Experience a wine tasting tour for the bicycling enthusiast. This trip offers you an opportunity to experience world-renowned wines first hand and to immerse yourself in the unique culture and majestic landscape where these wines are produced. Quintessential Mendoza includes visits to the wineries and vineyards of Valle de Uco, Maipua nd Lujan de Cuvo, where the wines are so unique in their aroma, appearance, and sensation that they have their own appellation. To better understand the importance of terroir (the land), you ride into the desert that surrounds Mendoza and learn why the irrigation system is so critical to the local agriculture.   You tour the Uco valley, which lies in the shadow of the Volcano Tupungato, and pedal up to the base of the Cordon del Plata mountain range. Enjoy learning about varieties of olive oil and drinking the best Malbec in the world! Visit seven very different wineries ranging from modern, innovative constructions to classical bodegas with strong ties to Argentinean winemaking traditions. East meals paired with complimentary varietals. Ride a total of 200km to gain an intimate connection with the surroundings. Conclude each action-packed day at luxurious wine lodge. Attend a real Argentine asado!
