225-liter French Oak Barrel 

We invite you to taste  our premium Malbec wine directly from the barrel 

You can make your very own 225-liter barrel of Malbec or Chardonnay wine (288 750ml bottles) or partner  for large quantities, e.g. 10,000 liters

And we have access to a Wine Importer and Wine Wholesaler

   

Aziz, Owner of the Chateau Hana Bodega, uses the micro-vinificacion process. He places grapes directly into a new 225-liter barrel. After fermentation, about two months later, the wine is removed 

      

Next the top three barrel hoops are removed to get to the must at the bottom of the barrel 

      

The must is removed and placed into a wine press to have its juice /wine extracted and combined with the wine already removed

This 137 page EBook is a powerful hands-on Must Read for people who are researching the possibility of buying or building a Vineyard in Argentine.

 

Written by two Americans, Tom and Yvonne Phelan, who live in Argentina and the US and between 2008 – 2013 successfully created from raw land a 108-acre vineyard development whose grapes are purchased by prestigious San Rafael Bodegas like the famous champagne maker, Mumms.

 

The Phelan’s Argentine experience was featured in the Wall Street Journal, Financial Times and a Business Insider article published on the Internet in June 2012 that to date has been read by 450,000 people.

Master Winemaker Mauro (l.), Yvonne Phelan and Camilo Aldao (r.) enjoy tasting Wine made from La Vida Buena Malbec grapes harvested in 2013. Camilo and his family own Bodega Bombal y Aldao built in 1919 and the famous Los Alamos Estancia built in 1830. Using the micro-vinificacion process we made three 225-liter French oak barrels of Malbec, one of Cabernet Sauvignon and one of Syrah. To learn more aout the micro-vinificacion process contact me at tomphelany@yahoo.com 

                                                                                                                       

Winemaker Mauro (l), Yvonne Phelan, and Camilo Aldao (r) Owner of Bodega Bombal y Aldao built in 1919 taste wine directly from the barrel. The wine ages in French Oak Barrels from 12 - 24 months before bottling. Mauro was the first Argentine Winemaker to receive a 100 point rating for an Argentine wine.
