LThe first stage includes a visit to a traditional cellar of the region and is intended to be an opportunity to explore the theme of the winemaking process. Back on the bike, you will continue pedaling to explore the vineyards of Mendrisiotto, 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 charming pergola with a breathtaking view over the entire Mendrisiotto area, you will learn to recognize the aroma and flavors of a good glass of wine!

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