You will also visit a very special place where old clay anphoras used to celebrate wine in the most natural way possible are kept.
 
After the tour, enjoy a wine tasting of three premium De Martino wines in the main estate house living room. The guide will talk to you about the characteristics of each of the wine and will answer all your questions. 
 
Next, enjoy making your own wine and put into practice what you have learned throughout the tour and tasting. The guide will give you all the necessary tools for the blending process and bottles of wine from different varieties: Carmenere, Cavernet Sauvignon and Syrah. You will take home your own wine with a personalised label.

Juan

Since I was very young I have studied, worked and lived in several countries and in different types of places from small towns to big cities. I´m living in Isla de Maipo because I love nature, wine, horses and I love my job. Discover and enjoy Chilean wine and the best complementary outdoor activities you can do in Maipo Valley: wine tours and tastings, pairings, horseback, trekking and biking.
