Antigua Bodega Giol, Maipu

4.2
#4 of 16 in Historic Sites in Province of Mendoza
Discover the production processes and sample the wares at Antigua Bodega Giol, once recognized as the world’s largest winery. The intriguing bodega has a rich history, with founders Juan Giol and Bautista Gargantini partnering up in 1887 to open the winery’s doors officially in 1898, more than 10 years later. Take a tour to understand the history of the vineyard and hear some interesting tales, such why the logo emblazoned on all wines and all over the factory is that of a bull. Tours culminate, of course, in the customary tasting sessions that experienced wine tourists will be more than familiar with. A visit to Antigua Bodega Giol represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Maipu road trip site to plot your vacation.

  • First of all, is no longer a vineyard. It is a winery type Museum which explains an important part of the history of Mendoza. It's beautiful and charming Guide. Tour is economic and allows tasting and sales room of wines and chocolates among other craft things. There are how to get there by public transport, so it is not necessary to go on tour, beautiful!
