Our hostel recommended Baccus VIneyards over Maipu because of a lot of traffic in Maipu. Let me start by saying that Chacras de Coria has a lot of traffic as well. There were several times that I was praying we would not be run over by a truck as we pedaled along. Just want to stress that I think the traffic will be the same, regardless of where you bike for a wine tour in this area. We did have an amazing view of the Andes as we biked along, and the distances were very reasonable. We do a lot of biking at home, so we didn't think it was a rigorous ride - just a little interesting after drinking wine.
We were given a slip from our hostel to give to Baccus VIneyards upon arrival. We were told not to worry about calling for reservations. That was a mistake. We took the public bus from Mendoza - cheap and easy to figure out with help from the hostel. Upon arrival, we found that Baccus was closed. A very nice man (Mauro Sanchez) at the neighboring bike repair and sales shop (Bike Station) was extremely helpful and offered to give us bikes, call Baccus, and work it out with them. We gave him no money up front and took off on the bikes with a map he provided. He literally saved our day. About 20 minutes into fruitless riding around busy streets, a woman in a van (the owner of Baccus) flagged us down. We discussed the miscommunication, recognizing that it was not her fault. She gave us a better map and called several bodegas for us so that we could be part of the tours. It worked out fine. All in all, we enjoyed the day and thought it was fun to do something different. We also know that we were really lucky that so many people helped us out. Thanks, Mauro!!
