Algodon Wine Estates Update: San Rafael named top place to retire!

Fortune Magazine & CNN Money just named San Rafael, Mendoza (yes, where Algodon Wine Estates is located) as one of the world's "4 Great Places to Retire"!  This is great news for all of our properties and our not-so-little town!  Click here for the full article, which actually features a photograph of Algodon Wine Estates!

The article says retirees can find dramatically lower Argentina real estate for sale in San Rafael, and an average cost of living that is significantly lower than in the U.S.:
"An hour and a half flight from Buenos Aires, San Rafael has plenty of amenities. It also has the feel of a small European town. Two major rivers flow from the Andes mountains toward the town, which means that rafting and fly-fishing destinations are a short trip away. Farms growing some of Argentina's best-known grapes surround the town and have lured expatriates, largely retirees, from the U.S., Canada, and Europe.  Enterprising oenophiles might even earn an income from a vineyard...if you're up for the adventure, the lifestyle can be ideal."

I'll see you in San Rafael!  For information on how to buy Mendoza vineyards for sale at our golf and wine resort, visit our website.
