THE ARGENTINE VINEYARDS BUYER'S GUIDE(c)2007
This “Must Read” Tool is the smartest US$24.95 you will ever spend in researching how to wisely buy or build an Argentine Vineyard and was written by two Americans who successfully created as 108-acre vineyard development whose grapes have been purchased by some of the most notable San Rasfael Bodegas in Mendoza Province.
(click icon on book below for more information)
Tom and Yvonne gladly share their successes and mistakes in searching for and buying/building a vineyard so that you can dramatically shorten your learning curve regarding vineyard ownership allowing you to capitalize on their successes and avoid making their mistakes.
Buying an individual vineyard in Argentina, whether directly from the Owner, a Realtor or 3rd Party Representative does not automatically guarantee "transparency" in the transaction. Mendoza Province has neither the typical Realtor Multi Listing Service (MLS) nor an Argentine Department Of Real Estate that oversees all real estate transactions. You need to know what rights, including existing Government allocated water each week and future well drilling are in the Deed/Survey. You need an Agronomists Report advising as to what type of grapevines are present, how many and what varietals, their condition, how many kilos can you anticipate, and what price will each kilo bring at market at harvest time.
Not all vineyard developments are equal. For example, how can one vineyard development charge US$15,500 a year for the annual maintenance of a 5-Acre vineyard when another development only charges US$3,600 for the same 5-Acre vineyard? And how can one vineyard development charge you the vineyard owner a 10% brokering fee for buying your grapes and then demand that you pay an additional 10.5% IVA tax that is traditionally paid by the purchasing Winery?
The Argentine Vineyards Buyer’s Guide is a 137 page Guide packed with information and written by Tom and Yvonne Phelan, two Americans who have lived in Argentina and built a successful 108 acre Boutique, 100% Turnkey vineyard development that includes the construction of an Estancia in 2012/2013 where Vineyard Owners can stay free when visiting.
Their story began when Tom was a Guest Speaker at an International Living Conference in Buenos Aires in 2007. Tom and Yvonne invested three months in pursuing their dream of owning a vineyard. Once they discovered Mendoza Province and San Rafael they have been permanent residents ever since traveling between their Condo in Mendoza and their 108 acre where La Vida Buena Vineyards’ project.
