Going Global Your Own (Hassle-Free) Argentinian Vineyard
Casa de Uco Vineyards and Wine Resort, a family-owned vineyard and boutique resort spanning 800 acres in the foothills of the Andes in Argentina’s Uco Valley, recently launched sales of its fully managed vineyard parcels, where owners can participate in farming the land and winemaking at any and/or every stage of the process.
For owner/founder Juan Tonconogy and his father, this is a dream realized: “Winemaking is a passion for many, so we created a plan where we could share the winemaking passion with wine lovers without the hassles that managing a vineyard entails.”
The resort also offers an array of activities, including parcel wine pairing tastings, bike and horseback rides, vinotherapy spa treatments, paragliding, water rafting and vineyard and/or mountainside asados (Argentine barbecue) with locally sourced ingredients.
Casa de Uco’s 80 plots of land, sized at a half acre and up, start at $60,000 per acre. Plans eventually call for secluded, self-sustained villa residences as well.
Fabulous Finds New Luxury Community for Private Pilots & Equestrian Enthusiasts Unveiled
Owners of the 27,000-acre Red Reflet Ranch in Ten Sleep, Wyoming, are excited to unveil the Homesteads at Red Reflet Ranch, 12 private parcels offering the same high-end service and recreational activities as the famed guest ranch and luxury resort.
Ranging from 40 to 160 acres, the homesteads are now available for $435,000 to $1.225 million. Each homestead may contain one home, a guesthouse, barn and hangar pad, adjacent to the private airport, with a 5,000-foot runway. Owners will enjoy exclusive ranch club privileges and have access to all facilities and family-friendly activities, including equestrian programs, a zip line course, shooting range, natural water park, ATVs and more.
Year round, guests can wake up in well-appointed luxury cabins surrounded by million-dollar views of the Chugwater formation sandstone cliffs and the snow-capped peaks of the Bighorn National Forest.
“Red Reflet Ranch offers the best features of a real Wyoming working ranch, coupled with contemporary 5-star amenities. It’s not like any other luxury retreat or Western-style resort — it’s a destination and a way of life,” said Bob Kaplan, on-site owner of Red Reflet Ranch.
