Santiago: Half–Day Santa Rita Vineyard Tour

1. Santiago: Half–Day Santa Rita Vineyard Tour

After pick–up from your hotel in the morning or afternoon in an air–conditioned van, head approximately 40 minutes south of the city. On the road the guide will give you an introduction to the Maipo Valley and the vineyard that you are going to visit. This is a perfect moment to ask questions you may have about the lives of Chileans and their traditions. Close to the vineyard is a little town called Alto Jahuel, where the people of Santiago go to escape the noise of the city. When you arrive at the vineyard, see the majestic landscape and the big house before the tour starts.   Begin your guided tour through the vineyards, starting at the wineries and finishing with the wine bottling process. Visit the historic Bodega 1 made of cal y canto, and the famous national treasure, Bodega de los 120 Patriotas. The tour finishes with an amazing wine tasting of some great aged wines. Afterwards, you have time to buy some souvenirs or if you prefer, some bottles of wine to enjoy later.

Venture over to the old upscale neighborhood of the city center and be mesmerized by its architecture. Then explore the civic center, including the cathedral, parade ground, and Palacio de La Moneda. Depending on which option you choose, climb to the top of San Cristobal Hill in the biggest urban park in Santiago or the Santa Lucia Hill (or both).

If you choose the full-day option with a winery visit, head south for lunch at a country restaurant surrounded by nature. After lunch, choose between a visit to the Santa Rita, Concha y Toro, or Undurraga wineries for wine tastings and a tour of the wine estate.

Our tour was wonderful and our guide did an excellent job of navigating languages and showing us the city. There was, however, a mismatch between the description of the tour and actual tour. We were expecting a 4 1/2 hour tour, but our tour was slightly less than three hours. (We didn’t go to Santa Lucia Hill as in the description.)

I liked that they picked me up at the address of my convenience, with an extra cost to pick me up very accessible, the very friendly staff and the tour of the farm and the tasting were sensational!

Very good walk to take advantage of the day, Don Orlando our guide very concerned, the tour of the vineyard very good, delicious wines, beautiful landscapes and a lot of history
