In the hills, red clay composites of volcanic origin sit on top of decomposed granite layers formed 110 million years ago beneath the Pacific Ocean. This soil gives their wines the unique characteristic sea salt flavor.  Casas del Bosque has gained great prestige over the years and in 2010 became the Best Vineyard to Visit in Chile.

This was a wonderful tour for our first full day in Chile. After a very long travel day we booked this trip with Sean from Dream Chile Tours. We got to see a small winery Bodegas RE and it was stunning and so informative. We really enjoyed the wine and conversation. We also got to see a larger winery for contrast. It was neat to see the wine making on different production scales. We also got to head to the beach to see the waves and ships. We had lunch in the town of Pomaire after the wineries and our trip to the beach. We love the souvenirs we picked out and lunch was so delicious. Definitely book this tour it was a perfect day and so relaxing. This company is great we needed up booking two additional days when we arrived back in Santiago.

Ignacio is absolutely great. I had the best time. He surely knows how to avoid the tourists crowds so you can have the best experience almost like a private VIP tour. The landscape was out of this world. All the places were fantastic. Breakfast with Claudia is a magical experience and later on the bbq is perfection. I would definitely do it again in the future. Thank you Ignacio for sharing your culture and places with so much devotion and pride.

We went with a guide who knew the whole place, he showed us the beauty of the box and its silence, and places that only with him we could go, very friendly and helpful, we totally felt paid, and we totally recommend it
