Each year for the last five years Mumms has purchased our La Vida Buena Chardonnay grapes from this 100% Turnkey Vineyard - Positive Cash Flow (pictured below and right margin)

This lovely 4.25-acre (1.72-hectare) seven-year-old Chardonnay vineyard is located on our 108-acre Vineyard development in San Rafael, Mendoza Province, Argentina. The vineyard is 100% Turnkey, everything is handled for you. Located directly across from this vineyard is a worker’s house, 24/7 on-site Vineyard Manager, vineyard workers, tractor with implements and water well. We use an Agronomist, Enologist and Argentine CPA who maintain the books according to Argentine standards.

Established winemaking relationships (see left margin and below) and grape sales to local award winning Bodegas and Wineries are in place and available to you. 

For the 2015 March harvest this vineyard produced 25,000 kgs. of Chardonnay grapes (55,000 pounds) and for the fifth straight year the grapes were sold to Bodega Mumms located in San Rafael to make Champagne.     


Descended from a family of barons and knights from the 12th century. Vineyard owners since 1761, the Mumm family founded the champagne house of the same name in 1827.

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 


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.
