From Carménère to Chardonnay, Chile is famous for its world-class wines. Visit not one, but two, of Chile's most celebrated valleys, Colchagua Valley and Casablanca Valley, and uncover the secret behind the vines. On both days, you will head to a different valley, tour two of its best, most unique, vineyards, and of course, participate in exclusive wine tastings. You'll also get to taste classic Chilean food, as you indulge in gourmet lunches with wine pairings.
Discover how both innovative and traditional winemaking techniques can bring out the incredible natural resources of the land, producing some of the finest wines. This two-day tour will not only give you the chance to taste the country's diverse array of wines but also learn about the passion that goes into making the flavors come to life.
Day 1: Touring the emblematic Colchagua Valley
One of Chile’s most iconic wine producing regions, the Colchagua Valley is known not only for the quantity of wine it produces but also the types. Specifically, the region grows Chile’s most emblematic grape, Carménère. Join Chilean Local Guides, Felipe or Elise, as they take you to this sprawling valley, full of some of Chile’s finest Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and of course Carménère. On this tour, you’ll experience two distinguished vineyards, visiting both a small traditional winery and an innovative large-scale one as well.
Day 2: Visit the innovative Casablanca Valley
Just an hour outside of Santiago, the Casablanca Valley is a relatively young wine producing region for Chile, yet today it is home to some of the country’s most celebrated vineyards. Using the latest in winemaking techniques, the valley takes advantage of its cool climate to produce Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Syrah. A relaxed day of wine and culture, discover why how this innovative valley has been elevated to fame.
Born and raised in Santiago, Chile, I’ve always had a passion for Chilean history. In fact, one of my favorite parts of being a guide is volunteering each year during “National Monuments Day,” where I get to teach locals facts that even they may not know about their city’s most historic buildings.
I first decided to become a guide because of my interest in world affairs, history, and intercultural exchange. I thought it would be a great way to meet people and learn about different countries, while also teaching them a bit about my own country. For the past six years, I’ve been doing just that. My job in tourism has given me the opportunity to work in the largest winery in Chile, where I led the training of other guides and helped host private events. During my time there, I was able to develop a keen appreciation and passion for Chilean wines. All these interests - wine, history, and global affairs - have converged into tourism, creating the perfect combination of my passions!
Originally, from Los Andes at the mountains in central Chile, I have also lived between our capital Santiago, and the colonial city of Valparaiso known for its bohemian and artistic vibe.
I am particularly interested in nature, arts, music and enjoy nothing more than rambling around the countryside and cities with character; exploring villages, finding hidden corners, and being surprised by unexpected moments.
My background is Journalism and Social Communication, but since I moved to Rio de Janeiro I've spent the last 12 years working in the Hotel Industry and Tourism. Travelling and knowing other cultures is one of my passions so after living in Brazil, I've decided to improve my English studying in London where I've stayed for a couple of years, and which gave me the possibility of working in the Pub and Restaurants business too.
Now, back in Chile and after all the past experiences I've decided to divide my time between working at a Vineyard in the Aconcagua Valley, volunteering in a non-profit environmental organization, and guiding as I love sharing and showing the beauties of my country.
