Instead of a bottle of wine, why not an entire barrel?


Owning One's Very Own Wine Label is Literally a Click Away at  

New York - January 6, 2009: Whether it's Valentine's Day, a wedding, anniversary, company gift or simply because, the gift of one's very own barrel of wine is hard to beat.  And now it is much simpler than one might think.

Algodon Wine Estates, an Argentinean wine and golf estate in San Rafael, Mendoza, has created a unique wine barrel program where, via its website, customers can craft their very own wine brand.  The customer gets to choose the type of barrel (French or American oak), has complete creative control of the design and name of the label -- perhaps one's own name or a company name? -- and, once bottled and labeled, the wine is shipped to the customer's preferred location.  Each barrel provides approximately 300 bottles of wine and can be filled up to three times, and the program also includes a two-night stay at the lodge located on the estates.  
Grape varieties include Argentinean classics such as Bonarda - known throughout Argentina for its full body - and Malbec, as well as Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay. 

About Algodon Wine Estates:
Located in San Rafael, Mendoza, a region often referred to as the "Napa Valley" of Argentina, Algodon Wine Estates offers luxury accommodations for travelers, as well as the opportunity to actually own a piece of the estate's vineyard and a custom wine label.  The future home of Argentina's tennis elite, Algodon Wine Estates' 2,050-acre grounds already boast two guest lodges and an 18-hole golf course. Additionally, there are plans to open a high-end hotel, more than 300 private home sites, a polo field, an equestrian center and a luxury spa & fitness center by the end of 2009.
