An ideal lifestyle purchase being an established bijou organic vineyard, not far from the Surrey Hills, with a detached residential cabin, small range of stores and about 2.16 acres of established Seyval vines. Situated in a rural location on the outskirts of Warnham.
This certified organic vineyard has been established by the existing owner. About 8 years ago some 2,200 vines of the Seyval grape variety were planted, which are suitable for popular English sparkling wine, and are understood to be capable of producing up to 2,000 bottles.
