Not everyone has 50 or 100 million euros to spend on a vineyard (as was recently the price tag for Ruffino). One of the most cost efficient districts in which to buy a vineyard is the Languedoc in the south of France. Although they make some outstanding wines there today the land prices are often moderate. And weather is nice!
Anders Åberg is a Swede that, we guess, didn’t have 50 million euros so he decided to buy a vineyard in the Languedoc: Domaine la Rabidote. Before he was bitten by the wine bug he was a film producer and film maker so it was probably a natural thing for him to do to make a film about his wine adventure.
In the film he tells the story from the start, how he had the idea, to the finish, when he is struggling to make wine in is not-yet-own cellar. Fascinating story. Watch it here:
