Premium Wine Tasting
Maipo Valley, Chile
Our exclusive tour begins with a visit to Perez Cruz, a boutique winery located on the estate grounds of the Perez Cruz family in the Maipo Alto valley. The vineyard is surrounded by beautiful scenery which complements the modern, elegant architecture of the manor.
After sampling the Maipo Alto valley's finest wines at Perez Cruz, we continue to the legendary Concha and Toro winery in Pirque. An interesting tour awaits us, covering the company's history while walking through the vineyard’s extensive grounds. We visit the famous wine cellar, home to many legends, then enjoy a special tasting session of four varieties of the vineyard's prestigious, internationally-acclaimed Marques de Casa Concha wine. The wine is accompanied by a selection of cheeses, nuts, dried fruits and freshly baked breads.
After the tasting we enjoy a delicious lunch in one of Pirque’s local restaurants, Tesoros de Chile. A beautiful restaurant housed in a heritage-rich Chilean casona from the nineteenth century. Its restaurant is home to a delicious-tasting menu with recipes from different regions of the country, offering an entertaining and authentic journey throughout Chile and its different cultures.
The tour then continues with a visit to the Aquitania Winery*, founded in 1984 by two Bordeaux residents looking for high-quality Chilean land to plant a vineyard. Here we’re taken on a tour of the vineyard and told of its successful history. Then we continue on to the wine cellar where we enjoy an exquisite tasting of their different wines. After tasting all the exquisite wines this tour offers, we will be driven back to our hotel in Santiago.
* Aquitania Winery is closed on Saturdays and Sundays. If you book a weekend tour, lunch will be at the prestigious Santa Rita winery, followed by a wine tour at the same place.
