“Without Catherine, the venture would not have been possible! We will be eternally grateful to this very professional person who accompanied us to the end both administratively and emotionally. She was an asset at every stage of the purchase, a great advisor, a great intermediary between us and the sellers and with the added bonus of good advice on viticulture and vinification. Thank you Catherine, we look forward to tasting our first wine with you!”
Anne-Marie et Jean-Luc Husson – Domaine Croix Rousse, Puget-Ville
We were a little scared to ask Adam Dakin to help us sell our two wineries as he seemed to be on his own without any support but that was to misunderstand the man.
Adam Dakin is a true professional who helps you with everything before, during and especially after the sale of your wine estate.
During the difficult period of Covid when it was difficult to find future buyers, Adam supported us and found the future owners.
This in itself was difficult but it is his determination to help you all the way that sets him apart. After every sale there are many questions and Adam was always there to help us.
You won’t find many estate agents or men like him – as our solicitor told us “I have rarely worked with anyone so professional”.

“In the summer of 2018 we decided to sell our vineyard in order to consolidate our affairs. We met with Michael and Adam at the vineyard in November of 2018. We were immediately impressed with their undoubted knowledge, expertise, professionalism and enthusiasm. At all times we felt we were their most important client. They produced superb marketing material and, due no doubt to their combined network, within three months not only had they shown the vineyard a number of times but indeed had found a buyer. At all times Michael and Adam kept us fully informed as to their progress. Most importantly, they were perfectly honest in terms of the fair value we should expect and this proved to be the case. I cannot speak too highly of Michael and Adam, as professionals and as gentlemen and have no hesitation in recommending them to any potential client or any business transaction.”
Christopher Wetherhill, F.C.A, C.A. – Domaine de l’Amour
“Adam assisted us through the purchase of Chateau du Deffends in 2018. From the beginning of our search to the end of the transaction, his knowledge of vine growing and wine-making, through to the legal aspects of buying and running a vineyard property proved to be extensive and invaluable. Since completing the purchase, he continues to be a reliable and valued source of assistance and advice and is a pleasure to deal with. I have no hesitation in highly recommending his services.”

“I enlisted the help of Wine Objectives in 2018 for the purchase of Domaine du Météore. Adam assisted us in every step of the acquisition, including the recruitment of our technical director. He was unstinting in his efforts, showing me a large number of properties but also being very attuned to my needs and preferences. He was also immensely helpful in assisting with the funding and legal aspects. I will have no hesitation in calling on his services in the future, and can only thoroughly recommend him for his attention to detail and his loyal and candid approach.”

“Different brokers working different ! I met Adam Dakin in 2012 when I purchased a vineyard in south of France. He helped me with the different steps throughout the transaction and I also got help with advice on the various consultants I needed for my business. It was not just a purchase and then settlement of the commission to the broker but also advice in the long term. How long can the consultancy continue? I contacted Adam in 2016, four years after my purchase, for some advice and even then he helped me with contacts which I appreciated very much. This kind of broker is very unusual these days. Many thanks and full respect to Adam for his work, and I can recommend him to others who are looking for a vineyard.”
Bruno Ohlzon – Gérant du Domaine d’Escapat
“In 2015, Adam assisted us with the purchase of our property in the Rhône Valley. We then kept him on as an adviser to aid us with the launch of our project and to help build our team. Alongside his wide-ranging technical expertise, Adam won us over with his constructive attitude, his integrity, his strong work ethics and his efficiency. I cannot but recommend him to anybody looking for the support of an honest intermediary with an objective commercial attitude.”
Christian Guilloux,Le Mas des Vignes
“Adam advised me on the acquisition of Domaine Saint Hilaire over a 6 month period in 2015. Based on my experience of this project I can thoroughly recommend Adam to anyone in my situation. Not only did he provide good advice he also helped with the purchase in many ways which were above and beyond the call of duty. It was a pleasure working with him and I am sure we will stay in touch.”
Nick Kent, Domaine Saint Hilaire, Montagnac
“Our company has used Adam’s services for nearly 20 years and we have always been delighted with his efficiency. We will not hesitate to call on his services in the future as we fully believe in his entrepreneurial abilities and his loyalty in conducting business affairs.”
Eric Hosteins Louis Vialard SAS
“What Adam doesn’t know about purchasing or marketing vineyards in the South of France isn’t worth knowing. It is fantastic to work with an agent who adopts a commercially unbiased stance. His technical expertise in viticulture was invaluable in purchasing Château Constantin and he literally turned every stone during the purchase. It’s also still a great pleasure to catch up with him !”
William Chase Château Constantin, Luberon, 2017
