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.

  • We were allowed to visit only the museum, since we were not interested in their tour or tastings (too much wine). We found the museum to be fascinating, with lots of 19 century (and maybe even before)...  more »
  • We arrived at the Bodega and visit the Museum, the best is to purchase entry tickets and can revert into wine, costs 200, 00pesos each person. The Museum of history is wonderful, ' as was formerly wines step-by-step. I loved it and would go back!

  • The tour is limited to a little of the history of the place and the Museum, which is the most interesting. The tasting is not very informative and the wines tasted are not of the best. There are better and more complete tours in other bodegas. I arrived a little early on the scene and I could spend more time at the Museum, before the tour. The visit is made with advance booking, by email or phone, and payment is made on time (accept credit cards). But I saw some people succeed without prior reservation. Depends on the stream of people on time. Tickets purchased for the visit can be exchanged for wine sold on site, with good choices and good prices. It is easy to get to this place of conventional buses from the city of Mendoza (the trip lasts about 50 minutes) and a short walk (1 km), but because there are other wineries in the region suggest renting a car, hire a remis or some bus rides that make this script.
