What You Can Expect

Colchagua Valley Winery Day Trip from Santiago

Full-Day Trip to Colchagua Wine Valley from Santiago

Meet your guide at your Santiago hotel and climb aboard a comfortable tour vehicle. Embark on the 2.5-hour drive south of Santiago's city limits to La Postolle winery (or similar), a family-operated viña (vineyard) and one of the country's producers of award-winning wines.

Sit down for a tasting of varietals like carmenere, viognier and syrah while admiring the near rows of grapevines and rolling hills beyond. Get to know the winemakers and ask any questions about the wine production process.

Continue to the town of Santa Cruz, ground zero for the Colchagua Valley's wine-related activities. At Ruta del Vino, a gourmet boutique, pick up your souvenir bottle of reserve wine (included) to take home. 

Take a break for lunch; if you've chosen the 'Tour Plus Lunch' option, head to an intimate local restaurant. If not, take recommendations from your guide or scout a place on your own. 

With your hunger sated, continue to the day's second winery, Montes or Viu Manent. Both wineries produce several award-winning varietals, including malbecs and syrahs. 

End your day at the Colchagua Museum (Museo de Colchagua), back in Santa Cruz. Geat a look at Chile's history through displays on the country's pre-Columbian cultures and some 300-million-year-old fossils. 

Return to your Santiago hotel for drop-off at the conclusion of your 9-hour tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

This was a wonderful trip, very well organized and the staff and driver were all ready with information and providing for your comfort. Beautiful countryside and people. My tour also provided for the museum in Santa Ana and it was fantastic with many more rooms and items then most museums have, there was a English movie before the tour and even though the tour person did not speak much English, she tried to help and describe many of the things of interest.

4 star rating: Recommended November 2014

The tours were great, vineyeards and winerys were amazing and worth 4 stars but the down fall was the start of the day. Once I confirmed pick up was sent an email confirming pick up time at 8:00am. Driver and guide did not turn up until 9:00am. Not a good start. Guide's english was ok but not great so no decent explanation of our tour, history or particulars about Chile like the other tour guides. Would have been the perfect tour if we had the right pick up time and a tour guide that was bit more than a pick up and drop off
