Wonderful tour in Santiago region
Our hotel organised this tour with Patricia after we told them what interested us. My husband and I loved our day with Patricia tasting wine and exploring Valparaiso. Her knowledge of the city was amazing and we saw many really interesting and hidden parts of this exciting and energetic city. The winery she took us to was very good indeed and our lunch at the restaurant she suggested was equally good. ... more Patricia is very knowledgeable about Chilean society, both contemporary and in the past, its history, politics and geography. We both felt that it was a great day of tourism. Thankyou Patricia and I would highly recommend this tour to anyone.

A perfect day touring and tasting the best wines in the heart of Chile’s Wine Country, the Colchagua Valley. Enjoy a gondola ride at Santa Cruz Vineyard and a horse-drawn carriage ... moreride at Viu Manent.

One of the country’s most famous wine regions, the Colchagua Valley, set in the heart of the Central Valley, 100 miles (160 kilometers) from Santiago, is the epicenter of wine production in Chile. Production started here shortly after the Spanish conquest in the mid-16th century with the introduction of vineyards by Jesuit missionaries. The mining boom of the late 19th century brought wealth and noble grapes of French origin. The area is known for its award-winning Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Syrah and Carmenere.

After a three-hour drive to Santa Cruz, the region’s capital, we first stop at Viña Santa Cruz. Here you will see the place where the Body connects with the Soul. Begin your tour by conquering the Body. In the garden of varieties you will learn how to differentiate their strains, then you will continue to their winery to learn about the wine-making process and enjoy the tasting of three of their exclusive wines. Then you will know the Soul by using the cable car to appreciate the most amazing views on your way to the top of El Chaman Hill. There, you will learn firsthand how the Aymara culture, Mapuche and Rapa Nui lived in harmony with nature and their environment through their rituals and beliefs, but especially, you will meet their guides Machi and Chaman, the inspiration behind the vineyard’s wines.

After Santa Cruz Vineyard, we will go to a local countryside restaurant for lunch (not included).

In the afternoon, we will visit Viu Manent Vineyard, a model for wine tourism in Chile. Climb aboard a horse-drawn carriage for a remarkable experience visiting the historic Malbec Hall, gardens, and wine cellars. Explore the wine shop and handicraft emporium. The visit ends with a tasting of the vineyard’s best wines. Internationally renowned for the quality of its wines, Viu Manent is particularly famous for its Malbec.
