This private shore excursion begins with a pickup from the Port of Valparaiso.
Travel through the beautiful wine country to Chile´s legendary Concha y Toro Winery. After a relaxing drive from the port, pass through the traditional winery’s grand entrance to spend a pleasant afternoon enjoying the grounds. Your guided winery tour starts at the stunningly landscaped antique gardens just outside the Casona, a mansion that was once the summer residence of the Concha y Toro family.
Cross into the Pirque Vineyards to learn about the growth and development of vines assisted by the meticulous attention of master vineyard keepers. Centuries old history is all around as you explore the ancient Pirque Terraces. Old world taste comes to life with sampling of Casillero del Diablo Carmenere. The wines created from this classic Chilean variety were confused with Merlot for more than a century before rediscovery in the 90's. Today Carmenere is Chile’s emblematic wine.
Then descend underground into the winery’s intriguing system of ancient cellars. Visit “Casillero del Diablo” (Devil’s Cellar), the source of the famous legend that made Chilean wine known around the world. End your tour at the wine bar for a wine tasting, an ideal place to taste premium wines paired with lavish appetizers and cheeses. If you select the wine-only option, sample two wines from the flagship Casillero del Diablo label. Once you’ve met your match, visit the wine shop where the full assortment of ultra-premium Concha y Toro wines are available for sale as well as books and souvenirs to commemorate your visit.
Finally we'll go to Santiago where our transport will leave you at your final destination.
