Museo del vino, Maipu
(4/5 based on 320+ 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.

  • The route is beautiful, super friendly guides, is impressive to see what there is in the Museum. Then the tasting and the inevitable purchase, not to lose it

  • The guides walked us to the winery and told us all the steps to purchase a wine premium.

  • Not only the winery has the possibility of knowing the current process of wine production, but it also has a wine Museum, where you can learn from the first carriages used in the first wineries like old machinery and methods of making wine. They also have a good shop to be able to acquire the products of the winery, at good prices and with any means of payment. A very recommendable walk.
