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.

  • 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.

  • Want to know the history of the equipment used in the production of wine? This tour is a must! The place to visit very interesting and comprehensive. Wherever you look there is a piece of history. When we went, there was a very large group conducting the visit. This scattered the visitors and made it difficult to hear the guided tour.

  • With very good attention we discover how evolved the viniculture in Mendoza in the social economic historical period from 1890 onwards. Makes us rating that roots have had. The visit is essential to understand the relevance of the hard work of many to continue working on generating the best wines. The supplementary information of the two founding families in Italy, where he continued working in new wineries. The site deserves to continue as a museum or need further assessment of other wineries to become a place of Exchange.
