Imagine if you would buy a vineyard in France!

It is important to choose carefully if you want to become a vineyard owner in France. If you are not staggeringly rich of course. One hectare of vineyard that is not in an appellation costs a reasonable (?) 14,200 euros.

On average, the appellation vineyards cost 147,300 euros per hectare. But here too you can find much cheaper if you choose appellations that are not so prestigious. The most expensive ones are of course in Bordeaux, Burgundy and not least in Provence (and Champagne). There the prices continue to rise and rise. An effect of the world’s craze for rosé wine. And luxury vacation homes.

Last year, in 2018, 8,750 vineyard transactions were concluded in France at a price of a total of 844 million euro. 6,800 hectares changed owners. Thus, an average cost of 124,118 euro/ha. This acreage is not so much considering that France has a bit more than 700,000 hectares of vineyards. 1% of the land. But this is what it is approximately every year.
