Wine tours - Cultural Tour - Chile

As Chilean wines have matured into worldly nectars, winemakers have also caught on the touristic potential and more and more valleys are setting up tours. So if you want to swill vinos tintos and blancos, sniff out the fruity and woody aromas, learn to tell your cabernet from your merlot and your sauvignon from your chardonnay, just head out to the valleys of Casablanca, Colchaga, Maule or Maipo. Most wine routes (ruta del vino) will take you through several bodegas over the course of a day or two, with visits of the vineyards, wine cellars and of course wine tasting, sometimes with a meal. Guides will explain the fermentation and maturation process in Spanish and often in English.

Prices depend on the length of the tour (from three hours to 12 days) and on whether the wines are premiums. A typical day-long tour to organized by a Santiago operator, with transportation and meals included, will cost between $100 and $200, but you can also arrange directly with wine producers’ associations or if you have your own car, drop in independent wineries. Wine valleys can be visited any time of the year, because of their year-round mild climate, but if you go in the austral fall, from February to April, you have better chances of catching harvest festivals, during which wine-tastings are organized.
