If you cannot buy a vineyard, maybe adoption of a vine can be a (slightly cheaper) alternative? The Mayard family has 43 hectares in Châteauneuf-du-Pape that are organically certified.
You can now adopt some of their 100-year-old grenache vines used for the prestigious cuvée La Crau de Ma Mère. During the year you will get information about work in the vineyard and how your vines are doing. You can then visit Domaine Mayard and pick up six bottles with your name on the back label (or have the bottles sent to you).
Maybe a late-coming Christmas present?
