I have a number of clients looking for a French Farm House with Vineyard and wine making facilities. Competition has been stiff of late as there is increased interest in investment in French Vineyards from Asia (Mainland China in particular). French wines (still more so than other old world competitors Italy and Spain) have a real following in Asia and investors are paying a premium for quality vineyards. Still, there are some great deals (particularly in the St. Emilion region near Bordeaux as well as the Languedoc region). Provence with its Cote de Provence rosees is generally more expensive because of its name recognition and location near the Cote D'Azur. But there are deals if you know where to look.
