Overview
Throughout the world, Chile is famous for its wine so for wine lovers, no visit to Santiago would be complete without checking out some of the surrounding wineries. Discover the wine regions of Santa Rita and Concha y Toro on a day trip that includes round-trip transport, which leaves you free to indulge in multiple tastings.
Highlights
    What to Expect
    After hotel pickup in Santiago, sit back and relax during the scenic drive to Santa Rita Winery. Boasting a dramatic backdrop of the Andes Mountains, the sculpted gardens and verdant splendor of the winery prove a spectacular sight. 

    Greet your knowledgeable guide and begin your tour of the sprawling vineyards, learning about the 19th-century origin of the vineyard as you wander. Explore the fermentation cellars and bottling plant to enrich your knowledge of traditional production methods, and then stand before the historical structure of Bodega 1 for a glimpse of typical colonial construction. 

    Venture to the legendary landmark of Don Paula Restaurant, an establishment declared a national monument due to its colorful past. Hear about the 120 battle weary rebel soldiers who sought refuge in the restaurant, and how the courageous owner accommodated the revolutionaries. Sample the three varieties of the signature 120 wine, dedicated to this historical legend. Spend your remaining time at Santa Rita strolling the gorgeous gardens or observing the intriguing artifacts in the on-site Andean Museum. 

    Next, return to your minivan to begin the short journey to Concho y Toro, stopping at a local restaurant on the way for refreshments (own expense.) Admire the winery’s picturesque position, enveloped by the Andean foothills, as you begin your tour of the Pirque Vineyards. Learn about cultivation and harvest methods as you walk amid sprawling vines, then descend into the atmospheric depths of the Cellar of the Devil to hear tales of the winery’s eccentric former owner. 

    Educate your palate by sampling a sublime selection of wines in the elegant bar, trying signature wines such as Casillero del Diablo. Before returning to the minivan, purchase special souvenirs from the wine shop then relax during the smooth journey back to Santiago.

    The wine is amazing in both of the wineries. Our guide Valentina and the driver Alejandro are very nice. Answer all the questions and take good care of us. Highly recommend for non-Spanish speakers.

    I learnt so much about wine on our tour. Eduardo was great and took so many great photos of us, which he sent via WhatsApp. Hermenes was our driver. The wine from Concha y Toro was delicious.

    I found Turistik to be well-organised, professional and extremely helpful and considerate throughout the day. When the only tour of the Concha y Toro winery available was in Spanish (my Spanish is moderate at best), Eduado offered to stay with me and translate anything I didn’t

    We did this full day tour while we were in Santiago for 5 days recently & would highly recommend it. It gives you a chance to get out of the bustling city & see some of the countryside. While both wineries are spectacular, we particularly liked the Santa Rita property with its

    I was in Santiago for a week, and I had a Sunday available with me for relaxing after a long trip from Tokyo to Melbourne to Santiago. I spoke with the hotel staff, and they kindly guided me to this brochure from Turistik. Upon speaking with concierge, I decided to book a tour.
