Chateau Soutard for Sale
We've mentioned some California and Oregon wineries for sale before but the chance to own a French grand cru chateau is rare indeed. Decanter reports that the St-Emilion grand cru classé Château Soutard is for sale. The Chateau has been owned by the des Ligneris family since 1836 and is worth around 35 million euros. It sounds like the family isn't any great hurry to rid themselves of the vineyard but the process is definitely underway. While some French vinters may be facing trouble, houses with a long history, like Chateau Soutard will hopefully always thrive.
