Just to be completely clear, there is nothing about this place that merits the title "museum of wine". There are no artifacts, no exhibits, no information about wine, the history of wine, the production of wine, or the wines grown in Argentina. There is not so much as a grape on the premises, let alone a bottle of wine or even a single empty barrel. What there is: a couple of falling-down old mansions belonging to a family that had something to do with the wine industry about 150 years ago. They're lovely buildings. But, so call it the National Museum of Falling Down Buildings. Massive waste of time.
BTW there is also a Bodega La Rural that purports to be a Museum of Wine, which actually does have artifacts, but it's not a museum either. And in downtown Mendoza, there is a wine store that calls itself the Museum of Wine. It's just a wine store. You;re welcome.

We visited this museum, like many, while waiting for a tour at the nearby Bodega Lopez. The building (and it's sister 100 yards up the road) are architecturally magnificent, but are now quite run down.

We struggled to tell if the place was open, butnthe front door opened to our touch. There was a member of staff wandering around on a phone, but we were left entirely to our own devices to pook around the building.

There are some interesting and informative exhibits aboutbyhe history of the houses and Bodega Giol, as well as some wine-related art in the upstairs gallery. Ingeneral, however, it seemed like a waste of a fabulous building, which could benefit massively from some restoration, perhaps funded by visitors?

I understand that other visitors have had tours and even tastings here. Perhaps our timing was off, as that would have been really interesting!

This museum, along with bodega Lopez and free bike hire at the tram/train station completes a great, and economic day out. Start by enquiring about the timings for the next tour of the bodega, if like us you are hours early for the next tour in english then head over to this museum. The staff were very friendly and gave us a personal tour of the place. There is a great section on the different grape varieties and the history of tge vineyard and immigrants is very interesting.

We had an hour to wait for a Bodega tour, so pedalled to the museum (2 hour free cycle hire from midday at Estacion Gutierrez) and were very impressed with the tour and beautiful building. Liliana was a great guide - informative and patient (our Spanish is far from perfect, so we had to ask her to repeat some facts). We had our lunch in the garden before pedalling off to wine tasting. A perfect hour - just 8 pesos each!

The Argentine National Museum of Wine and Viniculture is located in the beautiful early 19th century homes of two of Argentina's most successful wine entrepreneurs - the founders of Bodegas Giol. We were given a most excellent tour of the museum and home by the resident guide for just 8 pesos each - a real bargain. The tour (in spanish) lasted about 30 minutes and covers the history of the winemakers families, the bodegas and some of the history of winemaking in Argentina.

These two houses (only one of which is open to the public) were built at the beginning of the 20th century using materials shipped from Europe. the architecture is an outstanding example of the period and some of the innovations incorporated are revolutionary for Argentina at that time. They should be an absolute national treasure but have suffered years of neglect and are in desperate need of renovation. The tale of the two winemakers is a sad one and their homes currently possess a melancholy air which adds to an air of sadness for lost former glories.

Perhaps more galling is the fact that just a few miles away, Argentina is currently experiencing a wine boom. Multi-million dollar state of the art wineries, financed by foreign investment are being built at an astonishing rate. It is clearly a boom industry and yet this museum, the guardian of its heritage is in danger of irreversible decay.

This place is definitely worth a visit to understand the beginnings of winemaking in Argentina and to feel the excitement of unlimited opportunities that the European Immigrants must have experienced in those early days.

Lets just hope that some of today's winemakers together with the local government can preserve this fascinating heritage.

Vendimia is the name for the harvest Festival Celebration that Mendoza has every year at the beginning of harvest. This is a good museum to see many of these celebrations.

This is a private museum that offers free self guided tours. 30 minutes to one hour to tour. Open 7 days. Bathroom fee. It is a previous mansion owned by a Swiss and Italian immigrants. The architecture is impressive and very ornate in places. This is one of the most authentic period home I have seen. You can imagine living there in 1900s. Currently being restored. Lots of little displays, old wine bottles, and some artwork. Most historical information in Spanish, except free guide pamphlet in English. No food or drinks. On main road. Parking on street. 1.5 to 2 miles from Gutierez station.
