Description

The Undurraga Winery, located in the Maipo Valley near Pomaire, is the place to enjoy of an incredible setting with antique trees, historic cellars and reserve wine tasting.

Depart from your hotel in Santiago to Piedras Australes handicraft shop where you will be able to enjoy a "Pisco Sour" while appreciating beautiful pieces of lapis lazuli. After this stop you will go head straight into the Maipo Valley with its beautiful countryside landscapes; mixing sun, wind and winter rain, creating the perfect Mediterranean climate conditions that make of this a valley specialist in the cultivation of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes.  The salts carried in the Maipo River waters, irrigate the fields, forming a unique equilibrium between flavor and acidity in its wines.

 Here you will find the Undurraga Vineyard, founded in 1885 by Francisco Ramón Undurraga who planted French and German vine stocks. The vineyard is proud to have been in the same family for five generations. Home to a great park with ancient trees of over 150 years and a mansion that received illustrious visitors during its time, visit the Aliwen corner where you can learn about Mapuches, the native people.  Undurraga produces more than 15 million liters of wine per year in its 140 hectares, being one of the oldest and most important wineries in Chile. Tour the winery and wine cellar, to learn about the wine making process and taste some of its final products.

 

Concluding your visit, it is time to return to your hotel in Santiago.
