DESCRIBTION  


We propose you to discover the most vintaged region of Ticino: the Mendrisiotto!


The starting point of the experience is in Balerna and once you meet your guide you will be accompanied along the entire route by bike.

 

Ready, steady, go...!


The first spot is a visit to a traditional winery in the region which will be an opportunity to learn more about the winemaking process. Back in the saddle of your bike, you will continue cycling to explore the vineyards of Mendrisiotto, a region often referred to as "the Tuscany of Switzerland".

 

The guide will organize a tasting of the excellent Merlot wine in the middle of a vineyard. In the shade of a beautiful "pergola" and with a breathtaking view over the entire Mendrisiotto, you will learn to recognize the aroma and flavors of a good glass of wine!

 

Get back in the saddle again! Following the guide who will lead the participants through some vineyards, you will reach again the starting point of the excursion, where the grand finale will be served: a tasting of regional wines accompanied by a rich aperitif prepared with regional products!


A unique experience suitable for both beginners and wine lovers.
