We will travel from Viña del Mar to the Casablanca Valley, which is about 50 km away and is known throughout the world for its immense production and for the refined preparation of white wine in its Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc varieties. This fertile valley is located between the coastal mountains and the Pacific in the valleys of central Chile. Here too varieties of Pinot Noir, Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon are grown and produced a great sparkling wine.
We are going to visit at least two or three vineyards, generally we choose between: Forest houses, Matetic, Indomita, Viñamar, William Cole, Bodega RE or Emiliana. In the vineyards you can participate in a wine tasting, buy local wines at the price of the winery or just take a walk while admiring the landscapes.
I will suggest where the tasting tour is best and where to buy excellent wines at reasonable prices. With my local experience, you can find different and interesting places to add to your experience.
We will have lunch in a very typical place in the area, which is distinguished by a very tasty meal, low prices and generous dishes. Combining the food with an exquisite wine from local vineyards.
At the end of the afternoon we will return to Viña del Mar, usually very tired of a long day.
