10 of the most stunning wine estate listings on Airbnb

In the age of the internet no corner of the world is off limits, and it’s now easier than ever for a wine estate to offer up a slice of vinous paradise to the adventurous traveller

Since Airbnb launched in 2008, it has become easy to browse and book any number of boutique, unique and luxury retreats around the world. From sleek airstream trailers, penthouse suites, seaside slumbers, luxurious tree houses and wooded retreats, Airbnb has the lot.

The opportunities afforded by the platform to the wine industry have not been missed. As the interest in and potential for wine tourism continues to grow, an increasing number of wineries, big and small, are choosing not to open a hotel or formal hospitality business as such, but simply offer up a slice of their estate for rent.

This shift in how we approach travel has not only enabled homeowners the chance to more easily generate a second income stream, but the adventurous traveller to peek inside some of the most luxurious and picturesque wine estates that might previously have been off limits.

Whether its a 16th century chateau surrounded by vines, a mountain-top cabin, or a modern apartment on a working wine estate, there is every kind of accommodation available to the adventurous wine-loving trailer.

We have trawled Airbnb to highlight some of the most spectacular, yet affordable, vineyard settings that are currently available on the site.
