An established vineyard in Dorset has come to market.

Muston Vineyard covers about 44 acres, with 30 acres of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier vines which are in their sixth year and reaching full maturity.

A small harvest has been taken for the last couple of years, producing fine English sparkling wine.

The vineyard in the Piddle Valley also benefits from planning permission for a 10,000 sq ft agricultural building, which was granted in August 2020.

Next to the vineyard is an area of pasture, which has previously been used for grazing livestock, sheltered by a small area of mature woodland.

South West Farmer:

Matilda Stent of Savills southern farm agency team said: “Nestled on a south east facing slope in the Piddle Valley, Muston Vineyard offers a very rare opportunity to purchase an established vineyard at the heart of rural Dorset.

"The vineyard is close to the tourist hotspots of the West Dorset Heritage Coastline and the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and could lend itself to a wine tourism venture, subject to planning.”

Muston Vineyard is a mile from the village of Piddlehinton, and five miles from the county town of Dorchester.

The vineyard is on the market with Savills with a guide price of in excess of £1.2million.
