Maipo Valley winery experiences and wine tours
The Maipo Valley is one of the most traditional wine valleys in Chile, located at the foot of the Andes Mountains. Its viticultural development originated thanks to the French varieties brought in the 19th century, which evolved notably to produce elegant red wines such as cabernet sauvignon, carménère and syrah. It is no coincidence, therefore, that one of the iconic experiences of this Valley is the Don Melchor Collection Tour, a tribute to Chilean cabernet sauvignon. Located in the heart of the Metropolitan Region, the Maipo Valley is only a few kilometres away from Santiago, which makes it easily accessible, even by public transport, being able to do the Concha y Toro Winery Tour, Santa Rita Winery Tour (cover photo Santa Rita Winery), Cousiño Macul Winery Tour, Undurraga Winery Tour, Aquitania Winery Tour, Haras de Pirque Tour, Perez Cruz, among others. This proximity to the city makes it possible to combine a visit to a vineyard with some other experience in Santiago.
