We are pleased to announce the opening of Algodon Club & Wine Bar, located on the ground floor of Algodon Mansion.  Algodon Club & Wine Bar will prominently feature the award-winning wines and fresh farm products from Algodon Mansion’s sister property in San Rafael, Mendoza, Algodon Wine Estates.  The kitchen will emphasize select menu options inspired by the Mendocinean-style cuisine of Algodon Wine Estates, which has been celebrated for distinctively complementing the wines and local products of Argentina’s wine region.

“We are very excited about this important step forward for Algodon’s unique identity and brand,” says Scott Mathis, Founder of Algodon Properties.  “The opening of Algodon Club & Wine Bar is a strategic move that will allow us to focus more on our award-winning, handcrafted wines, which are the true ambassadors of everything Algodon.  Algodon Club & Wine Bar fittingly embraces our exclusivity as an ultra-luxury, wine-themed hotel for which we have a built an acclaimed reputation worldwide.”

Pedro Bernacchi, COO of Algodon Argentina adds, “Algodon Club & Wine Bar at Algodon Mansion thoroughly reflects the spirit and values of Algodon’s wine-related brand and the farm-to-table products associated with our vineyard estate.  In addition to our handcrafted premium and icon wines, Algodon’s products include estate cultivated extra virgin olive oil, fresh fruits and vegetables, cheeses, cold cuts and smoked meats, and homemade bread, among many other simple essentials that will now enjoy a much stronger presence at Algodon Mansion.”

Members of Algodon’s private social club, the Algodon Club, which will launch later this year, will receive special Algodon Club & Wine Bar VIP treatment.  Benefits include invitations to intimate wine tastings, dinners and other wine-themed events and private parties, as well as the opportunity to reserve the mansion’s dining rooms and lounges for private social or corporate events, receiving top priority, preferred booking, and tailor made budgets.  In addition to receiving complimentary access to Algodon Mansion’s exclusive cigar club, the Davidoff Lounge, located at the mansion’s open air rooftop, Algodon Club members will also enjoy the exclusive benefits of Algodon’s preferred wine club, where they’ll receive complimentary bottles of the winery’s very best vintages throughout the year, as well as hotel discounts and automatic suite upgrades, and preferred pricing and discounts on Algodon fine wines and the winery’s exclusive barrel program.
