US Summer = Argentinean Winter = Relief From the Heat!

New York - July 20, 2010: For those who can't bear the heat this summer, a trip south of the Equator, where the seasons are reversed, offers the ideal escape to cool down. This August 1st through September 11th, travelers can enjoy a four-night Summer Ski & Wine Getaway package at Algodon Wine Estates (AWE), an internationally award-winning Argentinean wine and golf estate in San Rafael, Mendoza, and the nearby Virgo Hotel & Spa, one of South America's leading ski resorts.

Guests will spend Thursday and Friday night at Algodon Wine Estates; the stay will include a full day of tennis and golf, breakfast each morning, a winery tour and a complimentary bottle of Algodon wine, as well as access to a golf cart during the entire stay to explore the estate's 2,050-acre scenic grounds.

On Saturday, guests will be transported to Virgo Hotel & Spa, located in the valley of Las Lenas and only 22 yards from the area's renowned ski lifts. The two-night stay will include breakfast each morning, one dinner and unlimited access to Virgo's ski lifts, health club and spa, gym, heated pool, kids and teen club and cinema.

The package, based on double occupancy, is priced at US$2,840.
