How much do I have to pay for a vineyard in France?

The differences in price for one hectare of vineyard in various French wine regions have never been as big as they are today. If you are thinking of becoming a wine producer you should avoid the Grand Cru vineyards of Burgundy. One hectare Grand Cru will cost you over 4 million euros. And besides, they are not often for sale. If you instead settle for a regular AOP Bourgogne the average price will be just over 30,000 euro. A bargain in comparison.

One a hectare in Champagne is a little over a million euros. If you are satisfied with something less prestigious the price goes down significantly. One hectare in Languedoc-Roussillon, for example, costs an average of 11,900 euros. The average price for an AOP in France is 136,000 euros. For vineyards outside AOP the price have increased quite a lot in recent years and are now at 12,700 euro. Read more on and on
