Dunoon is the main resort along the Cowal Peninsula and is the maritime gateway to the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park. Argyll Vintners is situated in a prominent location on Hillfoot street within Dunoon’s town centre.

The property is a traditional retail unit on ground floor only. There is plentiful free car parking situated near the property. All main fixtures and fittings will be included in the sale, however, our client will be removing some personal ornaments.

The sales area is spacious and well presented with a store room, kitchen area and WC completing the accommodation.  The gross internal area is circa 85 sq m (915 sq ft).

Argyll Vintners has been established for over 16 years and has been run in a hands-on manner by our client during this time. The business predominantly specialises in off sales, and the customer base is made up of locals and tourists mainly, however our client has another income stream wholesaling to local businesses. Argyll Vintners offers a broad selection of wines, local ales, over 200 whiskies and up to 60 gins.

Our client added a food deli to the off-licence business a few years ago.  The deli specialises in cheeses and dry foods, this offering has immensely complimented the off sales business. This shop would be ideal for a first time or experienced buyer, it would suit a partnership team running it in a hands-on manner.

The business has historically generated a net turnover of circa £250,000 from retail and wholesale trade. 

In the last year (to end December 2020),the business has secured net sales of £283,349 effectively from local retail sales as a result of fantastic support from the local community.  We are advised that sales this year to date are up almost £35,000 in comparison to the same period last year.
