The Central area of Chile is home to the fertile wine-producing valleys and their many excellent wineries. The principal growing areas, the Maipo, Casablanca and Colchagua Valleys are sandwiched within a 200 km stretch from the Pacific Coast to the high Andes, proving that a lot can be packed into this long and thin country.
Whilst many travellers like to be based in Santiago and take day trips into the winelands, there are some fantastic winery hotels to be experienced. Essentially luxurious lodges or country retreats offering great food (and wine of course!), swimming pools and a range of excursions if and when required.
Whether you are a keen wine enthusiast or simply enjoy drinking the good stuff, a stay at one of the winery hotels works nicely to unwind after a long flight or perhaps at the end of an exciting tailor-made Chile holiday. We can arrange wine and food-themed itineraries, perhaps combined with Argentina’s Mendoza winelands, one of South America’s undoubted gastronomic highlights.
