Quick reference for purchasers and sellers of wine-making property


The purpose of this quick reference is to highlight some key steps in the process of purchasing or selling a wine-making property.

Whether it be the voluntary or forced sale of a family property, the sale of a line of business by a group, for business or personal pleasure, for asset diversification purposes, or a purchase on a whim, there are many situations in which people from all, and often opposing, walks of life come face-to-face in a highly professional and regulated environment.

These apparent contradictions and specific circumstances where emotions often run high make the sale or purchase of a wine estate quite different from any other transaction.
