Chile travel

Wine Tourism

Fertile valleys nestled between the mountains and the ocean are the perfect terroir for some of the best wines in the world. Experience new flavors, aromas and colors with a tasting glass in hand, as you enjoy the sights and sounds of these famous vineyards – a deep-rooted element in Chile’s culture and identity.

Meander through the terraced vines while you sample some of our celebrated white wines. Note the fresh influence of the Pacific Ocean in the elegant sauvignon blancs and chardonnays from the northern and central valleys.

Visit Casablanca and Valparaiso, one of the 10 Great Wine Capitals of the world. Serious gastronomes can experience exquisite food and wine pairings at the stately vineyards in the central region.

Tour underground cellars and old vineyard manors and discover how the experts elaborate the finest wines from sophisticated carménère – the ‘lost’ French variety – or the fuller-bodied cabernet sauvignon in the Colchagua, Maule and Maipo valleys.

For a truly unique experience, visit Chile between March and April when the grape harvest festivals take place throughout the country. What better way to enjoy at first-hand one of Chile’s deepest-rooted traditions?
