A McLaren Flat estate with its own boutique vineyard is sure to have wine aficionados shouting ‘sip, sip, hooray’.

The sprawling acreage property at 85 Hunt Rd, which produces Shiraz wine, has just hit the market and could be all pours. Er, yours.

About half of the property’s 16.82ha footprint is taken up by income-producing shiraz vines, which were planted in 2000 and are drip irrigated.

Owner Mike Baraiolo, who is also a Raine & Horne real estate agent, said it was an unusual feature to come with a house, even in the world-famous wine region.

“It’s a little boutique vineyard that’s currently professionally managed,” he said.

“We just do the basics and the experts do the other bits and pieces.”

Value aside, the vineyard also offers a picturesque countryside view from the four-bedroom house among the rolling hills.

Mr Baraiolo bought the property almost fours decades ago at the sage advice of his father, who said it would be a good opportunity to get a foot on the property ladder.

Prior to that, another family owned it for even longer.

“In the last 100-plus years, it’s only been in the hands of two families,” Mr Baraiolo said.

He built the four-bedroom, two-bathroom house that sits on the land today about 20 years ago.

“We built it from the ground up and put a fair bit into it,” he said.

“All the improvements around the property are quality.

“There’s some old stables that have been done up and renovated too.”

Along with two grazing paddocks and two holding paddocks currently used for sheep, Mr Baraiolo said the stables could be used for horses.

The property also has several outbuildings on its southern side, including an old dairy building and a 18m x 17m shed or workshop with three-phase power.

The buildings and vineyard can be accessed from Sand Rd, offering privacy to the house.

Mr Baraiolo said the house offered the best of both worlds when it came to seclusion and connectivity.

“It’s very close to town with the Southern Expressway but the property itself is quite private,” he said.

Mr Baraiolo is selling the property for a lifestyle change, with an asking price of $1.6 million, but intends to remain in the area.
