What's there to do in Mendoza?

The Mendoza Province, an oasis of natural resources and agricultural prosperity, is witnessing a development boom tantamount to one seen in California’s wine country several decades ago. Indeed, Argentina is producing some of the world’s best wines today, and Mendoza City’s bustling vineyard community has become a magnet for wine lovers across the globe with the dream of owning their own vineyard. However, many potential buyers are also seeking quieter communities in the spacious rural countryside of outlying cities, such as San Rafael, as a preferable alternative to Mendoza City's urbanized feel and much higher population of nearly one million residents.

Nestled in the southern heart of Mendoza along the Argentine Wine Route is San Rafael, a city that arguably boasts the region's most breathtaking scenery. Often described as a place that suits all needs, it is a center of distinction offering sidewalk cafés, tree-lined boulevards, green spaces, vineyards and wineries, museums, a number of resorts and lodges, and one of Argentina's leading universities. At just over 100 years old, and with only about 200,000 residents, it is the province's second-largest city. San Rafael enjoys about 330 days of annual sunshine and clear skies. It is a safe city with little to no crime and is currently experiencing a full upswing of economic, cultural, and demographic expansion.

Algodon Wine Estates is family friendly, and its location makes for a remarkable seasonal or year-round investment property. With the Sierra Pintadas and Andes Mountains as its backdrop, the estate lies in close proximity to some of Argentina’s most exciting tourist attractions including the Rio Atuel, the Rio Diamante, Valle Grande, and one of South America's greatest ski resorts, Las Leñas. Exciting local activities include exploring Argentina’s extraordinary wine route, world-class skiing, boating, horseback riding, mountain climbing and hiking, mountain biking, whitewater rafting, four-wheeling, mineral baths, recreational fishing and a host of other adventures for thrill seekers and explorers.
