Sem dúvida, Concha y Toro conquistou, merecidamente, um reconhecimento mundial. O local tem o objetivo de ocupar um lugar na vanguarda de produção de vinhos. Durante excursão de 4 horas, descubra todos os segredos destas centenárias vinhas nas mesmas instalações onde tudo começou.
Esta vinha data de 1883, e foi fundada por Don Melchor Concha y Toro. Ele foi responsável pela plantação das primeiras vinhas trazidas de Bordeaux, França, e escolheu a área de Pirque para iniciar sua produção. A qualidade dos vinhos fez da vinha um alvo de ladrões, gerando a lenda do "Casillero del Diablo".
O passeio é sem graça, pois caminha-se por uma área pequena da propriedade, não entra na casa principal, prova-se 3 vinhos e adentra-se à um depósito de barris (adega). Assiste-se um filme contando a história do Casillero del Diablo e depois: Lojinha... não tinha no pacote a opção de almoçar no local. O guia Jaime e o motorista Rodrigo foram muito simpáticos o tempo todo. Valeu pelos dados históricos e econômicos contados pelo Jaime no caminho.
I purchased this tour to use free time in Santiago before flying to Easter Island. No regrets!! Our guide was amazing! This is a beautiful vineyard where we had lunch before the tour and we were able to purchase wine in the shop after the tour. Time well spent,;we came away with knowledge and memories to share.
Excellent tour, our guide/driver was very good, he offered to take us to a restaurant post tour and the recommendation was perfect.
The Vineyard tour itself was very entertaining, the wines tasted were perfect. A great experience all around.
The vineyard tour itself was excellent, highly polished and professional. The tour was well planned, informative and just the right length. This experience was in two parts- the journey to the vineyard and then the wine tour. We were picked up from our hotel by an independent driver, lovely vehicle and good conversation en route. He organised our tour tickets for us. He waited at the site while we did the tour. The vineyard tour guide was excellent, good standard of English and very pleased to answer questions. She explained the processes of winemaking and of course the wine tasting was fun. Whether it would be better value for money to arrange a taxi and then pay separately at the vineyard might have been worth checking out, although having said that, it was much easier for us to have everything laid on, and we appreciated the drivers conversation about Santiago on our way to Concho y Toro.
We loved the winery tour and tastings of the most famous winery in Chile. The guide was very informative and the tour of the vineyards lovely. After the winery tour, our driver took us to a quaint restaurant in the area. The restaurant was wonderful.
A great drive through the city of Santiago seeing different parts of the city. The tour at the Concha y Toro vineyard was excellent - the grounds were terrific and the tour of the sellers was great. Our guide, Julio, was excellent.
Amazing experience! Patricio, our guide, was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about Chilean culture and history, and gave us bits of information about the different places we passed on our way to the winery. We were entertained for the whole duration of the trip 1.5 hrs approx.
The winery tour itself was pretty cool. It lasted about and hour and focused on Concha y Toro's history, beginning in the founder's home, then making its way to the vineyards, and finally into the famous Casillero del Diablo cellar. There we watched a short history of the cellar's origins. We sampled three different wines along the way, and were gifted the glass we used to drink them in, which I thought was really cool. At the end you can go into the shop and buy some wine.
Finally, we were taken to a pretty nice restaurant very close to the winery, which we thought was really good. After eating we headed back to the city. Overall we loved the experience and would definitely recommend this tour.
