Planted on a beautiful south facing slope close to Bruton, the vineyard benefits from good access to the A37 and A303 and is also close to Castle Cary railway station.
The land extends to a total of 13 acres. There are currently six acres under vine, with 4,500 vines comprising of a mixture of Bacchus, Pinot noir, Pinot précoce and Seyval blanc, and the estate offers further planting opportunities.
The estate’s still and sparkling wines, which include a still dry white blend, a 100% Bacchus, a Pinot noir rosé, a sparkling white and a sparkling rosé, are produced by winemakers Steve Brooksbank and Ian Edwards of Furleigh Estate. Over the years, Wraxall’s wines have won awards at numerous international competitions including the International Wine Challenge, the Sommelier Wine Awards and the WineGB Awards.
The property is now on the market for a guide price of £1,250,000 and the ongoing business and stock are available by separate negotiation.
