Algodon Wines & Luxury Development Group: A Decade-Long Investment Thesis Finally Playing Out…
Algodon Wines & Luxury Development Group, referred to as VINO going forward, is one way to play the unlevered assets and the credit expansion of Argentina, and it took some digging to find this name. VINO, while having been put together over the last decade, is newly public - the timing of the go-public transaction no doubt much more than purely coincidental (with the political regime change, Argentinian structural reform, etc.). VINO, while being valued at ~$125 million in market cap, also trades "by appointment" at this point so it's public (again, at this point) only in name and in reporting. This is important to take into consideration when prospecting an investment. An investment in VINO should be thought of as an investment into a private enterprise; something which I find attractive when investing (thus why I'm covering this name).

Stay: Algodon Mansion
Honeymoon worthy and full of Argentine charm, this Recoleta hideaway has only ten rooms, so you're likely to have the rooftop jacuzzi and plunge pool to yourself. Every room is massive and comes with butler service, while bathrooms have steam showers and soaking tubs built for two. Seriously, this is baby-making territory. Tip: Algodon’s sister property in Mendoza creates incredible wines, all available at the hotel. Sign up for a tasting with the in-house sommelier then ship home a couple cases to relive your weekend en casa.
