I highly recommend Mendoza Homes as I have used them in the past and found them to be very professional and knowledgeable.
MendozaHomes replied on August 19, 2015 with:
You rent in pesos argentinos, now the new Codigo Civil y Comercial said is imposible to sing contract in usd, but it isnĀ“t impossible, who write the contract know about how put in usd. Also you pay one month for deposit, not more say the new codigo civil. If you have some questions about real estate, let me know. good luck

TomP replied on August 19, 2015 with:
Argentina's requirements to obtain a permanent residency permit are long and laborious if not near impossible unless one of the spouses is Argentine. My wife and I when living in Argentina and owning vineyards held under an S.A. or Argentine corporation spent years on lost or redundant paperwork, lawyers and more. We finally gave up because it wasn't worth the effort especially considering we return to the USA several times a year and by doing so renew our 90-day Visas.

TomP posted Do you want to make Wine in Argentina? on the Argentina forum on August 18, 2015:
It's winter in Argentina and vineyards are gearing up for the 2016 harvest in April for red grapes, in particular Malbec. Our 2015 Malbec harvest was 150,000 kgs. or 330,000 pounds. Have you ever considered making wine in Argentina for your consumption only? This is not a get rich scheme where I promise your wine will sell for big bucks in Argentina or the USA. And this is not an offer to make swill wine in a bathtub. Interested, email me?

TomP initially posted:
Is anyone interested in helping me harvest my vineyards this coming March and April 2016 in San Rafael, Mendoza Province, Argentina. I cannot pay you a wage but I might help with sleeping accommodations and some sight seeing. This would be for fun and to see a little of Argentina. Contact Tom at US# (919) 321-8448 or tomphelany@yahoo.com
TomP replied most recently with:
First of all why are you taking such umbrage to my offer? If you don't like it-pass on it. Maybe revealing a little bit more about yourself will help explain your diatribe. What you say is "true" and that disregarding paying wages and that is exactly why I pay all Argentine Government mandated wages plus benefits to my Argentine vineyard workers. In fact I even have an Argentine CPA who keeps my books. So check all you want.

In 1865 President Lincoln abolish Slavery, in ths US. In Argentina, is illegal not paying salaries, to workers, regardless the smart the employer tries to be. Will like to know, and will check, with the Local Union, (sindicato unico de trabajadores contratistas de vinas y frutales de Mendoza) their opinion regarding working for free. On top, you are an american, and they will accuse the US of abusing labor rigths.

Please see our web site: www.lavidabuenavineyards.com It should provide you with our background and how we, my wife and I, two Americans, traveled to Argentina, ended up in San Rafael/Mendoza Province and purchased 108-acre of blanco (raw) land and built vineyards. To put it mildly is has been a roller coaster ride with many baldes (speed bumps in Spanish). My wife and I have no regrets and we love Argentina and its people.

Hello, I'm trying to send a person in Ensenada Berisso, Buenos Aires, Argentina whom is a fan of my band a CD and some stickers. I've been trying to converse with him on facebook but he doesn't speak english and I do not speak spanish. I've been trying to use google translate but its not exactly working well. He has been describing his address as a string of numbers, "35 entre 168 y 169". Is this a valid address to mail to? I've never mailed anything to south america before. Any help anyone could give would be much appreciated. Thanks
aaronbennis replied most recently with:
There are many locals in BA who speak excellent English. Unless your fan is the neighborhood guy everybody avoids, he should not have a problem finding someone tp assist him in communicating with you.
decay603 replied most recently with:
Thanks for your reply! His response was 35 was the street and he gave the city "number" which I'm guessing is the zip. he said his house does not have a number, that it is between number 168 and 169. Is it possible in this region to perhaps send it to the local postal office addressed to him and have him collect it if he does not have a deliverable address? Thanks again.
