Antigua Bodega Giol, Maipu

4.3
#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.

    Impresindible, is make a visit to this iconic Winery. Here you can visit the huge barrels that were formerly used in the manufacture of wine, which frightened by its size. Highly recommended for lovers of history

    A place historical, not to be missed. See the old Winery and the award-winning cask is incredible. Very friendly staff that makes the guided tour and the price is very affordable. I recommend it

    The Winery is imperative in its immensity. Guided tour was not as explanatory of the process of the wine but rather the history of the winery. Very interesting

    Unfortunately, it has become a lifeless place.

    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
