Why Visit Chile?

Chile is the long stretch of land on South America’s western edge which boasts an incredible 6,000 km of Pacific Ocean coastline. Its capital city, Santiago, is home to around half of Chile’s population - that's over 5.6 million inhabitants. But if you travel outside of the city to the rest of the country, you will find open space, gorgeous green countryside, emerald forests, impressive glaciers and fjords. Any nature lover will feel spoilt with the diverse landscapes found in Chile, which also include volcanoes, arid dunes and thriving valleys.

Booking your wine holidays to Chile will mean securing your chance to experience one of the biggest and most important regions in the world. For a new world wine region, Chile has a rich history in wine production. It is a country cascaded with a variety of wine regions which is also reflected in the wineries of the country; modern, antiquated, and simply captivating. Not too far from the capital, wine tourists and oenophiles will find the pleasing sight of glorious valleys, wineries, rivers and picturesque vistas. Visit Chile’s winegrowing regions such as Casablanca Valley, Valparaiso and the stunning Aconcagua Valley where divine reds grow in the foothills of the Andes mountains. Here, you will discover grape varieties such as Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Carménère.

As you venture through Chile, be sure to experience impeccable wine and food tours to pair the best of Chilean wine with traditional treats! Explore the valleys of Maule, San Antonio and Colchagua and take delight in the sights and sounds of the majestic vineyards whilst on your wine tasting holidays here.

Santiago is great in the summer months too, but if you're travelling to central Chile, the best time to explore is during the spring or autumn harvest . For those interested in skiing, winter is the best season to visit.
