Polo Anyone?

The world of Argentine Polo appears to be alive and well, despite any global economic slowdown, according to a recent Reuters article that you can read here.  The article also touches on polo tourism and Argentina’s position as the world's top destination for polo. We anticipate that our future polo fields at Algodon Wine Estates, should be excavated and seeded this year.

This photo was taken at a recent event at our luxury Buenos Aires Hotel, Algodon Mansion (amidst the pre-opening construction).  Nacho Figueras and his wife Delfina Blaquier are pictured here with myself.   Nacho, is a world famous Argentine Polo player and may be the face that most Americans associate with Argentine Polo.  

The photo above appeared in the December 20, ’08 issue of the Argentine magazine “Noticias”.
