Argentina News and Truffles

You may remember our announcement not too long ago about the possibility of Algodon Wine Estates cultivating truffles. In addition to our Argentina vineyard real estate for sale, we are investigating the possibility of planting truffles on select lots that are suitable for their cultivation.

Our luxury vineyard development and Mendoza wine hotel and resort is featured in Luxury Travel Magazine recent article on luxury hotels and truffles.  Algodon Wine Estates is the only hotel mentioned that will cultivate and harvest truffles for use on its own properties.

CNN Money has an interesting piece on a North Carolina entrepreneur who is the first person to harvest and sell French black truffles on American soil.  Click here for the article.  This can be a lucrative undertaking if done right.
