Mauricio is a true gentleman, I am new to wine drinking but learnt more in the drive to the first winery then I did in three days of tasting in California. His knowledge was amazing. The winery's we visited were exceptional as was the lunch we had at a local chillean restaurant. Possibly one of the best day trips I have ever taken. Highly recommended.
