Virtual Wine Makers

If you have always wanted to own a vineyard in France but didn’t have enough time to look after the harvest or the blending www.mesvignes.com  has come up with a clever solution. Starting at 194 euros you can become the proud owner of some vines.

Owners receive regular updates so that they can follow the progression of the harvest. Within 24 months of purchase they receive their share of the bottles with their name on the label at home.

Stephane Queralt who came up with the idea of having virtual winegrowers is now working with various domaines throughout France. Depending on your budget and your taste buds you can select estates in Alsace, Champagne, Bordeaux, Burgundy, Bandol or Chateauneuf du Pape. You then decide how many vines you want 6, 12, 24 or 36. If you plan to be in France next fall you can add a workshop to your online purchase and plan on taking part in the harvesting or blending.

Great gift idea for the holidays.
