Algodon Wines and Luxury Development Group Unveils Designer Fashion and Accessories Label: Gaucho – Buenos Aires

NEW YORK, NY—(Marketwired – April 20, 2018) – Algodon Wines & Luxury Development Group, Inc. (OTCQB: VINO), a collection of luxury assets, real estate holdings and premium wines in Argentina, today announced the unveiling of its new designer fashion and accessories label, Gaucho – Buenos Aires, to be launched on Algodon's new e–commerce platform at GauchoBuenosAires.com. Founded by entrepreneur Scott Mathis and headed up by Argentine designers Santiago Gallo and Carmen Vils, Gaucho – Buenos Aires harnesses all these characteristics. Blending the quality of a bygone era with a sophisticated, modern, global outlook, the brand's beautifully handcrafted clothing and accessories herald the birth of Argentina's finest designer label. Gaucho – Buenos Aires expects to release its initial collection in Fall/Winter 2018.

Gaucho – Buenos Aires embodies the spirit of Argentina — its grand history, its folklore and its revival as a global center of luxury. Inspired by the sophisticated elegance of the great European maisons, Gaucho – Buenos Aires is also rooted in the traditions of native, nomadic culture. With its ambitious couture, ready–to–wear and high–street fashion offering, this is the brand in which Argentine luxury finds its contemporary expression.

“Algodon Wines and Luxury Development Group is now one step closer to its objective of creating the LVMH of Latin America,” said Scott Mathis, Algodon's founder, chairman and CEO. “The decision to launch Gaucho – Buenos Aires is a natural extension of that vision. Stemming from our original mission and geographic region, Gaucho – Buenos Aires was formed to take Algodon one step closer to achieving our goal of becoming the dominant player in Latin America's luxury consumer goods and real estate offerings. Gaucho – Buenos Aires intends to operate primarily in the e–commerce space, offering proprietary upscale goods to the world, providing Algodon the opportunity to scale both its revenues and global brand reach,” concluded Mathis.

Established in Buenos Aires, the Gaucho story is one of impeccable timing. Once dubbed the Paris of South America for its exquisite Belle Epoque style, the city is thriving again and entering a new golden age. The time is ripe for Buenos Aires to align itself with Milan, New York, Paris and London as a global fashion capital, and Gaucho – Buenos Aires will be its bold ambassador.

Algodon's goal is to reintroduce the world to the grandeurs of the city's elegant past, intertwined with an altogether deeper cultural connection: the strength, honor and integrity of the Gaucho. Seen in the intricate stitching of handmade leather, or the exquisite workmanship of an embossed belt buckle, “Gaucho” style is a world–renowned symbol of Argentine craftsmanship. Blending the quality of a bygone era with a sophisticated, modern, global outlook, the brand's beautifully handcrafted clothing and accessories herald the birth of Argentina's finest designer label.

“Through beautifully handcrafted clothing and accessories, Gaucho – Buenos Aires will be a brand consumers can trust due to its high quality,” said Santiago Gallo, Lead Designer at Gaucho – Buenos Aires. “With our team's obsessive attention to detail, we are excited to make that happen. I look forward to working with both Scott Mathis and Carmen Vils to bring the vision behind Gaucho – Buenos Aires to life.”

Algodon Wines & Luxury Development Group Receives Deed Approvals for Algodon Wine Estates Lots

NEW YORK, NY—(Marketwired – March 27, 2018) – Algodon Wines & Luxury Development Group, Inc. (OTCQB: VINO), a real estate development brand with luxury lifestyle assets and premium wines in Argentina, today announced that it has received deed approval from the Cadastral Agency of Mendoza for certain Phase 1 lots on the Algodon Wine Estates property. All figures below are estimated in U.S. dollars, which are subject to currency fluctuations.

Algodon Wine Estates, spanning four phases of development, includes approximately 350 planned lots ranging from .5 to 7 acres, with 97 lots from Phase 1 of the master plan currently available for private sale and development. Revenues for each lot sale can only be recognized once the lots are deedable and final deeds are delivered to the buyers. Certain of the Phase 1 lots on Algodon Wine Estates' property were deeded and sold to buyers, representing $870,000 in recognizable revenues in Q1 2018. As part of these deed approvals, Algodon successfully delivered on all infrastructure requirements for the property as specified by the Cadastral Agency of Mendoza.

In Q2 2018, Algodon expects to be approved for deeding another 19 Phase 1 lots, and in the next 12 months, expects to deed the remainder of the 97 Phase 1 lots.

Future expansion opportunities outside of the approximately 350 planned lots include the conversion of Algodon's additional and recently purchased 2,088–acre parcel, which doubled the size of Algodon's presence in Mendoza to well over 4,000 acres. This additional land can be further developed into Private Estancias and Vineyard Villas, or may be utilized to expand the existing vineyard or other agricultural operations, or the hospitality sectors of the business for the possibility of supplementary income streams. At current pricing the total value of land available for sale in the future exceeds $80 million.

“We are pleased to have received deed approval from the Cadastral Agency of Mendoza for the initial lots on our vineyard estate,” said Scott Mathis, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Algodon Wines & Luxury Development Group. “These initial lot sales are a strong testament to the world class destination we have built in San Rafael, Mendoza as well as the friendly business environment that is developing in the rapidly growing Argentine real estate market. Our early strategic investments in Argentine real estate are beginning to show strong returns on our initial investments, which we expect to continue as we begin a new marketing campaign to increase awareness of our property's vineyard lots for sale,” continued Mathis.

“During Argentina's difficult economic times over the last decade we accumulated, piece–by–piece, a massive estate now totalling more than 4,000 acres. Argentina is entering a new era of growth and we are excited that we can now deliver on the deeds, report revenue, and introduce our magnificent vineyard lots to the wine lovers of the world. We look forward to providing further updates to our stockholders as we continue to create value through the monetization of select real estate holdings,” concluded Mathis.

The Argentine real estate market is traditionally known for its all cash transactions and low use of leverage. Algodon Wine Estates is one of the few real estate developments in the country that has historically offered financing. As the mortgage market is gradually reintroduced to the country, the number of real estate transactions, as well as property values, have grown significantly. Additionally, as President Mauricio Macri's economic reforms begin to take hold, it is expected that international firms will increasingly make foreign direct investments into local infrastructure projects, fundamentally supporting economic growth.

Algodon Wine Estates is a 4,138 acre (1675 ha) world–class wine, wellness, culinary and sport resort, and luxury real estate development, located in the rolling hills of the Sierra Pintada Mountains in San Rafael, Mendoza, Argentina. This wine and golf community is a global destination, surrounded by the natural beauty of vineyards, fruit orchards and olive groves. Many Phase 1 lots have pre–existing vines and groves, many situated directly on the estate's 18–hole golf course, offering golf, vineyard and mountain views. The luxury destination is truly unique in the world, where residents can step right outside their front door onto the golf course and find themselves among meticulously manicured vines planted in the 1940s.

Viveve Announces FDA Approval of IDE to Conduct VIVEVE II Clinical Study

ENGLEWOOD, CO—(Marketwired – March 19, 2018) – Viveve Medical, Inc. (NASDAQ: VIVE), a medical technology company focused on women's intimate health, today announced it received approval of its Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) application from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The approval allows the company to conduct the VIveve Treatment of the Vaginal Introitus to EValuate Safety and Efficacy (VIVEVE II) clinical trial to assess the safety and effectiveness of the Viveve® System for the improvement of sexual function in women following vaginal childbirth.

“The approval of our IDE enabling Viveve to proceed with the VIVEVE II clinical study is a major advancement in our global commercialization strategy and positions our CMRF (cryogen–cooled, monopolar radiofrequency) technology for a broader range of applications in women's intimate health. The initiation of this study, which is expected to occur in the second quarter of 2018, underscores our continued commitment to conducting high–quality, scientific and clinical research, as demonstrated by our previous randomized, blinded and sham–controlled VIVEVE I clinical study, and by our planned randomized, blinded and sham–controlled LIBERATE studies in the U.S. and Canada for the treatment of stress urinary incontinence,” said Patricia Scheller, chief executive officer and director of Viveve. “We believe that VIVEVE II, if successful, will clinically demonstrate that a single treatment with the Viveve® System provides significant benefits to women suffering from diminished sexual function following vaginal childbirth and may support a marketing application for an expanded U.S. indication for the improvement of sexual function.”

VIVEVE II – VIveve Treatment of the Vaginal Introitus to EValuate Safety and Efficacy

The VIVEVE II clinical study is a randomized, double–blinded, and sham–controlled trial with a planned enrollment of approximately 250 patients at up to 25 study sites in the United States and Canada. Subjects will be randomized in a 1:1 ratio for active and sham treatments.

A staged approach, or roll–in, for clinical enrollment has been required by the FDA in its IDE approval letter to the company. In the first stage, enrollment is limited to 50 subjects. The roll–in will require safety review by the FDA of a minimum of 25 subjects, one–month post–treatment. Following the roll–in, an IDE Supplement will be submitted to the agency to expand the study up to its intended 250 patients. While the safety data from the initial 25 patients are being reviewed by the FDA, Viveve will continue to enroll up to an additional 25 patients (total of 50 patients enrolled).

The primary efficacy endpoint is intended to be the mean change from baseline in the total FSFI (Female Sexual Function Index) at 12 months, following the submission of an IDE supplement. Patients will also be assessed for safety over the 12 months. The approved protocol also includes a variety of secondary and exploratory endpoints, including various endpoints measured at 6 months post–treatment. Initiation of the VIVEVE II study is anticipated to begin in the second quarter of 2018, pending Institutional Review Board approvals at the selected clinical sites.

Additional information regarding the trial design will be available on clinicaltrials.gov.

Ms. Scheller continued, “Viveve has worked closely with the FDA in the review process and appreciates the thorough review that the Agency has conducted. If the planned VIVEVE II study is successful, we believe it will show that Viveve's CMRF technology can provide a safe and effective, single treatment option to improve sexual function after childbirth.”

Initiation of the trial is expected to begin in the second quarter of 2018 and if successful, could support a marketing application for a new US commercial indication.

Vancouver Carpet Cleaner Explains Difference between Shampooing and Steam Cleaning Rugs

VANCOUVER, BC—(Marketwired – March 16, 2018) – As a team of Vancouver carpet cleaners, the technicians at Angelo's FabriClean know that all not carpet cleaning methods are equal. In fact, when it comes to shampooing vs. stream cleaning, there are some distinct differences. And the technique that works best really depends on the condition of the carpet. For more, go to: http://www.inhomecleaning.ca/blog/Vancouver–Carpet–Cleaner–Explains–Shampooing–Vs–Steam–Cleaning

While steam cleaning is effective, gentle, and quick drying, shampooing is actually the oldest method of carpet cleaning available. And it's very effective at treating heavily soiled carpets. A good shampoo should lather well, creating a thick foam that gets down into the fibres to lift dirt away.

In fact, if a carpet is heavily soiled, shampooing will actually work better. Dirt sticks to carpet in part because of a static electric charge–like how a balloon rubbed against hair sticks to a wall. This is partly why a vacuum can't always remove deep down, ground–in dirt. Soap breaks those bonds and loosens the dirt, allowing it to be lifted away.

Of course, there are some disadvantages. Thoroughly saturating the carpet fibres means that they take longer to dry. Additionally, if any of the shampoo or water isn't removed, the carpet could potentially trap more dirt–or even risk mould growth.

For maintaining carpets, a good blast of high–powered steam is a convenient method to clean and sanitize. There's no shampoo residue and high–powered extraction equipment can effectively reach the deep down fibres where dirt and allergens settle. Better yet, carpets aren't saturated with water, so they dry faster, meaning people will regain use of their rooms more quickly.

Remember, effective carpet cleaning involves professional judgment in conjunction with the use of several different cleaning techniques. As professional steam cleaners, the technicians at Angelo's FabriClean use only the safest, most effective products and guarantee customer satisfaction.
