Chile Wine Tour

Our Chile Wine Tour takes you on a delicious journey through some of the finest vineyards and winelands in Chile. Among striking scenery of blue and white glaciers and snow capped mountains, join us for a wine tour in the longest country in the world.

The tour starts in Santiago de Chile, the bustling capital bordered by the immense Andes Mountains. From there, you’ll head towards the UNESCO listed town of Valparaíso and to the little seaside port of Viña del Mar.

Then, it’s off to Santa Cruz, where most of Chile’s award winning wines are produced. You’ll visit two wonderful wineries, where you’ll take a tour and learn about the winemaking process specific to the region. Enjoy tastings and samples of premium wines as you take in the views of blue glaciers and snowy mountains.

The tour continues in Santa Cruz with two more visits to wineries, where you’ll learn more about how wine is produced here, including a speciality Cabernet. This region is home to unrivalled wineries and distilleries that have been producing fine Chilean wine for centuries. Among the vibrant colour and culture of Valparaiso and the sweeping landscapes of icebergs and mountains, enjoy seven days of gorgeous scenery and premium wines.
