‘Tis the Season for Red Wine: A Vineyard in France’s Bordeaux Region Asks $14.2M
From coast to coast, and across the globe, many swap out their chilled white wines and rosés for red wine once the temperatures drop. And, where better to enjoy a sip of a robust red by the fireplace than at a vineyard in France’s Bordeaux region? Sprawled across 23 hectares, or approximately 56 acres, this estate offers exactly that and is seeking €12.6 million, or approximately $14.2 million.
Situated in the regoin’s AOC (Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée) known as Canon Fronsac, an area that solely produces red wine, this property is perfect for someone who wants to live and breathe the ancient craft of winemaking. Like any historic vineyard, it has a manor amongst its other buildings that are pivotal for running a successful operation.
The 19th-century main house with enchanting terraces clocks in at 370 square meters, approximately 4,000 square feet. While the interiors will need some love, right away one can take in the wine country views and enjoy nature by the private pond and garden. It even has a pool for summer.
Elsewhere on the property, a 3,659-square-foot house also exists purely for accommodation while other structures get down to business. One building holds offices, a tasting room, and a kitchen for wining and dining guests. There’s also an almost 7,900-square-foot storage and workshop building, cellars that span about 7,500 square feet in total, and a barn for agricultural equipment.
Affluent oenophiles may be most interested to learn that the property’s entire stock of wine is also included in the asking price. Bordeaux Sotheby’s International Realty has the rich listing.
