Cahors ?attractive 21 ha vineyard estate at the heart of Quercy
Located at 15 km from the town of Cahors, the property is set on the edge of a charming local village at the heart of the Cahors appellation.
The housing and farm buildings overlook the 17 contiguous hectares that constitute the estate and which roll gently down from the edge of the village in a setting free from all disturbance.
The main house covers 280 m2 of living space over one single level. The house is currently divided into two apartments but could easily be renovated to create a single large house. The rooms are spacious and light with high ceilings.
The basement includes a 140 m2 vaulted cellar. The housing includes a guest house in need of renovation in the garden which would offer the possibility of a small wine-tourism activity.
The winery is located close to the main house. With a total capacity of over 2 000 hl in stainless steel and fibreglass tanks, the winery is fully
equipped however certain articles require renewal (purchase of pneumatic press?).
The winery buildings include an attractive tasting room/shop and bottle storage. Farm equipment is stored away from the elements in a large hangar which leads on from the winery. The farm equipment is complete and well maintained.
The property covers 17 contiguous hectares, of which 13 ha are planted with vines classed entirely in Aop Cahors. 3 ha of land would take the potential vineyard area to approximately 16 ha. The estate sets itself apart in the appellation by its rare and unique terroir. Indeed it is one of the sole estates with basalt and siliceous earth, whereas the rest of the appellation lies on limestone soil. The vines are well maintained and fully trellised. The varietals planted correspond to the appellation requirements.
Annual yields are around 50 hl/ha.
The majority of production is currently sold through local wholesalers. A small part of the harvest is sold in bottle and Bag-in-Box.
