Wine Tour around Colchagua Valley Santiago De Chile, Chile

Uncorked Wine Tours  00560894

No other region in the country stands out as much as the Colchagua Valley. Approximately 150 km (93 miles) south of the capital city, Santiago, Colchagua is truly blessed when it comes to producing red wines. Warm and naturally dry, but with an abundant water supply from the Tinguiririca River, Colchagua is a narrow agricultural valley that begins at the foot of the Andes and extends west to the Pacific Ocean.


The approximately 910 hectares (2,250 acres) in between offer many different microclimates, soil types, steep hillsides ideal for vineyards, and a growing number of wineries that are perfectly able to make excellent Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, and many good Carmenère and Malbec wines.

Our groups are small, from 2 to 8 people, an appropriate size to maintain the level almost like a private tour.

Sample Itinerary:

We pick you up from your hotel and set off from Santiago at 8:00 in the morning heading towards Valle de Colchagua, a 2:30 hours drive.

Our first stop takes us to Clos de Apalta; this revolutionary winery is solely dedicated to the production of Casa Lapostolle’s world-class icon wine, Clos Apalta.

The winery is 100% gravity-fed spanning five levels, three of which are buried into the granite of the Apalta hillside to provide a natural cool temperature environment for cellaring and aging. This rare vertical design allows the wine to flow naturally downward during every stage of the production, eliminating the need to pump, which can adversely affect the subtle flavors of the wine.

Grapes are hand-harvested and brought to the highest level of the winery where they will be 100% hand-destemmed, a labor-intensive technique performed by only very few wineries throughout the world.
