The Maipo Valley is the closest Chilean wine region to Santiago. It is a historic wine-producing region and the birthplace of the Chilean wine industry with vines growing there for the past 150 years.

We first visit Santa Rita Vineyard, which dates back to the 1880s and plays an important role in Chilean history as the site of one of the battles during the War for Independence. Admire the old hacienda-style Estate house and enjoy your wine while you stroll through the old cellars. You will see the grape variety garden, vineyards, winemaking and cellaring facilities, and bottling process, visiting “Bodega 1” – the winery’s first cellar and the “Cellar of the 120 Patriots”. You will discover the exciting story that gives 120 its name. The tour ends with a tasting of Reserva and Gran Reserva wines.

After the tour, you can visit the neighboring “Museo Andino” (Andean Museum), which contains a special collection of pre-Columbian pottery, textiles and other artifacts. We then will continue through the Maipo Valley to the town of Pirque with time for lunch (not included).

After lunch, we will visit the internationally-renowned Concha y Toro Vineyard, which dates back to 1883. The founder was Don Melchor Concha y Toro who brought the first vines that were planted from the Bordeaux region in France to Chile and grew prosperously in the Maipo River basin. Walk around the gardens of the summer residence of the Concha y Toro family, discover the variety garden, visit their cellars and taste a selection of three of their fine wines.

“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!”
