Itinerary

Day 1: Outdoor activity and wine tasting at Vik winery

Colchagua, Chile

You will be picked up from your hotel in Santiago at approximately 8:00 AM to embark on a journey to the stunning Colchagua Wine Valley, renowned for hosting some of Chile's most celebrated wine labels. Our first destination within the valley is VIK Winery, where you'll have the option to choose from three outdoor activities: horseback riding, trekking, or bicycling, allowing you to delve into the picturesque landscape amidst the vineyards.

Next, we'll indulge in a delightful lunch paired expertly with VIK’s signature wines, set against the breathtaking backdrop of their vineyard and the Millahue Valley. The meal is carefully crafted to showcase the local produce of the region alongside the exquisite flavors of VIK's wines.

Following lunch, there will be a moment to unwind before we proceed with the vineyard tour and wine-tasting session. Our knowledgeable guides will elucidate on the winery's approach to precision viticulture, from the meticulous care in the grape fields to the refined techniques in the winemaking process. The tasting experience will feature a glass each of Milla Cala, La Piu Belle red, and Icon VIK, in addition to two barrel samples: a Cabernet Sauvignon and a Carménère.

After a day filled with enriching activities, we'll hop over to our hotel for a delicious dinner and a well-earned night's rest.

Overnight at Noi Blend Colchagua (4 star accommodation)

Day 2: Hiking at Neyén Winery & Visit to Clos de Apalta Winery

Colchagua, Chile

Today, we'll begin the day with a visit to beautiful Neyén Winery. These vineyards require minimal intervention. This is because granitic, volcanic soils from the mountains and the river’s clay loam soils allow for natural drainage and all of the wine is produced with organic practices.

Here we'll enjoy a 2-hour morning hike through the vineyard, enjoying incredible natural landscapes and flora and fauna. Afterwards we'll head to the barrels for a visit and enjoy some wine tasting before feasting on a delicious country-style picnic with wine.

Once we have enjoyed the picnic, we will continue our excursion to the Clos de Apalta vineyard, notable for its unique terroir and its innovative winery that uses the force of gravity for optimal winemaking, thus ensuring the exceptional quality of its wines. The experience in this vineyard lasts just over an hour, culminating with a tasting of its exquisite wines.
