Kerry Vale vineyard is located off the A489 between Bishops Castle and Machynlleth, the A489 being a principle route to Machynlleth, the coast and Snowdonia. It is 26 miles from the County town of Shrewsbury, 25 miles from the popular historic market town of Ludlow and 55 miles from the M54 / M6 Junction. It is 1.5 miles from the picturesque village of Church stoke and 3 miles away from the charming historical town of Montgomery. The nearest railway station is at Welshpool, 12 miles away.
It is situated on the south-facing valley floor of the river Caebitra close to where it joins the Vale of Kerry. To the east of the property is the popular South Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and the east lie the striking rural hills and market towns of Powys. Offa’s Dyke long distance footpath passes close to the property.
Notable independent schools of Shropshire and Worcestershire are within reach and the area is a popular tourist destination and through-route to Mid Wales and Snowdonia. It is also within easy reach of the West Midlands via the M54/A5 and is a 26 mile drive (c.45 minutes) away from the county town of Shrewsbury.
Surrounded by rolling Shropshire and Welsh hills and popular historic market towns, the property is ideally suited to provide an unparalleled lifestyle property of a kind that very rarely comes to the market.
Kerry Vale Vineyard is on the site of a Roman fort which far from detracting from the property’s appeal enhances the sense of history at the site and artefacts displayed in the shop add a layer of interest to visitors’ experiences. Most recently, the site accommodated a smithy whose water was drawn from a well, now displayed in the floor of the shop.
The house and shop were built in 2011 when the vines were planted and the current owners have spent the subsequent years developing the property into a most attractive, productive and award-winning family-run vineyard to visit.
Its new owners will be able to step into a thriving family business and take the property forward into its next chapter.
The vineyard has approximately 6000 vines which cover 5 acres, these include varieties of Rondo (2,000 vines producing red wine), Solaris (3,000 vines producing white wine) and Phoenix (1,000 vines producing sparkling white wine) which have been carefully selected to suite the ground and location. The current owners have produced award winning wines, the most celebrated being the Shropshire Lady which has won many accolades including the silver medal at the English & Welsh Wine of the Year awards 2016 as well as the Great Taste Awards 2015.
The vines are pruned on the well-known and professionally installed Double Guyot trellising system which is widely used in the distinguished wine regions of Bordeaux and California. The system trains the vines to adopt an “M” shape. During February and March the vines require pruning ready for summer growth and from June onwards they need thinning and tucking in. The grape harvest usually starts in late September and can continue until November. The current owners currently operate a successful volunteer harvest with regular guests that celebrates and marks the annual event in a most enjoyable and rewarding way. The property is closed to customers during the winter.
The current owners deliver the harvested grapes to a nearby producer who oversees the fermentation and bottling and labelling process, placing the finer points of the enterprise in expert hands. The current owners’ family will be happy to remain on-hand as consultant advisers and to make all the introductions needed to help the new owners continue the success of Kerry Vale.
Services The buildings are heated by air sourced heat pumps and LPG. The property is connected to mains electricity, water, telephone (up to 52mbps download available) and drains to private septic tanks.
