By bicycle through the wineries of Mendoza, Argentina

The province of Mendoza in Argentina is famous for the wine. Mendoza wine can compete with the well known wineries of Napa and Sonoma in California or Bordeaux in France. The main varietal is malbec. In the shade of the Aconcagua, South America's highest mountain, Mendoza offers some dramatic views, pictures and tastes. Mendocinos are also a little different in attitude from the rest of the country. In a pleasant way.

On our recent visit, we stopped by the winery of Di Tommaso. It is the oldest winery open to tourists. It is also where I learned about the wine bicycle tours. Google a bit and you'll find various companies offering a bicycle tour.
