We are now well into the grape-picking season and many of us will be dreaming of owning a vineyard in time for next summer.
Here we pick three properties with vineyards …
The dream property for many: a nicely renovated four-bed farmhouse attached to a hobby vineyard in a village of the sun-drenched Languedoc. The local vigneronne even does all the work for you if you just want to lie by the pool.
For those that wish to enjoy living in a terrific wine region but don’t want a vineyard of their own, this is a beautiful five-bed home (with annexe for gites) near Tours in the Loire valley, easily reached by train, plane or car.
This is a real corker: a lovely renovated four-bedroom stone house 25 minutes from St Emilion in the heart of the Bordeaux wine region – that comes with a profitable vineyard and distribution network. So your new adventure as a wine producer can start from day one!
