Visit some of the best wineries in Chile: Emiliana, Quillay, VOE, House of Morandé and Bodegas RE!
We will drive north-west of Santiago to a typical Chilean stop at the Curacaví Valley to see how they make empanadas, one of the most typical dishes of Chile. We will learn how they are made in adobe ovens and then we will try them. It will be an exclusive outdoors tasting of this great dish. We will then continue to the Casablanca Valley to visit the organic winery Emiliana. Ever since Viñedos Emiliana began in 1986 one of its primary concerns has been the care and management of the land. This is essential for complying with the basic Emiliana premise: "Quality begins in the vineyard. " We will tour their facilities and taste their wines. Then we will stop close by at Viña Morandé, whose gastronomic centre and restaurant offer first class cuisine accompanied by their best wines. It is the perfect place to do wine pairing, have lunch and then visit Bodegas Re. Learn about their ancient winemaking techniques, which combine traditions with modern technologies. After the tour, we will go back to your hotel.
