French Property: 9 Vineyards for sale in France for every budget

When looking at buying a French winemaking property, you’ll see great differences in prices, depending on not only the prestige of the appellation, health of the vines and amount of them, but also the property that accompanies it, be that a modest cottage or a grand medieval château. In 2020, SAFER (French land agency) recorded over 14,600 hectares of vines sold totalling €861 million. According to average land prices in 2020, the cheapest wineries will be found in the Languedoc-Roussillon area at an average of €12,500 for a hectare of AOP (designation of origin protection status) vines. On the other end of the scale, the Champagne region boasts an average price for AOP wines of €1.102 million per hectare.
