Maipú Wine Tour

To the east of the city, Maipú transports us to the past, in order to experience the origin of wine in Argentina. We will visit three wineries that opened the path of viticulture here in Argentina and have conserved their family traditions to this day, forming an important part of the production of wines in Mendoza.

 

This tour is designed to share and enjoy an excellent day of wines where we visit some of the most important and renowned wineries of this region. The first, Trapiche Winery, represents the richness of diversity. Over the course of its history, this winery has always understood the strength of viticulture in this country, specializing in obtaining the best of the terroir, creating unique wines. We continue to Bodega Sin Fin, a family owned winery by local Mendocinians - a modern proposition in a completely remodeled building from 1937.

Finally we visit Bodega Familia Zuccardi. This family company was founded in 1963 by Engineer Alberto Zuccardi. In those times, he began planting vines in Maipú (province of Mendoza), experimenting with an irrigation system of his own creation based on a method used in California. Forty five years after the starting point of this path, three generations of the family continue to be unified by a passion for wine. In September 2015, the prestigious magazine DECANTER acknowledged José Alberto and Sebastián Zuccardi as being among the five most influential personalities of Argentine wine. We continue for lunch at Pan y Oliva, one of two restaurants located at Familia Zuccardi, known for its fresh take on pastas, salads and tapas, all with the incorporation of olive oil. We’ll head out to their lovely dining room to enjoy lunch and house wines.
