Chile Wine Tours
Chile is an agricultural paradise whose bounty of fruits and vegetables supplies the world’s marketplaces and whose wine graces tables on every continent. A Mediterranean climate and increasingly organic, sustainable farming practices combine to create high-quality wines which are the purest expression of their privileged terroir.
- It’s best to visit Chile’s wine country from October to February when the vines are green and growing, or March to May during the harvest season. A visit to the wineries during the Chilean winter (July to September), however, is also a great addition to any day on the slopes.
- Within a three-hour drive of the country’s capital, there are seven principal wine regions that grow Carménère, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Sauvignon Blanc grapes, among other less-known varietals like Carignan, País, and Petit Verdot.
