If viticulture is your passion, this could be the opportunity you have been waiting for. Or build and enjoy the lifestyle of the Waipara Wine region and what your allocation of water could do for you. Our vendor has saved the best to last, and you can see why. The property known as Weka Plains is the last development to be presented to the market. It is 43.08 hectares and is situated west of the North Canterbury township of Waipara and the north bank of Weka Creek. Waipara is renowned internationally for its viticulture industry and the many varieties of grapes grown producing many successful vintages year in, and year out resulting in the well-respected labels produced.

In the past the property has grown good greenfeed crops with the aid of some K-line irrigation using the properties allocation of water from the dam. According to Smaps online it appears there are two series of soil types running through the property, these being, Glenmark 1 (deep silt loam) and Rang-32, now Rangitata-32a1 which is described as Waimakariri stony sandy loam.

The main feature is the large 157 mega-litre dam situated on the property. There are 14 shareholders in the company known as Weka Plains Irrigation Company, one being this property. These shareholders all have their own allocation of metered water via an underground main line from the dam to their properties.

The decision by our elderly vendor to offer his holding to the market has not been made lightly so the opportunity is now there for someone to create whatever lifestyle or business they choose. Don't miss this last opportunity of this development - act today!
