Scheduled to open September 2013, this All Luxury resort at the foothills of the Andes has a full sustainability agenda.
Listen to what Frances Lalas has to say about guiding the resort’s grounding in sustainable development on Green Is Good Radio on SiriusXM Satellite Radio.
Pacific Northwest-born Frances Lalas is now living and working in sunny Mendoza, Argentina, at the Vines of Mendoza, overseeing the development of the newVines Resort & Spa, a five-star resort on 1,000 acres at the base of the Andes set to open at the end of 2013. She is also spearheading the company’s corporate social responsibility initiatives — an important measure for a resort that defines itself by being so close with nature. One eco-measure the soon-to-open resort has taken is the extraordinary use of locally sourced building materials
“Part of [The Vines’] vision is a commitment to the environment,” Lalas explains. “It’s really simple: We love this land, we think it’s beautiful, and we want to do what we can to take care of it.”
