HIGHLIGHTS
  • A perfect day around Maipo Valley, the birthplace of the Chilean wine industry
  • Discover the ultra boutique Haras de Pirque and beautiful gardens of Aquitania
Come join us for an enjoyable day and visit the boutique wineries of Aquitania and Haras de Pirque. Relax in their gardens, enjoy their wine, the wonderful flowers, and marvelous views. Both vineyards are located near downtown Santiago at the foothills of the Andes Mountains in the Maipo River Valley.

First stop, Haras de Pirque. The visit starts on the main terrace of the wine cellar where the beautiful valley of Pirque and the majestic Andes Mountains can be appreciated. Moving inside the horse-shoe shaped cellar, visitors get to know the winemaking and barrel aging process, followed by a tasting of three wines – Albaclara Sauvignon Blanc, Reserva de Propiedad and Hussonet Cabernet Sauvignon Gran Reserva in their memorable tasting room.

Then, we visit Aquitania, also located at the foot of the Andes. They focus on producing high-quality wines in limited quantities. Visitors have the opportunity to observe the entire process of wine production, where modern equipment is used and traditional craftsmanship, such as the manual labeling of bottles. The tour begins at the lookout of the winery, where you have a panoramic view of the vineyard. This is followed by a close-up look at the vines to appreciate their state depending on the season. The tour continues with a visit to the wine cellar, barrel room, bottle storage room and labeling sector. The tour ends with a tasting of their Reserve wines.

A perfect day away from the crowded, large production vineyards!

“The entire experience from collection to drop off was amazing. The guides genuinely care about the
experience they create for you. The local knowledge they have and are able to share just made the day
even more interesting. Highly recommended”

“We had a very good day out in the Maipo Valley visiting a couple of terrific wineries with Sean from Chile Dream Tours. The Santa Rita and Concha y Torro Vineyards are beautiful properties with excellent wines. Tastings were great. Lunch was at a little community based restaurant between the two wineries and was of excellent quality. Sean is a very good host and the late model vehicle was very comfortable. A top day!”

“We spent a week in Chile and took various tours (of the city, the beach, and the countryside), and this was by far the BEST of all the tours we took. Our tour guide, Sean, has been living in Chile for over 25+ years, and was a wealth of knowledge. We started off our day with a scenic drive through the countryside, and our first stop was Paidahuen. This is an archeological park with incredible views of the Andes. We went on a short hike (about 1 hour round trip), Sean had walking sticks and water for us, and we went at our own pace so we were able to take lots of pictures and soak in the incredible views. Unlike other tour groups, we did not feel rushed, and we were given the freedom to explore on our own. After the hike, we got a private tour of the In Situ winery at the base of the hill. Maria, the general manager of the vineyard, gave us a tour of the grape fields and barrel storage, and even took us behind the scenes to see the manufacturing process, even their bottle labeling process. This was a very complete winery tour, unlike some of the other wine tours we had taken in other areas. After the tour we had a wine tasting of 4 different wines complete with cheese platter. Then we drove about another 45 minutes to the Chilean/Argentinean border to an amazing local restaurant right at the foot of the Andes, with delicious local food, incredible views, and we even saw llamas and alpacas roaming in the back lawn of the restaurant. Our final stop was an alpaca farm in Llai Llai, which is the largest exporter of alpacas in the world. We got the chance to pet and feed the baby llamas, some as young as just a few days, this was by far the highlight of the trip! We also got a private tour of the yarn and clothing manufacturing operation, which was very educational. It was a full day but we loved every minute of it, and we couldn't have asked for a better tour guide than Sean.”
