The world’s premier wine-producing region, Bordeaux is revered not only for its prestigious viticultural heritage and rich history, but also for its tranquil setting, high quality of life, Neoclassical architecture, and its many magnificent vineyard estates.
In 2014, the châteaux vineyards market enjoyed sustained interest from China, currently the largest export market for Bordeaux wine. International buyers have been attracted by the region’s favorable buying conditions, such as no restrictions on overseas ownership and a streamlined sales process that takes just six months to complete. The market, which comprises historic 18th-century architecture and château vineyard estates, is also affordable, offering some of the best value in France. The international presence, however, remains small compared to domestic investors, and predominantly comprises second-home buyers.
