By bike knowing the wineries

A poster between wineries synthesizes with three words, “Bikes and wines”. A phenomenon that adapts to all the tourist attractions that Mendoza has.


As we started to tour the  former Giol winery , one of the classics that Maipú has, we observed that a group of tourists took a guided tour aboard  several mountain bikes and with a guide  who, also by bike, led the group. Seeing this, we immediately understood why on various roads and routes in Maipú it is common to  see groups of cyclists : these are tourists who are meeting and wandering around wineries, olive groves and how much tourist provider has something to show.

Our friend Edgardo was a high mountain guide and has been, for years, one of the local entrepreneurs who throughout the year guides tourist groups from around the world ( whatever language the  group speaks) to carry out the different tours of wine and olive trees, always by bicycle.

Its micro-enterprise, called Maipú Aventuras, provides the opportunity to ride through the most representative wineries in Maipú to learn about the history of wine in  Argentina , without leaving on the side small family ventures of wine and vine that open their doors to this new way of sightseeing.

After hearing the proposal that Edgardo had prepared for us, we were to meet first thing the next day to share with a  group of tourists  this unique adventure.

The tour

On time, we expected in Ozamis street 1000 that visitors would begin to reach the starting point, in this case the former Giol winery. In addition to being the first  winery  to visit, it has a history rich in anecdotes and glories that deserve to be known.

From there, crossing the street nomás, we enter pedaling to the Wine and Harvest Museum of the city of Maipú, another landmark of this city to visit to understand why wine is so important in this country.iacute; s.
