been used by a highly regarded local wine producer.
The majority of the land is on a gently undulating, south-facing hillside and the altitude varies between 25m and 31m above sea level. It is surrounded by wooded shaws and hedgerows, which give an element of protection for the vines. The vineyards are also deer fenced.
Chris Spofforth, head of Savills’ viticulture team, said: “Foxhole Vineyard offers a rare opportunity for a buyer to enter the rapidly expanding English wine industry and acquire a well-established standalone vineyard.
“As Foxhole is purely a producer of grapes, it would suit an existing producer who needs a reliable source of fruit or a new entrant looking to create their own personal brand without having to start from scratch.’’
Foxhole Vineyard is being marketed by Savills for a guide price of £690,000.
