Description of the activity
Discover by bike the most scenic region in Ticino: Mendrisiotto!
The starting point of your experience is at the Mendrisiotto Terroir office in Balerna. Here you will meet our guide who will accompany you along the entire route and who will give you a bike and a helmet. Ready, set, go!
Your first stage includes a visit to a traditional wine cellar in the region and is intended as an opportunity to learn more about the wine-making process. Once back on your bike, you will continue your exploration of the vineyards of the Mendrisiotto, a region often referred to as the "Tuscany of Switzerland".
Thirsty? Our guide will organize a tasting of excellent Merlot wine for you in the middle of a vineyard. In the shade of a beautiful pergola and with a breathtaking view of the entire Mendrisiotto in front of you, you will learn to recognize the aroma and taste of a good glass of wine! Once you have finished your stop and are back in the saddle again, you will follow the guide who will take you through some vineyards to reach the starting point of your excursion where the grand finale awaits you: a tasting of regional wines accompanied by a rich aperitif prepared with products from the region!
