RARE OPPORTUNITY IN AOP FITOU
This property is located in the Fitou appellation at the heart of the Corbieres hills, not far from the village of Durban. The vineyards of Fitou are part of the Narbonnaise Regional Natural Park, an area protected for its cultural and natural ressources.
With a total surface area of 23ha, the property encompasses 18ha of vineyard divided into two plots which are distanced approximately 10mns apart.
The vineyard is well maintained. The Syrah is trellised and the Carignan and Grenache are pruned in “Goblet”. Located at 300m altitude, the excellent dry, barren schist soil allows the different grape varieties to reveal their depth of character. The considerable variation between day and night-time temperatures encourages the development of elegant, fine wines.
Annual yield is around 30hl/ha.
The harvest is contracted for vinification by the local cooperative cellar, according to strict guidelines. To be clear, the grapes are vinified under a provision of service contract and not as a member or shareholder of the cooperative. The land is sold with no cooperative shares.
The sale of the vineyard includes agricultural equipment. The 18ha are farmed by a full-time tractor driver whose work contract is also included in the sale.
Price guide: 350 000 euros, stock and standing crop to be added. Agency fees of 7% net of VAT and legal costs to be added.
