If you choose Chile as your next holiday destination, you shouldn’t miss the opportunity to visit the valleys and vineyards where Chile’s most talented enologists produce some of the world’s best wines! The majority of the Chilean wine production is in the central region, west and south of Santiago. Some of these valleys are under an hour car journey from Santiago and a stay here can be the perfect relaxing getaway at the end of your Chile holiday.
Here you can have the unique experience of staying in a boutique property set in beautifully rural landscapes and surrounded by vineyards. Most offer wine tasting of their production but we do suggest adding a guided wine tour to get a fuller experience.
For a truly unique experience, consider visiting Chile between March and April when the grape harvest festivals take place throughout the country. However, if you plan to travel to the wine region during this time, we advise booking plenty of time in advance as availability can be limited.
This valley 500 km north of Santiago is little known but is one of Chile’s most beautiful natural areas and a great producer of wine and most importantly pisco, arguably the country’s national drink. The Elqui valley is the perfect destination if you want to go to a less travelled place in the country and combining your love of wine with natural landscapes reminiscent of the Atacama desert less the high number of visitors!
