There is no doubt that this is the new star tour in the region. The idea is to get on a bus and go on a neatly organized circuit to visit the best wineries in Mendoza and the closest wine route venues.
Mendoza has plenty of sunshine and wine. For six years it has had its winegrowing bus, a new contribution to the list of items the province takes pride in.
This Wine Bus offers four tours on four weekly departures to visit wineries located in the city or in the nearby towns of Luján de Cuyo, Maipú and Valle de Uco.
The idea gave life to this new transportation means that combines wine and tourism. In addition to being innovative, it operates following the Hop On & Hop Off fashion, with comfortables buses, ideal for this kind of tours and outings named: Luján Sur, El Sol, Valle de Uco & Vino and Olivos de Maipú. Visitors find it hard to choose where to stay.

Its frequency is four weekly departures (Friday to Monday). At all times, the tour, which complies with the COVID 19 protocol, is accompanied by a tour guide with extensive knowledge of the wine culture that explains what we see and provides us with information about the different wineries to know.
By Protocol COVID19 Health Security and DISPO-Preventive and Mandatory Social Distance, the bus, on each Wine Road maintains an established itinerary with fixed shifts for: Visit - Tastings or Gastronomy in the wineries.
By agreement, a guide to the winery receives passengers to make each visit and tasting. Upon entering the winery, the passenger pays an entrance fee, which includes the guided tour and the tasting of the products on display there.
During your stay in the chosen winery, you can opt for various wine tourism programs: premium wine tastings; walks through vineyards; carriage rides; harvesting and pruning programmes of vineyards; gastronomic services matched with excellent wines; and finally buying wines and sparkling wines.
