Book, stay, enjoy. That's

So you'd like to enter the Australian wine industry?

Many people dream of starting a vineyard and making their own wine.

A lot more realistic option is buying an existing vineyard, winery and house - the complete package in one hit.

One such business recently hit the market: ATR Wines in the Grampians region of Victoria.

Winemaker Adam Richardson and journalist Eva Dienel are selling their business to return to Oregon in the US, where Adam met Eva when making wine some years back.

"After buying an empty sheep paddock in 2005, planting the vineyard, building the winery, developing and running the ATR Wines business and tasting room, Adam is ready to retire from winemaking," Eva said in an email to friends and business associates.

The family will move to live in Bend, Oregon, where Eva's parents are based.

So if county vineyard life sounds your thing, here are some links with all the details you might need.

The property covers 43 acres with 18 acres of vines planted to shiraz, riesling, nebbiolo, durif, tannat and viognier.

The location is a 2 1/2-hour train ride or drive from Melbourne.
