With vines dating back to 1946, when it served as a private vineyard estate, this remarkable property was redeveloped in 2002 by the grandson of golf legend José Jurado; "The father of Argentine Professional Golf". Jurado established “Viñas del Golf”; a boutique family winery, golf course, and petite hotel lodge situated in a fully-restored 1921 farmhouse.

In 2007, the 718 acre property was purchased and renamed by the U.S. based development firm, Gaucho Group Holdings, Inc, who eventually expanded the size of the estate by nearly six times its acreage to over 4,138 acres. After a number of additional strategic enhancements to the vineyards, winery, golf course and other resort amenities, today Algodon Wine Estates in San Rafael, Mendoza is considered the premiere wine resort, golf resort and recreational club in all of Argentina, with an international reputation for truly outstanding wines.
