Around Santiago Things to See and Do


South of Santiago, the endless sprawling suburbs gradually melt away to reveal Chile鈥檚 most fertile region; orchards, vineyards and pastures make up a blanket of greens, yellows and browns as far as the eye can see. Sip your way through the Ruta del Vino, where vineyards produce what is arguably the best red wine in South America. Nearly all vineyards offer tours and tastings of their vintages, which you can then buy at knockdown prices. Many of the larger estates also offer accommodation, often in traditional haciendas. If you visit in March, you鈥檒l see the grapes  being harvested and pressed. It is possible to take an all-inclusive tour to a vineyard Santiago, which can be a good idea if you鈥檙e short on time or Spanish skills. Otherwise, it鈥檚 far cheaper to organize transport yourself, as the vineyards themselves don鈥檛 charge. Two of the best vineyards are Vi帽a Concha y Toro, one of the oldest in the country, and Vi帽a Santa In茅s. Both offer tours in English.
