Algodon Wine Estates: create your own wine

For those that dream of spending their days on their own vineyard somewhere, Algodon Wine Estates helps to make that fantasy real – sort of. Set in Argentina’s wine producing region of Mendoza, where the snow-capped Andes irrigate the vineyards, Algodon Wine Estates offers vintner wannabes a chance to create, tend to, visit, taste, brand, and then take home, their own barrel of Argentinean wine.

Here’s how it works: first, choose your preferred flavor oak barrel (doesn’t everyone have one?) and then select the grape varieties you fancy, from Malbec to Merlot and many in between. Wait a year before heading down to Argentina to visit the vineyard, taste your own creation, and make plans for your 290 bottles to make it home – all while staying on the estate or a nearby resort. From vine to barrel, every step is included in the price and while it’s undoubtedly cheaper than purchasing your own vineyard, at costs upwards from $5,500, it’s definitely pricier than that duty-free wine you’re used to.
