BIKE'N'WINE - CYCLING IN THE MENDRISIOTTO TO DISCOVER WINE

WHAT IT IS ABOUT
 

We propose you to discover the most vineyard region of Ticino by pedaling: the Mendrisiotto!


The starting point of the experience is in Balerna, after which you will be accompanied all the way by bicycle by a wine expert from the region.

 

Ready Set Go!


The first stage includes a visit to a traditional winery in the region and is an opportunity to deepen the theme of the winemaking process. Once back on the bike, you will continue pedaling to explore the Mendrisiotto vineyards, a region often referred to as "the Tuscany of Switzerland".

 

Our guide will organize a tasting of the excellent Merlot wine in the middle of a vineyard. In the shade of a suggestive pergola with a breathtaking scenery over the whole Mendrisiotto, you will learn to recognize the scent and flavors of a good glass of wine!

 

After the stop and get back on the saddle, following the guide who will lead the participants through different vineyards, we will reach the starting point again, where the grand finale will be served: a tasting of local wines accompanied by a rich aperitif prepared with products of the region !


A one-of-a-kind experience suitable for both beginners and wine lovers.
