VALLE DE UCO!
Top Premium 113-Acre Wine Estate,
Award-Winning Wine & Export:
US$2.5 Million

Turn-Key Opportunity with Farm
Management in Place and Wine
Distribution in 11 Countries


This company is a true turn-key operation. The
company works with a talented Mendoza wine
management company to run the vineyards and
back-room operations including sales, logistics
and exports. For over a decade, the two
companies have worked together to establish a
profitable strategy to make, market, and sell
quality boutique wines made from the company
vineyards. Added to the mix, the company hired
an internationally known, Mendoza-based
winemaking couple. All together, the result is
a winning strategy.

In order to control the quality of the wine,
only grapes grown on the three vineyards are
used in making the wine. The vines range in age
from 15 to 75 years old. The combined 113 acres
of vineyard grow Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon,
Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Petit Verdot, and
Carmenere. Depending on the location, the
vineyard has a well and uses drip irrigation or
water coming from the Andes through the canal
system. The company tractors are housed in the
storage barn along with the truck and other
equipment and items used in the vineyards.

The wines offered by the company are marketed
under 2 different brands offering the marketplace
5 distinct wines. Over the years, the wines have
gathered many accolades from wine writers such
as Parker, Suckling, Tanzer, Wine Enthusiast,
Tastings, Wine Spectator, Guia Descorchados,
and many others.

In wine competitions the company wines
have performed very well. In the United States,
the wines have been highlighted at the Houston
Rodeo Wine Competition and the New Orleans
International Wines Competition, winning gold
and silver belt buckles and gold and best in
class awards respectively. Winning European
competitions find the wines receiving accolades
from Harpers Wine Stars in London, and bronze
medals in Bordeaux. In Hong Kong competitions,
the wines received silver and bronze medals.

Depending on how much or how little time an
owner wants to spend on this project, the
owner can set the pace. There are many phases
of wine making to choose from including working
with the agronomists cultivating the vines,
attending harvest festivities, collaborating with
the winemakers in choosing the wine blends,
representing the company at international wine
events such as Vinexpo and ProWein, or working
with the company distributors around the world
to introduce and sell the wine.

Harvest time! All grapes are hand-picked.

Sorting Table: Back at the winery notice
that the removal of stems and leaves are
are done by hand and not by machine. This
careful selection of which grapes go into the
wine vats ensures the sanity and quality of
the wine so the final product is exceptional.
Only premium vintners take this extra step.

International Wine & Spirits Fair, the most
important wine show in Asia.

More vineyard views:

Gorgeous Andes views and roses. The photos
show roses next to the vines. Top vineyards
will often plant roses because roses can warn
if aphids or mildew are on the way. Those pests
and diseases show up on roses first, telling the
workers they need to spray an organic-approved
pest control on the vines.

Pruning: Workers hang their jackets on the
vineyard posts during winter as they work
to prune the vines. Good pruning is an art
that must be managed by top pros or the
harvest and grape quality will suffer.
