Former investment banker Alexander Hall took a sabbatical from banking to work on his stepfather’s vineyards in New Zealand 15 years ago. A year later he was living in Bordeaux, ‘pruning vines, cleaning tanks and sitting on tractors’ — an experience which afforded him unmatched knowledge and contacts in the region. Hall set up Vineyard Intelligence to offer on and off market property search in France, as well as audit, evaluation and negotiation services and post-acquisition advice. ‘I am very honest with my clients,’ he states. ‘The caveat is, it’s farming, you may get hail or frost, and so it has an unpredictability that certain other business don’t have.’
