Roberto - LOL
I happen to know this is a special area of Mendoza so most likley this piece (and others like it) could be interesting.
the price translates to about 155 pesos per square meter which is roughly going price in this area dependng if in private neighborhood or not, actual cost for utilities plug-in , the stunning mountain view from all points on the lot, and distance from the main road (too close could be kinda noisy since it is key road)
Roberto, do you know if Carlos allows ya to stroll across the road with your jug and fillerup from the tank? Ah, just one of the many benefits of being a winery neighbor, true for many wineries, cheers

That was funny, haha.
I wouldn't know that but I can tell you this other story -hijacking Leandro's thread-. I actually worked at the export dpt. of Trapiche in charge of Carlos for about 3 years. The Pulenta family had many members managing different dpts. both in BA as well as Mendoza and San Juan. I rarely got to see him as he spent much of his time in Mendoza and he was also involved in a few side businesses. The export division was based in BA because logistics required it (port) and I spent countless days and nights at the port loading ships. Some of these shipments were small tankers of 3000 tons that were contracted out the west coast of Africa. Loading these carriers from tanktainers (liquid train containers coming from Mendoza and San Juan) was a large, logistic endeavour that demanded the coordination of different teams. One of these were the stevedores at the port.
So speaking of jugs and fillerups from the tank, it just happened that the stevedores were ALWAYS ready with their buckets (yes, buckets not jugs) looking for holes in the hoses filling up the manifold in the carriers. It was so funny to see them collecting the -FREE- wine that would drip out of the hoses... a big party for them. We strongly alerted them never to drink such wine as it usually contained CO2 for preservation purposes throughout the shipment... to no avail. We would later see them running to the restrooms with upset stomachs. And it happened again and again and again.
Anyway, perhaps Leandro can post some pics and additional information later. This lot seems big enough for a nice house and a backyard.
