Museo del vino, Maipu

(3.8/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • We loved the place. It is very comprehensive, thematic and modern. It explains very well the wine culture from its roots. It is a very careful, clean place with services. Super recommended before starting a tour of the wineries in the area.

  • We went with my family, they charged US $150, which we then transform into wine bottles and let us see the Museum. We tasted the Wine Museum, in white and red. Attention is classic and too halfheartedly. It's a nice walk.

  • The visit to Bodega La Rural is very instructive not only for showing how is the current production, but because they have numerous pieces that the colonists used centuries ago to make the wine. The ticket can be exchanged for a wine from the bodega. Do not forget to visit
