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 winery 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 manoir style constructions still found there to testify the roots of Chilean Aristocracy dating back to colonial times.
It starts as early as 08:00 from Santiago and drive Panamerican highway up to San Fernando then detours to the west coast road Santa Cruz. First winery visit by 10:30 until 12:00, then find a place for lunch and second visit in the afternoon.
Drive back to Santiago ending by 7 or 8 pm

Juan Carlos was EXCELLENT. Good English and a good and thoughtful guide. He communicated the whole way with interesting history and commentary. We made many changes prior to the start of trip due to flight issues and he was most helpful in managing expectations. We actually changed our route 24 hours before the start. We were two senior couples with a lot of concern with being worn out - but Juan Carlos was a great listener and very interesting guide who listened and gave us memorably tour.
