About the Property
Newly Completed Villa Offers Great Valle De Uco Location And Ultimate Comfort
Situated on the site of a former apple orchard now known as Finca Ogawa, the finca property itself offers three acres of Malbec vineyards, two acres of other varietals, a vegetable garden, ten acres of walnuts, several acres combining apple, peach, and apricot trees, a huge raspberry patch, many rose bushes and two beautiful old fig trees.
Casa Clara Lorena is the ideal rental property for a larger or multi-generational group, or for three couples, who can enjoy the private bedroom suites. At over 3100 square feet (288 m2), Casa Clara Lorena is referred to as the “castle of Finca Ogawa” since it is the largest of the villas and the only one with a second story.
Clara Lorena offers three one-bedroom suites, a separate dining room, and a kitchen “nook” where guests can comfortably relax. Bedrooms on the ground floor also have their own private enclosed garden patios.
The second-floor terrace, with its own fireplace, boasts a 360-degree view of the finca, the Andes, and the surrounding Valle de Uco.
Clara Lorena has a large living-room fireplace, its own private swimming pool, a big-screen HD television with a DirectTV premium package, and central air-conditioning/heat, as well as laundry facilities.
There is also a modern, well-equipped kitchen with two separate sinks and a large granite-topped island for food preparation, serving and socializing.
Expert guidance regarding local attractions and activities, and other sightseeing assistance, are among the available services. We are happy to provide guests with winery and restaurant recommendations and can set up tours and tastings at the best local places.
We also can assist you in enjoying other local adventures such as river-rafting, cycling, hiking, and horseback-riding. We'll tell you about a beautiful, outdoor thermal spa tucked into the nearby mountainside or, in winter, about a world-class ski resort that is only a short two-hour drive away.
Or simply relax around the finca, enjoying Casa Clara Lorena's private swimming pool, wrap-around patios, and the view of the Andes from the terrace or through the floor-to-ceiling living room windows. Sip a glass of Malbec or Torrontes while the sun sets behind the nearby Andean peaks -- and savor the fabulous Argentine meat from our favorite local butcher as it cooks on the outdoor parrilla or in the horno.
A pulperia (general store) on the finca property offers fine wines, jams, farm-fresh eggs, and other local delicacies, as well as a place to gather with other guests and feel the pace of life on the farm. Children and young adults will love picking raspberries, visiting with the resident horses, chickens, ducks and geese, and having large outdoor areas to explore.

Valle de Uco is located squarely in the middle of one of the eight great wine-growing regions of the world. Hence, there are nearly 1000 wineries and bodegas to enjoy within a 50-mile radius of the property. The 27-acre finca (or ranch) upon which Casa Clara Lorena is located, called Finca Ogawa, is both a working farm and a producer of fine boutique wines, a rural oasis ideally situated nearby numerous attractions and sites of interest.
Year Purchased: 2013
About: We are two (more or less) retired attorneys who reside most of the year in Northern California (when not at our home in Argentina). We own the 1-1/2 acre parcel on which Casa Clara Lorena is located, but the property is managed by the owners of Finca Ogawa, John Ecklund and Martha Mafferra, and reservations are handled by Florencia Mafferra.
Why Mendoza Province, Argentina:
What brought us to build this home, and what makes it such an attractive location in which to spend time, is its proximity to world-class wineries and restaurants, the incredible Andean scenery, the warmth and vitality of the locals and of the Mendocino culture, and its relaxing rural, country setting.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Enjoy deluxe Valle de Uco living at prices far below those charged by nearby exclusive resorts, luxuriating in the privacy of your own wine-country villa. This is a unique opportunity to experience life in a tranquil farm setting while enjoying incomparable wine, food and scenery, amid comfortable, inviting and well-appointed accommodations.
