So you've always dreamed about buying a vineyard and tourism business in Tasmania?

Buying a vineyard and tourism business based on a small farm in Tasmania is a dream for many mainlanders. 

There is a chance to turn that dream into reality with Glendale, hidden among the hills of the Tamar Valley, just placed on the market. 

The property has been operating successfully as Wines For Joanie and comprises timber buildings steeped in history, rolling green hills, small vineyard and untouched natural bush. 


The property currently generates multiple streams of income through its boutique accommodation, cellar door, wedding venue, wine grape production and grazing. 

Historic timber buildings on the 56.7 hectare property include the Stables, built in 1890, the first apple shed constructed in the early 1900s, a cottage built for prisoners of war in World War II, a large apple shed, now a wedding venue, and a recently renovated four-bedroom post-war era family home.

The owners are moving back to Queensland to take care of older family members.

Key features include three separate titles, 1.65 hectares of vines (pinot noir/gruner veltliner) with capacity for further expansion on 10 hectares and 50 hectares of grazing land. 

Plenty of power and water is available on site. 


Glendale is at Sidmouth, approximately 30 minutes from Launceston and around 45 minutes to Launceston airport and Devonport. 

The property is situated along the Tamar Valley Wine Route. 

"We are not necessarily selling the Wine For Joannie brand, as we expect someone with true passion for a business such as this will want to leave their own mark, but it’s an option for the right person," says owner Prue O'Shannessy. 

"We do believe that regardless of the exact future of the business we’ve created a very solid footing and guaranteed income with the work we have done to date.

"We leave this place reluctantly. It has been an incredible chapter of our lives, and although we would have continued happily well into the future, we are needed in Queensland."
