Top 10 vineyard investments19th April, 2012 by db_staff
The Languedoc countryside around the town of Carcassone offer potential long term investment options.
The climate, topography and terrain-types of Languedoc Roussillon are surprisingly diverse. The foothills of the Pyrénées, Montaignes Noirs and the Cévennes combine the best of both worlds – warm temperatures and beautiful scenery.
The notion that anyone might buy Languedoc vineyards as an investment may seem optimistic. But hope, for the Languedoc, lies in a new generation of wines produced not on the plain but in the hills.
The investment potential may be a little premature – the 2011 harvest in the Languedoc led to a grape price rise to a 10-year high.
However, it seems plausible that the best sites of the Languedoc might, a few decades hence, produce red wines to challenge the best from Côte Rôtie, Cornas and Châteauneuf.
