BIKING THROUGH THE VINEYARDS (WITH LUNCH)
This is an original and enjoyable way to discover the vineyards, the wineries and the amazing wine region of Luján de Cuyo. The main goal of this activity is to enjoy a tour outdoors surrounded by the unique scenery of the Andes and the vineyards. Visitors will get to know two different wineries and their vineyards. In all wineries, guided tours will be provided and also several tastings of the well-known wines they produce. At the end of the tour, in the last winery, a first class lunch with matching wines will be served.
This wine experience begins departing to Lujan de Cuyo region, 25 km away from Mendoza city, where Luigi Bosca Winery is located; with its architecture it is an icon in the region. Elegant and sober, it combines the winemaking tradition of Mendoza with the highest processing technology and state-of-the-art equipment. Its wines are the Argentine expression of this varietal. We’ll taste different wines in their place of birth, between oak barrels and with the mystique of a real cava; we’ll know their vineyards and the "Via Crucis del Vino", an artistic expression unique in the world. On the south bank of Mendoza, in Agrelo, it located Achaval-Ferrer Boutique Winery, which thanks to its winemaker has created high quality wines in limited items. We’ll visit the winery and we know its philosophy experiencing the wines tasting from the barrels. The marriage between Malbec and Argentine gastronomy becomes a reality in the Dominio del Plata winery, owned by winemaker Susana Balbo, creator of wines such as Crios, Ben Marco and Susana Balbo. In their tasting room, we’ know the aromas and flavors of their Malbec for lunch, in the exclusive restaurant we’ll taste a gourmet menu paired step by step with the wines of the winery. IMPORTANT: winery visits and lunch are subject to changes without previous notice.
The tour is a journey through the Quebrada de las Conchas, where wind and water have carved, after many centuries, curious and odd shapes. You can observe their diverse geological formation and amazing scenery. It goes by truck to La Yesera and from there downhill biking is done.
