Become a winemaker and a poet, all in one day! There’s no better way to understand wine than to make it yourself, which is why local guide Patricia will take you to the famous Maipo Valley to learn the ins and outs of Chilean winemaking. To add to the excitement of tasting the wines, you’ll even get to make your own wine blend, packaged in your own customized bottle. After you’ve walked in the shoes of a Chilean winemaker, you will step into the mind of the Chilean Nobel Prize-winning poet Pablo Neruda. The whimsical house-museum is filled with Neruda’s bizarre collections and unique design aesthetics, allowing you to imagine what it was like to be one of Chile’s most celebrated poets.
Must be 18 years or older to participate in wine tastings
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.
