What You Can Expect

Maipo Valley Wine Tour: Santa Rita and Concha y Toro Wineries

Take winery tours through cellars and vineyards

After hotel pickup in Santiago, sit back and relax during the scenic drive to Santa Rita Winery. Boasting a dramatic backdrop of the Andes Mountains, the sculpted gardens and verdant splendor of the winery prove a spectacular sight. 

Greet your knowledgeable guide and begin your tour of the sprawling vineyards, learning about the 19th century origin of the vineyard as you wander. Explore the fermentation cellars and bottling plant to enrich your knowledge of traditional production methods, and then stand before the historical structure of Bodega 1 for a glimpse of typical colonial construction. 

Venture to the legendary landmark of Don Paula Restaurant, an establishment declared a national monument due to its colorful past. Hear about the 120 battle weary rebel soldiers who sought refuge in the restaurant, and how the courageous owner accommodated the revolutionaries. Sample the three varieties of the signature 120 wine, dedicated to this historical legend. Spend your remaining time at Santa Rita strolling the gorgeous gardens or observing the intriguing artifacts in the on-site Andean Museum. 

Next, return to your minivan to begin the short journey to Concho y Toro, stopping at a local restaurant on the way for refreshments (own expense.) Admire the winery’s picturesque position, enveloped by the Andean foothills, as you begin your tour of the Pirque Vineyards. Learn about cultivation and harvest methods are you walk amid sprawling vines, then descend into the atmospheric depths of the Cellar of the Devil to hear tales of the winery’s eccentric former owner. 

Educate your palate by sampling a sublime selection of wines in the elegant bar, trying signature wines such as Casillero del Diablo. Before returning to the minivan, purchase special souvenirs from the wine shop then relax during the smooth journey back to Santiago.

This was well worth it. I loved the Santa Rita tour especially and both places have great stores with items that are easy to transport home. Some lovely weaving at Santa Rita and the museum there is really worth a look as it the little store attached there. The lunch location that the tour stopped at had very good selections of choices and was by far the best meal I had in the entire trip Pot Roast . Service was awesome and the tour guide was the absolute best - great information all the way, good flow of diverse languages and very knowledgeable about the area. He was even able to give me some advice of where to find the best markets located close to where I was staying. They took great care of me and this was a solo woman's best way to see the country side. Best birthday gift I could have ever given myself!

My husband and I had an enjoyable day on this tour. It was with a small group in a small vehicle which was perfect. The guide was friendly and helpful. Each of the wineries were in a lovely setting and all wines were GREAT ! Both wineries had their own guide, who ran the tour and were very informative. The restaurant selected for lunch (this was a option ) was very quaint .The menu had a good selection and the food was individually prepared, very tasty too. The guide does offer a variety of choices for lunch options,
Lunch was offered between wineries. We recommend this tour.

Really good day out, can't believe I am saying this but by the end of the day I had more than enough wine!

Both wineries offered great tours by their own employees with tastings at the end. Lunch was lovely at a local restaurant. For those without a car, this is a great way to get to the winery, but there's not much else to the tour

The tour was great. The Santa Rita tour was excellent giving you a complete overview of the winery. The tour guide was very effective in explaining the tour. The Concha y Toro was ok but felt like a commercial churn in and out not really excited staff doing the tour. Glad for the Santa Rita tour!

Everyone must go. They show you all the wine fabrication process. As for Concha y Toro, I did not enjoy that much. But the Casillero del Diablo legend worth the tour.
