Day 01

Today we’ll head from your hotel at 9 AM towards Maipo Valley. Famous known for its Cabernet Sauvignon, our first visit will be to boutique winery Perez Cruz.

The natural conditions of the Maipo Alto Valley for the production of red wines, led Perez Cruz to choose the best varieties for its terroir. The 140 hectares of vines are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenére, Merlot, Syrah, Malbec and Petit Verdot. The principal aim of Perez Cruz Vineyard is to produce fine wines, with a proper identity but that expressed all the qualities of the Maipo Alto, the cradle of the Chilean premium wines.

We will tour around the vines and the production building including a tasting of two wines.
Afterwards, we’ll continue to Santa Rita winery for tour around the History of Chile and its wines. You’ll be able to visit their facilities, starting at the wineries and finishing at the wine bottling process, visiting the historic Bodega 1 made of “cal y canto” and the famous “Bodega de los 120 patriotas”, nowadays a national treasure. The tour finishes with an amazing wine tasting moment of our Aged Wines, enjoying a Medalla Real Cabernet Sauvignon, a Chardonnay and a Sauvignon Blanc.

Our lunch will be at a local restaurant where you’ll be able to enjoy traditional dishes with Chilean great wines. Once lunch ends, we’ll return back to Santiago, arriving at 17:00 hrs aprox and dropping you off at your hotel.
