Full description
Explore the vineyards and the wine cellars of the renowned winery of Cousiño Macul. Discover the Chilean wine-making tradition as you get acquainted with the history of the winery and wine production. At the end of your tour, taste some of the delicious wines produced here.  The tour begins in the outdoor area where the winery guide will explain about the grapes that produce the best wines - Finis Terrae and Lota. Learn about the quality of the vineyard and the concept about how smaller the amount of grape clusters, the greater the concentration of its compounds. Continue through the winery with the largest barrels in Chile and in the world, made with Chilean oak and with a capacity for 30,000 liters, though no longer used are still a part of history. See many more elements and old pieces that were used for wine production and get to understand the differences between the old and modern day production process. Walk among the huge stainless steel barrels where the wine is processed today and visit the cellars that were built in the 19th century to see how and where the wine is stored. Before the end of the tour, you will partake in a tasting of some of Cousino Macul wines with some guidance on what to see, taste and smell.

Excellent activity. Recommended anyway. Learn more about the history of the Cousiño Goyenechea family. I went with my 81 year old dad and he enjoyed it as a kid. Amaro as a guide is dedicated, detailed and with an excellent disposition.
