Now Available: The Basque Vineyard in British Columbia
An Opportunity to Create and Develop the Winery of Your Dreams
The Basque Vineyard, BC is a stunning 12.23-acre property located on the beautiful sloping hillsides of the Basque region section of the South Caribou overlooking the majestic Thompson River Valley. Its southern exposure, sunny arid climate and gently slopping hills makes it a more fertile environment for grape cultivation than the wine country in Spain and France. The potential of this area is limitless.
Located south of Ashcroft, a 20-minute drive from the downtown area, this once-thriving vineyard produced Grapes used by summer lands: Sumac Ridge Estate winery in 1982. With well-draining sandy loam soil and south-facing windswept slopes and a newly installed water system for irrigation plus a distribution center that has a purification system for drinking and domestic consumption, these are the perfect accompaniments to establish a successful vineyard.
The water pump connects to the water distribution center then up to the highest point of the slope which is prepared to supply gravity-fed irrigation to the whole property (all this without disturbing the topsoil).
In addition to the magnificent landscape and Thompson river views, there is a 1200 square foot 2 bedroom one bath rancher, that boasts Italian ceramic tile flooring, open floor plan, laundry room, sunroom, and Jacuzzi bathtub. As well as a cozy fireplace to warm up to on those crisp autumn evenings where you can sit and enjoy the views.
The potential to develop your winery can be effortless; the current owner has had numerous studies completed, from soil suitability, establishing a drip irrigation system as well as consulting with experts to determine which strains of Grapes would do the best with the properties conditions.
The ability to expand your vineyard is also a possibility as the adjacent 31.01-acre property is negotiable. Basque Vineyard BC, Inc. (the managing company of both properties) is also for sale should the buyer needs to acquire it for immigration purposes. Let your imagination run and create the winery of your dreams!
