Colchagua Valley Wine Tour In Santiago De Chile

Reviews 5/5 Stars - Based on 5 Reviews

Highlights of Colchagua Valley Wine Tour

No other region of the country stands out as much as the Colchagua Valley. Approximately 150 km (93 miles) south of the capital, Santiago, Colchagua is truly blessed when it comes to producing red wines

Warm and naturally dry, but with an abundant water supply from the Tinguiririca River, Colchagua is a narrow agricultural valley that begins at the foot of the Andes and extends westward to the Pacific Ocean.
The approximately 910 hectares in between offer different microclimates, soil types, steep slopes ideal for vineyards and a growing number of wineries that are perfectly capable of producing excellent Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and many fine Carmenère and Malbec wines.

Our groups are small, from 2 to 8 people, an appropriate size to maintain the level almost like a private tour.

Details of Day Tours

Our tour starts from your hotel in Santiago around 8:00 am, to travel towards the Colchagua Valley.

Our first stop takes us to Clos de Apalta, a revolutionary winery dedicated exclusively to the production of Casa Lapostolle's iconic wine, Clos Apalta. The winery is structured in five levels, three of which are buried in the granite of the Apalta hillside to provide a natural cool temperature environment for the winery and aging. This rare vertical design allows the wine to flow naturally downward during each stage of production, eliminating the need for pumping, which can negatively affect the wine's subtle flavors. The grapes are hand-picked and taken to the highest level of the winery, where they are 100% hand-stemmed, a labor-intensive technique performed by very few wineries worldwide.

We then continue on to Viña Neyen; this winery is the perfect blend of tradition and modernity. It was founded in 2002 on the site of one of the area's pioneering wineries dating from the late 19th century. The Carménère and Cabernet Sauvignon vines planted in 1890 now produce excellent fruit thanks to their deep roots and natural balance, allowing us to reap the benefits of the richness and elegance of the passage of time. They are looking for a unique wine that fuses the soul of this land, the valley and the restored winery. In the native Mapudungun language, Neyen means "spirit", and it is the spirit of Apalta that is captured in each harvest.

Finally we arrive for lunch at Viña Viu Manent at Rayuela Restaurant, a charming and cozy place with a panoramic view of the Apalta hills; Chef Christian Adrian manages the kitchen and offers a simple menu of grilled meals such as meat and fish that guests combine with a variety of side dishes of their choice. After lunch we will end the day with a wine tasting at Viu Manent.

We will return to Santiago around 8:00 PM.
