Maxwell-Baynes is the market leader in the Bordeaux region of
South West France. Founded 10 years ago by Karin Maxwell and
Michael Baynes, their luxury real estate division is Maxwell-Baynes
Real Estate while their specialist vineyard company is
Vineyards-Bordeaux. Bordeaux was voted number one best city
in the world, in 2017 and has 11 Michelin starred restaurants,
elevating it to the top gastronomic destination in France and
beating out both Paris and Lyons for the top slot.
With the ski resorts of the Pyrenees 2 hours south and the famous beaches of Cap Ferret an hour west, Bordeaux has it all.
A chateau residence amongst the vines or in the countryside can
be purchased for about a million Euros and a St. Emilion Grand
Cru vineyard estate can be bought for about 5 million Euros. Or
perhaps a hunting estate near Cognac, an elegant townhouse
in the city of Bordeaux or a beach villa – the real estate here is
varied and beautiful.
Vineyards-Bordeaux is an enthusiastic vineyard and winery
investment advisory company specializing in the management
of vineyard transactions. With its team located near the wine
capital of Saint Emilion, it is situated in the heart of the “right
bank” of the Bordeaux appellation system, but its team covers
all 57 Bordeaux appellations, including the Medoc, the Graves,
Sauternes, Saint Emilion, and Pomerol, to name a few.
The Bordeaux vineyard market is relatively small with between 25
and 30 transactions taking place each year for Chateau vineyard
businesses across all Bordeaux appellations. A Bordeaux vineyard
can be purchased for under 1 million Euros but prices for the
world famous chateau can run to several hundreds of millions of
Euros. In 2016, there were 28 chateau vineyards sold. The team
at Vineyards-Bordeaux was responsible for 10 of them, holding
them as the market leader, overseeing between 30% and 40% of
the Bordeaux vineyard transactions each year.
