What you can expect
Cruise through Chile’s picturesque wine country, stop at some of the iconic wineries of the Maipo Valley and sample fine varietals in the legendary cellars of Concha y Toro.
After being picked up from your hotel, drive over the rolling Andes foothills past rows and rows of grape vines. Pass through the beautiful entrance and gardens of the Concha y Toro Winery and arrive at this world-class vineyard that was once the summer residence of the winery’s wealthy founding family.
Tour the Pirque Viejo vineyard and discuss the characteristics of this wine-growing region and the grapes that thrive here, then grab a glass of Casillero del Diablo Carmenere. This iconic Chilean grape was confused with Merlot until the 1990s but now stands apart as one of the region’s finest varietals.
Next, head down into the underground hallways of the winery’s cellars. Legend has it that Don Melchor de Concha y Toro spread rumours that his cellars were haunted by the devil to discourage thirsty thieves from making away with his prized bottles.
Finally, take a seat at the wine bar for a guided tasting of premium wines as you learn about Concha y Toro’s noble history, various grapes and the proud wine-making traditions that set this Chilean vineyard apart.
