Museo del vino, Maipu

The Italian-style villa of Museo del vino welcomes all who want to understand both the ancient and the more recent history of winemaking in Maipu Valley. In 1896, a Swiss and an Italian immigrant joined forces to create one of the first wineries in Mendoza. Soon, two lavish chalets sprung up, which workers called "manor houses," along with two residential villas whose windows and balconies overlook the vast gardens near the vineyards. Outside, notice the wooden carts and wagons that carried barrels of Argentina's national beverage, while the carriages of the owners occupy an old storage room. Other ground-floor halls store the collection of ancient utensils used for distilling and processing wine, as well as the first bottles with labels.

    Really worth a visit this private Museum of the Bodega la Rural, one of the most important wineries in the country. You can visit all the historical process from the old jars of ceramics to the current stainless steel tanks.

    Here you will find lots of old equipment and the stories of the wine production in the region and the country. Opportunity to buy wine home. Can definitely be recommended especially if you rented a bike to get around among wineries and historic sites.

    Very nice to know a little of the history of the place and even many parts used in ancient times in the production of wine. The visit is fast, I was lucky to be only two (me and my husband). At the end we had the tasting of two wines of averageness by links. That's what I thought could be better. Paid 300 pesos that was reversed in the final for the purchase of wine. Very good this option that we had no other vinculas. Binds it in is a bit silly but the Museum is very interesting.
