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 in the country stands out as much as the Colchagua Valley. Approximately 150 km (93 miles) south of the capital city, 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 west to the Pacific Ocean. The approximately 910 hectares (2,250 acres) in between offer many different microclimates, soil types, steep hillsides ideal for vineyards, and a growing number of wineries that are perfectly able to make excellent Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, and many good 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 first stop takes us to Clos de Apalta; this revolutionary winery is solely dedicated to the production of Casa Lapostolle’s world-class icon wine, Clos Apalta. The winery is 100% gravity-fed spanning five levels, three of which are buried into the granite of the Apalta hillside to provide a natural cool temperature environment for cellaring and aging. This rare vertical design allows the wine to flow naturally downward during every stage of the production, eliminating the need to pump, which can adversely affect the subtle flavors of the wine. Grapes are hand-harvested and brought to the highest level of the winery where they will be 100% hand-destemmed, a labor-intensive technique performed by only very few wineries throughout the world.

We then continue 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 that dates back to the late 19th century. The Carménère and Cabernet Sauvignon vines planted in 1890 now produce excellent fruit due to their deep roots and natural balance, allowing us to reap the benefits that come with the richness and elegance of the passage of time. They look 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 are dedicated to capturing in each vintage.

Finally we arrive for lunch to Viña Viu Manent at Rayuela Restaurant, a very charming and welcoming place with a panoramic view of the hills of Apalta; Chef Christian Adrian mans the kitchen and offers a simple menu of grilled foods such as meats and fish that guests combine with a variety of side dishes of their choosing. After lunch we’ll end up the day with a really nice wine tasting in Viu Manent.

We’ll be back in Santiago around 8:00 PM.
