HIGHLIGHTS
  • Visit the home museum of Nobel Prizewinning poet Pablo Neruda in Isla Negra
  • Relax during a visit to Matetic Vineyard for a winery tour and tasting
  • Shop for local handicrafts and try traditional Chilean food in Pomaire
  • Enjoy a relaxing day away from the hustle and bustle of the city in the coastal town
Find inspiration at Isla Negra with the constant sights and sounds of the waves hitting the rocks on the shore.

Nobel Prize in Poetry winner Pablo Neruda built his house overlooking the Pacific Ocean in search of inspiration in this quiet seaside town. He constructed the building to resemble the interior of a ship, filled with seashells, mementos and treasures from the sea. Gain fascinating insight into Neruda’s eccentric life and works with a tour of his house museum.

We then go for a tour and tasting at Matetic Wine Vineyard, located in the Rosario Valley. The visit begins at the wine cellar reception. This is the perfect place to learn all about the history of the vineyard, organic and biodynamic agriculture and the process of winemaking, while enjoying panoramic views of the Corralillo vines. The tank rooms, the beautiful, peaceful aging room and the architecture of the winery are all highlights of the visit. The tour ends with a wine tasting, either in the underground tasting room or on the outdoor terrace overlooking the vines.

After the wine tasting, we continue our journey to Pomaire, known for its interesting clay pottery and other handicrafts. Pomaire is a wonderful place to visit. This town became an artisan hotspot because of natural clay deposits in the nearby land, causing the pottery industry to boom here. Pomaire is also known for being the home of the largest “empanadas” in Chile!

This is a great and relaxing day out of the city!

“Sean is an excellent tour guide that is a US expat that has lived in Chile for a long time. He is extremely knowledgeable about Chile and provided us with a lot of interesting information about the area. Because this is a private tour, Sean was able to adjust the itinerary to provide more time in the areas where were were most interested. The tour of Neruda's house in Isla Negra was excellent, and the small town of Pomaire which produces a lot of pottery was interesting to explore. Sean also gave us an recommendation for a very good local Chilean restaurant in Pomaire, where we had a very tasty lunch. We highly recommend this tour to anyone who is visiting Santiago, and will definitely contact Sean again in the future for other tours of the area when we return.”

“I highly recommend Chile Dream Tours. My friend and I took two different tours with Chile Dream Tours in April 2019 - Both tours were customized winery tours. We wanted to visit wineries that were unique (e.g., family-owned, organic, unusual varietals, scenic). Sean with Chile Dream Tours found the perfect wineries for us, and we enjoyed every single one! We worked with Sean to arrange the tours, and Genevieve was our tour guide. Sean was amazing - he helped plan and customize our tours so that they were exactly what we wanted. He gave us suggestions based on his knowledge of Chile and he was also very responsive to our interests. He was very good about answering our many questions. And he was very easy to reach - both through email and WhatsApp. Genevieve, our tour guide, was also wonderful! She was very helpful and knowledgeable. She took care of everything we could possibly need during our tours. She was waiting for us when we got off the plane in Santiago (she picked us up at the airport for the first of our winery tours) -- It was very easy to meet up with Genevieve. And then on both of our tours, she took care of everything. We had tons of fun! (That's why we booked a second tour :) I've already recommended Chile Dream Tours to several people, and I plan to use Chile Dream Tours again if (when) I return to Chile. It's fantastic!”
