Our two-day Colchagua tour takes us via the Alto Maipo wine region to the entrance of the Colchagua valley. Visit three distinctly different wineries over the course of the first day. After an overnight stay, you’ll enjoy a further three wineries in the valley before returning to Santiago.
First stop is a family-owned winery recognized both nationally and internationally for consistency and high quality. Visit their uniquely-designed and modern “bodega”, constructed to be in complete harmony with nature. Hear about the key factors that influence their wines. Experience first-hand the difference between American and French oak. Enjoy a tasting of three of their quality wines accompanied with a cheese board.
We then drive to the entrance of the Colchagua Valley to our next winery. You will enjoy an a-la-carte lunch (not included in price) in a beautiful setting with a view over the polo field.
After lunch, you’ll take a short tour of the colonial buildings of this historic winery. Then taste three wines from their Grand Reserve line, the result of their best terroirs.
On our last stop for the day, you’ll meet personally with the owner at a small production “garage” winery. Hear about their concept for “Slow Wine” and enjoy a conversation and glass of wine in a truly relaxing environment.
You’ll then be dropped off at your pre-arranged accommodation (not included in price) for a relaxing evening.
You’ll be picked up from your hotel for your first winery. Visit an historic winery where you’ll take a tour through the vines in a horse-drawn carriage. See the wine making process and taste a wine in-progress, straight from the tank. Return to the colonial tasting rooms to sample a further 5 wines from their extensive range.
We then head into the Apalta valley, a sub-region of the Colchagua Valley known for the best quality reds in Chile. You will enjoy a panoramic view over the beautiful valley while enjoying a tasting of three premium wines accompanied by local cheese.
Next it’s off to lunch for a truly special gastronomic experience at a French-influenced winery. The menu consists of four delicious gourmet courses, each matched with a specially selected wine from their Cuvee line. Experience the personal service of this Relais & Chateaux restaurant, while taking in the stunning view over the valley and vineyards.
After lunch, tour the architecturally amazing facilities of this organic and bio-dynamic winery, following the wine making process on its gravitational path. Then, enjoy a taste of three wines from their range, including their icon wine.
You can then relax while you’re transported back to Santiago at the end of an amazing two days.
