Buying a wine estate, a daring project driven by a love of wine and nature

More and more winegrowers have passed their sixties and are on the verge of retirement. They wish to pass on their vineyard and their vines to passionate people who will be able to continue their work and develop it. You may simply be a wine lover and decide to entrust the production of the wine to the head of the vineyard, the cellar master and his oenologist in order to continue the exploitation as it is, or you may be a new winegrower and wish to learn, to experiment while living in the middle of a vineyard. You wish to make your investment profitable by exploiting the vineyard with various diversifications such as direct and mail order sales, accommodation and catering, creation of cultural and sporting events. Wine tourism is indeed booming and often complements the wine production activity.

Thus, the passion for wine is shared and can keep a whole family busy and alive. Living on a wine estate is an adventure that is part of a thousand-year-old tradition, in the footsteps of the monks, not to mention Bacchus.

The vineyards are spread over 16 major vineyards
