This vineyard property for sale, only 25 minutes from the centre of Montpellier, offers a particularly enjoyable lifestyle, with its attractive contiguous grounds.The manor house, set in private grounds, is separate from the work unit. The proximity of the motorway and Montpellier airport make the property particularly easy to reach.

The vineyard:
The 21.5 ha vineyard is entirely classed as AOC. The majority of the fields are found on alluvial river stones, comparable to those of Châteauneuf du Pape, which allows the production of a range of premium wines.
Grape Varieties: Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre represent 70 % of the AOC varietal mix. The remaining vineyard is planted with Muscat à Petit Grain (AOP Muscat de Lunel). One part of the vineyard will need to be progressively replanted : 75% of the vines are more than 30 years old.
Average harvest of 700 hl per year, i.e. 90 000 bottles.

Manoir
The early 20th century manor house built by italian artisans in the florentine tradition offers approximately 540 m² of living area with 15 rooms in the middle of wooded grounds of 1.7 ha with a swimming pool needing to be refurbished.
Ground floor: 1 large hall, 1 study, 1 dining room, 1 living room, 1 kitchen, 1 utility room.
First floor: 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.
Second floor: 4 large rooms and vast terrace.
The house has retained its period features: balustrades, tiles and staircases.
Basement: A wine-cellar
