If you are thinking of becoming a wine grower in France, here are some important figures just announced by SAFER, a government organization. In 2016, the average price for an AOP vineyard was 140,600 euro per hectare. The figure shows no major change since the year before. However, one change has occurred. The prices have gone up for AOP vineyards outside of Champagne and gone down for Champagne vineyards. In Champagne, you had to pay a little over 1.1 million euros in 2016 for one hectare, a decrease of 2.6%. The average price of one hectare of AOP outside of Champagne was 66,500 euros.
If you can live with owning a vineyard that is not an AOP, you will spend much less money. The average price is 13,400 euro per hectare. Comparatively cheap in other words. And because these vineyards are often located in southern France, you will get the sun as a bonus.
