Drink and be merry, as you discover and taste unique and delicious Chilean wines. By the end of this tour, you’ll feel like a sommelier as our local guide Patricia, a Chilean wine enthusiast, shows you around one of Chile’s best wine valleys. You will visit the Colchagua Museum in the city of Santa Cruz to learn about the history and geology that has led Colchagua Valley to become Wine Spectator Magazine’s 2005 Best Region for Wine Production. Then, taste the famous wines for yourself at two quintessential and traditional Chilean vineyards, both of which have been in business for over 80 years! You will also be invited to enjoy a high-end Chilean-style lunch at one of the vineyard’s charming restaurants overlooking the rolling hills of the valley.

Born and raised in Santiago, Chile, I have a passion for showing visitors around my beautiful country. Ever since I was young, I always knew I wanted a job where I would meet people from around the world and discover new things. During my university studies, I focused on architecture and translation, combining my love of art, humanities, and language into one. After I graduated, I became a translator, and from then on, I was hooked on tourism. Working with tour guides made me realize just how much I, too, wanted to show off my favorite parts of the country, like Chile’s scenic vineyards, fascinating cultures, and ancient history.
Throughout my years as a guide, I have never grown tired of sharing my knowledge for the region, and I’ve loved learning new things from the people I’ve met along the way. During my tours, I can show you the incredible flora and fauna in the Andes, what the country was like before it was named Chile, and how the region’s finest wines are made. I believe history should be interactive and fun, which is why my country is my classroom. Let me share with you my unique perspective, and I promise that you will truly get to experience Chile’s intriguing past and how it has led to its colorful present.
