Bike and Wine Tour of the Maipo Valley

Every week day, morning & afternoon

Taste delicious wine

Ride through the vineyards

A Half-Day Escape By Bike Amongst Chile’s Finest Wines

The Maipo Valley, a hidden oasis on the outskirts of Santiago, is the perfect place to savor the best of Chile’s wine culture. Pedal by the Andean foothills deep into Chilean countryside on either our morning or afternoon tour. We travel along on the edge of the world’s largest vineyard, ending our 9-km outing at a quaint, boutique winery, William Fevre. Imagine yourself on vacation, riding a green bike in the middle of a vineyard with the Andes towering in the background. This unique experience is enough to make anyone envious!

With a La Bicicleta Verde wine and bike tour, you can be more green, support local businesses, and have a lot more fun! There’s no better way to escape the city for a few hours than gently cycling in the fresh mountainous air. The natural beauty and high quality wines originally brought us to the Maipo Valley, but is our vineyard partners, who believe that bikes should be part of our local sustainability, that have convinced us to stay (not that we needed much push!).  The Green Gurus (your guides) are wine experts and will make you feel comfortable during the experience.

MAKE YOUR WAY TO WILLIAM FEVRE

After the first hour of cycling our way alongside the 100 year old vines, we will stop to talk about the birth of the valley and the grapes, focusing also on this unique terrain. During the ride, you have the opportunity to photograph the impressive panoramic views of the mountains.

Your guide will provide a lot of information about the three factors that affect the sugar content of grapes: sunlight, humidity, and soil. Our tour promises not to indulge in wine snobbery! Here, we will focus on the development of the vineyards and the stories of the wine-makers that have made this region famous.
