Antigua Bodega Giol, Maipu

(120+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site
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. For Antigua Bodega Giol and beyond, use our Maipu family vacation planner to get the most from your Maipu vacation.

  • The only Winery open was Saturday afternoon. Toured the winery, where the barrels of oak already are parched by the lack of use. Includes wine tasting at the end
