Biking and Sipping Delicious Malbec in Mendoza, Argentina
Mendoza is the center of Argentina's wine industry, and the region is home to more than a thousand wineries. Despite its expansive size, there might not be a better way to experience the area than by bike. Companies like Bikes and Wines offer wine tasting tours through the vineyards of Maipu and Chacras de Coria. About $20 gets you a bike for the day, water, and a map. Make your way to the wineries at your own pace (many are only about a half-mile to a mile apart). Surprisingly, biking that small distance in between tastings allows you to enjoy the wine without getting too sloshed. Remember to start at the most distant winery first, though, to avoid a long ride at the end of the day when all you want to do is curl up and enjoy your malbec buzz.
