Departure Point

Traveler pickup is offered
We do pick up passengers from hotels located in Santiago downtown, Providencia, Las Condes and Vitacura. At the moment you confirm the reservation, please send us your hotel information to let you know if your hotel is located in the pick up zone, if don't, we will let you know the meeting point to meet the tour.

Departure Time

7:30 AM
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.
Itinerary
Pass By:  
Santiago
After your hotel pickup from Santiago, your Colchagua Valley day trip starts with a 2.5-hour drive south of the city to La Postolle winery (or similar), a family-operated viña (vineyard) that produces some of Chile's award-winning wine.
Stop At:  
Santa Cruz
Admire the vineyard’s beautiful setting in the shadow of the foothills while you enjoy your tasting of wines such as syrah, viognier and carmenere. Next, head into the town of Santa Cruz, the hub for Colchagua Valley’s wine tours and activities. Visit Ruta del Vino, a wine and gourmet shop where you’ll receive a bottle of reserve wine to take home with you. Then, meet the Colchagua Museum (Museo de Colchagua) in Santa Cruz. Take a break from all the wine with an interesting look at Chile’s history. As you tour the in-depth museum, check out its displays about Chile’s pre-Columbian cultures and the Spanish conquest. You’ll also see 300-million-year-old fossils, admire ancient jewelry and art, and learn about Charles Darwin’s time in the country. After our incredible cultural history, we will take a break for lunch. If you choose the 'Tour plus Lunch' option, go with your guide to a cozy Santa Cruz restaurant (varies by day). If you select the 'Tour Only' option, scout out another restaurant in town, perhaps enjoy a picnic if you’ve brought your own lunch with you, or eat with your guide and group and pay separately.

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

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.
