Chile's most awarded reds


Chile recognizes five distinct wine regions. By far the most important of these, in terms of quality and quantity is the región of Colchagua which is located at 160 KM from Santiago.
The phrase Ruta del vino (wine route) refers to a region where you can tour various vineyards in two or three days. This full day program includes two visits during the day. One in Apalta valley, a reknown sub-región within Colchagua where many international red winners have been awarded in the last few years. A second visit is schreduled after having lunch into another vineyard state close to Santa Cruz. Colchagua is the most traditional región of Chile from local "huaso" or ranger to its manoir style constructions still there to testify the roots of Chilean Aristocracy started in colonial times.
