Gonzalo M.

Santiago, Chile

I'm Gonzalo born and raised in Chile. I feel like an ambassador of my country and I love to show the atractions to people from all over the world.

They are visiting my home and my biggest challenge is to make them fall in love in with Chile. This is my inspiration.

Santiago and Valparaiso is an amazing area to do all kind of activites. Both cities are full of history and nice places to visit, you also have the ocean and the Andes very close and in between them you have all the wine regions. There are a lot of things you can do and I'm right here ready to show you the best spots!.

I have been related to the wine industry for more than 8 years now. I have also taken some wine courses (WSET 1 & 2, Sommelier school and Winemaking). I have travelled the world working in the vineyard, wineries and also as a sommelier on board of a cruise line. My goal is to connect wine lovers with Chile through the wines and gastronomy. I'm the bridge between high quality wines and wine adventurous who want to smell, taste and see something different. Chile is not only about Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, our country is very diverse, there are many jewels that I would love to share with you!

Let's make a toast together in front a great view with a delicious chilean wine, sounds like a good plan isn't?

A Recent Review of this guide

Gonzalo and the driver Claudio designed a personalized tour for our group of 8. His knowledge of the area ensured that we had a wonderful day touring the Casablanca wine region, Viña del Mar and Valparaiso. Gonzalo has a very friendly and welcoming demeanour, and his English is excellent! He gave us great advice in exploring other Santiago, Chile areas which helped make our stay in the city very enjoyable. I highly recommend Gonzalo as a tour guide as we had an outstanding day!
