If you’ve ever dreamt of owning your own winery or waking up to sweeping views of mature vineyards, now’s your chance. The picturesque Panton Hill Winery, just 45 minutes away from central Melbourne, is up for grabs.
“This is a rare opportunity to own a thriving award-winning winery and live on a picturesque property,” said agent Sam Bottari from Woodards. The property is not only visually stunning but also offers multiple revenue streams including wine tastings, weddings, photo shoots and functions. “The potential to offer more is there,” Bottari added.
The estate boasts a unique collection of Sandstone buildings rich in history and architectural detail. Built with recycled materials that date as far back as the 16th century, the property provides a serene, Tuscan-like environment. The only giveaway that you’re still in Australia might be the kangaroos spotted on the neighbouring hillside.
A highlight of the property is its main tasting and function hall, built with Panton Hill sandstone and Grampians white sandstone from the heritage-listed Halls Gap Quarry. It’s a versatile space that can accommodate a variety of events. The lower floors are made from centuries-old Welsh slate blocks that originally arrived in Australia as ship ballast.
The property also features a main residence built of heavy, recycled timbers and thick Panton Hill sandstone walls. A special touch is a 16th-century church window from Southern Belgium that graces a wall between the kitchen and formal living area.
The estate comes complete with two vineyard areas planted with varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and a small quantity of Sauvignon Blanc. The property also houses a separate stone building featuring a winery/cellar door kitchen, fitted with top-of-the-line equipment including an Italian gas pizza oven and a heavy-duty Hobart dishwasher.

Irrigation for the vineyards is provided by two major dams on the property, which also serve as habitats for native plants and marsupials. In addition to the vineyards, the property boasts various fruit-bearing trees and a lily pad-studded dam, offering a bounty of natural resources.
For those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of city life without sacrificing convenience or luxury, the Panton Hill Winery provides an idyllic yet practical sanctuary. It’s not just a property for sale; it’s an opportunity to own a piece of paradise.
