Evans & Tate has completed the sale and leaseback of the 455-hectare Cocoparra Vineyard, the company announced last week.

The property has been sold to the Beston Wine Industry Trust for A$8.1m and will be leased from Beston for 10 years with two renewal periods of five years each.

Franklin Tate, E&T CEO and chairman, said: "Access to the fruit on this property is strategically important to Evans & Tate but owning the property is not. The sale and leaseback was identified by Evans & Tate management prior to the Cranswick acquisition."

The company has also sold two other smaller vineyards recently. Wrattonbully Vineyard, a 34ha in the south east of South Australia was sold to AJ & PA McBride for A$2.2m. The 80ha Loxton Vineyard was sold to the Cockatoo Ridge Wines subsidiary Playford Wine Holdings for A$2.4m.

The funds form the sale of these two properties will be used to retire debt, the company said.
