18 HA VINEYARD IN THE DUCHE D’UZES
RENOWNED WINE ESTATE
This property is situated not far from an attractive village in the foothills of the Cevennes. It is easily accessed and is located just 20 minutes from a town of 40 000 inhabitants. The property is one of the most highly respected vineyard estates of the AOP Duché d’Uzès.
Located close to a country road, in order to develop onsite sales, the housing and farm buildings were constructed in 2001 and stand at the heart of a 14 ha vineyard plot. The 55 m² staff apartment is located above the offices and enjoys beautiful views over the surrounding vineyard. The apartment is in a good general state of repair and permits staff to be housed in excellent conditions.
The winery covers approximately 500 m² over 3 levels, allowing winery work to be carried out with the use of gravity, thus enabling a gentler handling of grapes and wine.
With a total capacity of 2 400 hl in stainless steel, cement and fiberglass tanks, the winery is modern and very well equipped: tubular heat exchange system, crusher/de-stemmer, pneumatic press, temperature control…
The vineyard spreads over 18 ha of high quality rolled pebble soil.
The vineyard is meticulously maintained and almost entirely planted with noble varieties. The 18 ha are fully equipped with drip irrigation, including 12 probe sensors which are linked up to software technology, thus ensuring perfect control of the water requirements of the vineyard.
Currently approximately 50 to 60% of production is sold in bottle for an average turnover of around 250K€. Around 30% of turnover is generated from onsite sales.
It should be noted that an installation of solar panels will generate a guaranteed revenue of 23K€ for the future owner over the next 10 years, accounting for a total of 230K€ which impacts on the sale price of the property.
Price guide: 1 300 000 euros net vendor, stock and standing crop to be added.
Agency fees of 5% net of VAT and legal costs to be added.
