Description

Join this full-day wine tour, where you will get to know the city of Valparaiso and the Casablanca Vineyard. First, spend time in the vineyard, where you will take a walking tour of the Emiliana vineyard. Learn of how the organic grapes are harvested after tasting 4 selections of wine. Then, move on to Valparaiso, where your guide will lead you and your small-group of no more than 7 on a city tour.

Start the tour with departing from your Santiago hotel in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan. Begin the scenic drive through Santiago's outskirts, including Casablanca Valley. Upon your arrival in the valley, make your first visit to the organic vineyard, the Emiliana Winery. Despite its late start in wine production, Casablanca Valley has gained recognition worldwide in particular for the production of white and red wines. Take the opportunity to taste 4 different wines produced here, accompanied by a local cheese or chocolate. Take a guided tour of the winery afterwards, where you will also learn how the plants and livestock ensure the organic growth of the grapes.

Next, move on to Valparaiso City, one of Chile's most important sea ports. Start at the port, then move on to Sotomayor Square before taking a trolleybus ride to Anibal Porto Square. Climb into the Queen Victoria elevator to attain a panoramic view of the city. Wander up and down the streets located on steep hills such as Cerro Alegre and Concepción to see why some say this town reminds them of San Francisco. After visiting the various passages and churches, you will have time to lunch in a traditional restaurant (at own expense). Make your final stop to the first lighthouse built in Chile. Return to the minivan and begin your return to your hotel at the end of the day.
