Book, stay, enjoy. That's

So you'd like a chance to get into the wine and hospitality industries in Australia

So you've always liked the idea of being involved in the wine industry, maybe running some accommodation on the side?

Pruning vines in the middle of winter doesn't worry you; or you can afford someone to do the grunt work, and vagaries of the seasons are to be welcomed rather than feared. You'd love to deal with the public on a daily basis.

There are two very different wine businesses on sale right now; one for a family, perhaps, the other for a hospitality industry high flyer with money to invest.

The boutique Every Man and His Dog vineyard and cellar door (top) in Tasmania's Coal River Valley - formerly known as Palmyra - just hit the market and might prove a magnet for life style seekers.

The 2.35 hectare property combines house, vineyard, cellar door operation and B&B just a short drive from the hamlet of Richmond and under 20 minutes from Hobart.

It is being sold as offering "a great and enjoyable lifestyle with income from different sources - on-line sales, wholesale, cellar door retail, functions, weddings, merchandise and accommodation".

It is for sale by expressions of interest through Knight Frank Tasmania.

In the Adelaide Hills, meanwhile, a historic Clarendon estate needs to be restored to its former glory.

The Old Clarendon Winery (above) has been listed for sale via expressions of interest by Ray White Port Adelaide.

Spanning 2.27ha overlooking the Onkaparinga River, it includes heritage-listed buildings constructed around 1859 that formed part of the first winery in Clarendon, with 25 apartments that offer additional income.

The winery is no longer operational but the bones are there.

There are three function or dining areas, two gardens for weddings, a terrace and additional outdoor entertainment area for dining, offices, two industrial kitchens and the winery.

The property is being sold “as is” so including all the plant and dining equipment on site, as well as vats and about 180,000 litres of wine.

The expressions of interest campaign closes on September 27.
