The Colchagua Valley is the third most visited valley in Chile, where it is possible to visit more than 25 small and medium sized wineries. Among the 5 main winery tours, we can highlight: Tour to Viña Casa Silva, Tour to Viña Montes, Tour to Viña Viu Manent, Tour to Viña Clos Apalta and Tour to Viña Santa Cruz.
It is located 1 hour and 45 minutes from Santiago, and 1 hour from cities such as Curicó, Rancagua and Pichilemu. Its Mediterranean climate and varied soils make it an ideal place to produce high quality wines. By tradition, since the 90's, its viticulture has been characterised in producing red varieties, such as carménère, sirah, cabernet sauvignon, merlot, however, these last 5 years, new sectors have emerged near the coast, where very good whites are being produced, standing out, chardonnay, sauvignon blanc and gris, and some cold climate reds, such as sirah and pinot noir.
In relation to its tourist development, it is one of the valleys that has one of the most varied offers of gastronomic and hotel services, which make it a true destination. In 2015, it was chosen by the prestigious Lonely Planet magazine as one of the 10 best destinations for a honeymoon getaway.
