How does one go about acquiring a vineyard?
Of course, not just anyone can acquire a vineyard. Between the cost of buildings, vineyards, property and land, wine cellar, equipment, and stocks, the entry ticket is estimated at between 2 and 4 million euros according to industry specialists. However, the prices of each asset vary according to the region in which the vineyard is located. For example, in the Var or Provence, buildings alone can be worth up to 80% of the property price, whereas in Bordeaux, it’s the land that is more valuable.
There are however properties that sell for less than that. Starting at 800,000 euros, it is possible to acquire a small vineyard covering over 12 acres. In this context, it is no longer possible to talk about starting a wine-growing business, but rather a passion-driven purchase that will not necessarily be oriented towards profitability. It is good to keep in mind that a vineyard is essentially a company and a real estate investment, which in turn, involves a certain amount of administrative and managerial activities that should be taken into account.
