Wine Chateau, Anyone?
A “majestic” Yarra Valley chateau, built on the site of Victoria’s first vineyard, has hit the market. Built in 1854, Chateau Yering, a historic 32-room homestead offering luxury accommodation, has been listed for sale by HTL Property and Burgess Rawson. The property has price expectations of about $20m. It comes after Chinese millionaire William Wei paid $14m for the 100ha property in 2014.
The heritage-listed house is on the site of Victoria’s first vineyard, with the first vines planted in 1838. The Chateau Yering Hotel was reborn in 1997 as a fivestar property. Home to Eleonore’s Restaurant, it’s also a popular venue for conferences and weddings.
