Anyone had any experience of buying shares in a vineyard?

I saw a piece on the naked wines website today about owning a share of a
French vineyard... but it turns out you only rent a bit of a vineyard for
3 years for £400 a share - and you get all the wine from your patch. Not
bad.

This lot actually sell you some acres of vineyard:

Sounds good.

Has anyone here actually bought a share in a vineyard?

If so how is it going?

It sounds like something that has a huge potential to go badly wrong,
and you could end up with nothing.

You're leasing a piece of land in a vineyard in a remote place that
you know nothing about, so how do you know what's really going on
there unless you're there to keep an eye on it? How do you know you
won't be given a patch of infertile land in an area that seldom sees
the sun and has never produced a quality grape? So the £400 gets you a
parcel of land, but then what. Who will plant the vines, maintain
them, harvest the grapes, and produce the wine, and how much will all
that cost on top?

Smells of ostrich to me. Take care.

A few years back Ostrich farms were the investment vehicle of the
future. It's too late investing now that Ostrich meat is the most
popular dish in the UK and sold by every butcher and supermarket.
