After half an hour ride, we get to one of Argentina´s largest sparkling wine producer.
On our way to the following estate, we´ll stop for some more scenic views of spectacular vineyards and fruit orchards of the beautiful district of Agrelo. As it´s our belief that a great bike tour deserves great food, we´ll enjoy a three-course gourmet endeavor at Bodega Dominio del Plata. Even though the winery's style reflects the past, the winemaking process is quite modern. The combination of traditional methods and state-of-the-art technology aims at making high quality wines.
Recharge your energy and renew your sense of adventure. The scenic places are perhaps Mendoza´s greatest treasures.
Return to Mendoza by 6pm.
→ Option 3- MODERATE - Biking in the Uco Valley
Traveling south from Mendoza city, we journey into the countryside covered in patchwork fields, swaying Alamos, and the jagged peaks of the Andes Mountains. The destination is the Uco Valley. Well inside the first mountainsides of the Andes´ foothills, this valley presents the highest altitudes at which wines are produced in Mendoza.
Our first ride will be to Bodega Salentein. Respectful of the land´s vibrantly textured past, Salentein is equally inspired by the land´s remarkably promising future. It is this delicate balance of old and new- of blending the tradition of long-celebrated European winemaking methods with the bold ingenuity of the New World- that defines the Salentein style.
We continue south along the rolling countryside to get to Bodega Andeluna. Andeluna would look quite at home in a remote part of Texas as a hunting lodge. This is not accidental, Andeluna has deep roots in Texas. The winery was founded in 2003 by Ward Lay (son of the founder of Frito Lays - the parent of Walker crisps). Situated at the foot of the Andes just outside of the town of Tupungato in the Uco Valley, Andeluna has magnificent views of the mountains. The huge windows of the dining room are designed to take advantage of the effect, allowing us to enjoy the view as much as the food. All recipes are fully made of natural products, which are grown in this exceptional place.
On a clear day you really can see forever. The view is clear along mountains. Expansive only begins to describe each view wich is surpassed only by the next mountain country vista !
Return to Mendoza by 6.30pm.

Getting to Mendoza:
Mendoza Airport is one of major international airports in Argentina. Flights to Mendoza include a number of domestic airlines as well as international flights. Aerolineas Argentinas and Latam connects Mendoza to Buenos Aires, Córdoba, Salta and Bariloche.
The airport is also well connected with most cities in South America. Sky Airlines, GOL and Latam connect Mendoza with Santiago de Chile (4 daily flights), Sao Paulo (2 flights a week ), Lima (4 flights a week) and Rio de Janeiro (once a week).
- Mendoza by Bus
Travel by bus is very comfortable in Argentina and Chile. There are sleeper buses with seats that recline 180 degrees with on-board dinner (drinks included). As an excellent alternative means of getting our province, we recommend the luxury buses that travel from Chile or Buenos Aires to Mendoza.
Santiago de Chile (SCL) is a very convenient airport for flying into South America. There are several bus companies which run the route Santiago to Mendoza. It is one of the most popular bus connections and you will not have any problems to get a bus ticket on spot. After doing this journey you will not need to take the famous ¨High Mountain Tour¨ from Mendoza, which drives exactly the same road. We recommend CATA and Andesmar which also book seats online at: www.catainternacional.com & www.andesmar.com
