Day 01

The tour starts by driving 2 hours and a half south of Santiago to our first stop, MontGras winery, which has always had state-of-the-art technology in all its processes, set out from its conception to be the winery with the best premium wines from Chile. It is no accident then, the great amount of international prizes that have recognized the professional work, the constant quality and the innovation of MontGras wines. We’ll tour their facilities and enjoy a wine tasting of 3 wines accompanied with some canapés.

* If wanted, we can change Montgras winery and visit Clos de Apalta winery, from Casa Lapostolle.

For lunch, we’ll visit Viu Manent winery where you will enjoy a full rounded experience with Viu Manent wines. In a vintage horse drawn carriage, you will go through the winery, vineyards, cellars and “La Llaveria”, an XXth century Estate that faithfully illustrates Chilean epoch architecture. As well you’ll enjoy wine tasting by the wine vat and return to La Llaveria for the reserve wine tasting. For lunch, we’ll go to their restaurant where the path of tradition, innovation, excellence and the distinguishing style of cooking is well known in the region, enjoying a perfect pairing.

Then we will continue our tour to the best sub-valley of Colchagua, from where come the best premium wines of Chile “Apalta Valley”, visiting our last winery called Viña Montes, their property the “La Finca de Apalta” is located in the middle of the renowned Apalta Valley.

Viña Montes invites you to leave the world behind and experience a unique and unforgettable tour through vegetation that is typical of central Chile on a nature path complete with panoramic views. While out in the vineyards you can enjoy a view of the steep hillsides (with a more than 45-degree incline) and natural environment that is representative of central Chile where they produce the best grapes for our Montes Alpha M, Montes Folly and Purple Angel wines. Inside the “bodega” you can observe the gravitational system that they use to move the wines; their tours offer an opportunity to learn more about terroir by tasting a fine selection of their wines and visiting the winery and vineyards.
