Antigua Bodega Giol, Maipu

4.2
#3 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.

  • They have the best way to scare away tourists. The restaurant at 12 was still closed and no one could display the menu. All they asked for is selling us the eentradas

  • I went with my mom. We first toured giol House with a guide for $15. Very well explained what is historic. Then for $100 we went to visit the winery and then made tasting. The boys, both of which then sold wines guide was excellent. Very friendly and attentive. So is highly recommended for less money, you will get a great experience.

  • Unfortunately, it has become a lifeless place.
  • Good selection of wines on tasting and good service.
  • It is a pity that the Museum does not have as many resources to keep, it is a great cultural and historical heritage, I hope that this will change soon. The guide is very friendly and travel, while short, is very educational. Bodegas Giol was the original producer of the famous Bull and bull old table wine
