Vineyard for sale Umbria Italy
Very nice well-established wine business which has the opportunity to not only increase the vineyard size and therefore increase the amount of wine produced but also the possibiltyof using part (or all) of the farmhouse for holiday accommodation.
The farmhouse (440 sqm – 4,734 sqft) was built at the end of the 19th century using stones and tuff bricks. Originally, the ground floor housed stables and storage rooms while an external staircase led to the living quarters on the first floor. Renovations allowed the conversion of the ground floors into living accommodation, and the farmhouse is now organized as follows:
– Ground floor: entrance with sitting room, kitchen with fireplace, living room with fireplace, two bedrooms (which could be joined into a single ampler suite) and a bathroom;
– First floor: four double bedrooms, one of which has a private bathroom and terrace on the courtyard and another with balcony, single bedroom and two bathrooms.
A few metres from the farmhouse there is a small two-story building, the upper floor of which is used as a boutique shop (20 sqm – 215 sqft) where home produced products from the estate are sold, while the lower level is used for storage.
In front of the farmhouse is a shed (70 sqm – 753 sqft) used as for vehicles and tools needed to work the land.
The wine cellar (400 sqm – 4,304 sqft) is made up of an above ground section (split in turn in two further parts) with the offices of the business and a bathroom, a wine tasting room, the vinification rooms, a dressing room for the workers with a bathroom and a lab. The underground section has a constant and optimal temperature and is almost entirely used for the barrels and the barriques. The rooftop of the building houses a photovoltaic system (20 kWh).
The estate has approximately 16 hectares of land. The vineyard (5.6 ha – 13.8 ac) is planted with many varieties of grape and is capable of producing each year up to 20.000 bottles of wine.
A small olive grove (0.4 ha – 1 ac) is made up of approx. 60 trees which were planted between the 1960s and 2000s and capable of yielding a small quantity of oil, mostly for private use.
The arable land (6 ha – 14.8 ac) is split into two areas, one of which much bigger than the other. The bigger section (almost 5 ha – 12.3 ac) is located adjacent to the vineyard and could be used to plant further vines.
The remaining surface area (approx. 4 ha – 9.9 ac) is covered by woodland, unused land, garden and fruit orchard and there would be (if wanted) enough space to build a swimming pool.

The estate is well established with a yearly production of approximately 20,000 bottles of nice IGP wines. The plantation of the first vines (2004) produced its fruits two years later with the first vintage (2006). Since then, the estate has grown bigger with the plantation of other vines and the construction of the cellar in 2011.
The farmhouse could be used as a base for a holiday accommodation business, ideal for wine holiday tourism.
Almost 5 hectares of arable land (located next to the existing vineyard) could be easily converted into vineyard use with the plantation of new vines and a following increase of the yearly production.
All in all a very good investment opportunity.
