The buyers are French winemakers Alfred Tesseron and his niece Melanie Tesseron.
The Tesseron family owns and operate Château Pontet-Canet, a vineyard and winery in Bordeaux, France.
Williams had been battling severe depression and his wife later disclosed that he was suffering from a debilitating illness. He committed suicide last year.
Since then, his wife of three years Susan Schneider Williams has battled his heirs, Zak, 31, is his son by his first wife, Valerie Velardi, Zelda, 25, and Cody, 23, by his second wife, Marsha Garces Williams, in court.
The estate was Robin’s pride and joy. He built it in 2003 with Portuguese limestone and christened it Villa Sorriso, which translates Villa of Smiles. It was one of the crowning achievements of his long Hollywood career.
But his divorce from Garces in 2010 and his marriage to Schneider in 2011 tuned his finances upside down. So he put the estate on the market in 2012 for a whopping $35 million.
He was forced to pull it off the market after no buyer materialized and and relisted it several months later at $29.9 million. After his suicide, the his children inherited the property and cut the price to $25.9 million and later to $22.9 million.
The sharp decline in price may have less to do with Williams’ shocking death than it has to do with the overall market for vineyards, which has crashed since its heyday a decade ago.
Joe Montana, the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, failed to sell his 9,700-square-foot estate, known as Montana Villa. The price started at $49 million and was later reduced to $35 million before he took it off the market.
Another estate owned by Robert Mondavi hit the market in 2010 at $25.9 million but only sold after an auction. The sale price was reportedly less than $13.9 million.
Williams’ 653-acre estate includes 23 acres of vineyards and olive groves. The luxury property also includes a spring-fed fishing pond, extensive landscaping, tennis court, horse stalls and dazzling infinity-edged pool.
In all, the house measures 20,000 square feet with five bedrooms and eleven baths. It has a picturesque bell tower, a 12-seat theater, billiards room and climate-controlled cellars. The separate guest house includes four additional bedrooms.
