Galileo Private Vineyard Estates
Galileo Private Vineyard Estates, a boutique 10 acre vineyard that produces premium and barrel fermented super premium wines is putting itself on the market.
Vines of Mendoza
Galileo is one of the older private vineyard estates inside the Vines of Mendoza cooperative of private vineyard estates www.vinesofmendoza.com; Since the owner of Galileo is motivated to sell, he is offering Galileo at a significant discount to what Vines of Mendoza is selling new private vineyard estates for.
It is very important to note that the new private vineyard estates being offered to the market have not all been planted and Galileo has been producing high quality premium and super premium grapes for 7 years.
Why pay full price for a vineyard and have to wait 3 years until your grapes are mature enough to make wine when you can acquire 10 acres of high quality vineyards that have been producing premium and super premium grapes for several years.
This 10 acre property is 50% planted with Malbec, the signature grape of Argentina which finds its best expression in Mendoza, 20% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. All of these grapes are farmed as low yield, premium and super premium quality grapes. The owner wishes to retire from this investment and is willing to provide financing to qualified buyers.The property is located in Valle de Uco, Mendoza, Argentina, home to several of South America’s award winning wines.
For makers of boutique and super premium wines as well as passionate wine hobbyists this is a tremendous opportunity to take control of an ultra-premium terroir to farm grapes to make wines based on your personal preferences. As this Private Vineyard Estate is within a cooperative and has an existing Vineyard Consulting and Services Agreement with the Vines of Argentina Vineyard Services, all farming, maintenance and wine production is outsourced to the Vines of Argentina. At a small cost and investment you can produce your own wines with the support of the Vines or work with other service providers.
Galileo produces Nanour, a premium Malbec as well as Nicomedes, a super-premium, barrel fermented Malbec. For just a fraction of the cost of what it would cost you to invest in a comparable quality California vineyard you can acquire prime property in one of Argentina’s most celebrated wine producing regions.
The Uco Valley
The Uco Valley is a key wine-growing region of Mendoza, Argentina.
Located in a valley an hour’s drive south from the city of Mendoza, the region is home to the production of some of Mendoza’s most famous wines.
Argentina’s icon grape variety of Malbec finds one of its best expressions in the Uco Valley, producing terroir-driven red wines with a distinctive floral aroma.
The region is home to several of Argentina’s top producers. Attracted by the excellent climate and soil quality, newcomers with historic Bordeaux-based names such as Lurton, Dassault, Rothschild and Rolland have given Uco Valley a firm place on the international wine map.
The vineyards of Vista Flores have produced some particularly successful wines. Among Uco’s specific merits is its higher-altitude location at the foot of the Andes mountains; the valley’s La Consulta and Tunuyan sub-regions sit at altitudes of 2800 ft (850m) and 3600 ft (1100m) respectively, slightly higher than Maipu and Lujan de Cuyo in the north. Located at a latitude of 33°S, the area’s elevated vineyard sites benefit from high daytime temperatures which drop to cool at night. This allows the grapes to produce balanced sugars and acidity while achieving phenolic ripeness. Some of Mendoza’s finest white wines made from Chardonnay and Torrontes come from Uco Valley vineyards, as the relatively cool climate allows the requisite slower ripening period.
