Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in a luxury vineyard community surrounded by acre upon acre of antique olive groves, fruit orchards, and breathtaking mountain views?
We have embarked on a journey to make Algodon Wine Estates one of the finest wine, wellness, culinary, and sport destinations in South America. Argentina is a country known for great wines, leather goods, and tourism and we believe Algodon Wine Estates is a complete destination in itself. It’s no wonder then that our lot owners originate from all over the world, including from several states throughout the USA, the United Kingdom, Dubai, Netherlands, Switzerland, Scotland, and France.
Our region’s sunny climate is ideal for producing our signature bonarda and malbec wines, as well as playing through the vineyards on our nine-hole golf course (slated to be expanded to 18-holes in the near future). If you are a wine loving golfer who enjoys chipping and sipping, then we invite you to enjoy a truly unique wine and golf experience at Algodon Wine Estates in the heart of Argentina wine country.
We could not be more proud to have recently appeared in an exciting New York Times Real Estate article featuring a selection of lifestyle-driven communities, in breathtaking settings, tailored to wine and golf lovers. Here is an excerpt:

Algodon Wine Estates in San Rafael, Mendoza, is a 4,138-acre estate planted with heritage vines, olive groves and fruit orchards at the foot of the Sierra Pintada mountains.
The region’s sunny climate is ideal for producing the estate’s signature bonarda and malbec wines, as well as playing its nine-hole golf course designed by Ricardo Jurado Jr., the grandson of the Argentine golf legend José Jurado.
More than 100 vineyard lots, some showcasing Spanish Revival homes, overlook the golf course. (Another nine holes with adjacent lots are in the works.) Home sites range from 21,527 square feet ($105,000) to almost seven acres ($785,000), with construction costs around $80 per square foot. Homeowners’ association fees run about $350 per month.
“I quickly realized I could get much more for my money in Mendoza compared to Napa, Tuscany or Provence,” said John Raffaeli, a homeowner and wine entrepreneur.
At the on-site winery, homeowners can create their own private-label in collaboration with the winemaker Mauro Nosenzo. Rates start at $2,900 and include the cost of labor, a new French-oak barrel and about 290 bottles of wine.
Algodon Wine Estates is in a region of Argentina with a sunny climate that is ideal for producing the estate’s signature bonarda and malbec wines.
Is it any wonder that San Rafael was named one of world's "best places to retire" by CNN Money? Great for retirement, a second home, or vacation, Algodon Wine Estates represents one of the most dynamic real estate markets in the world today.
If your idea of a dream home includes a combination of golf, nature, quality architecture and fine wine, Algodon Wine Estates can check those all off your list.
