Description

Discover the beauty of the Colchagua Valley with this private wine tour into the heart of Chile.
 
One of the country’s most famous wine regions, the Colchagua Valley, set in the heart of the Central Valley 100 miles (160 kilometers) from Santiago, is the epicenter of wine production in Chile. Production started here shortly after the Spanish conquest in the mid-16th century with the introduction of vineyards by Jesuit missionaries. The mining boom of the late 19th century brought wealth and noble grapes of French origin. The area is known for its award-winning Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Syrah and Carmenere.  
 
After a three-hour drive to Santa Cruz, the region’s capital, you will stop at Viña Santa Cruz. Here you will see the place where the Body connects with the Soul. Begin your tour by conquering the Body: in the garden of varieties you will learn how to differentiate their strains, then you will continue to the winery to learn about the winemaking process and enjoy the tasting of three of their exclusive wines.
 
Then you will know the Soul by using the cable car to appreciate the most amazing views...
