In Chile, the wine experience is as varied as the topography, but the most remarkable wineries all have one key ingredient in common: innovation. 25 years ago, a small group of winemakers saw raw potential in the previously unplanted Casablanca and San Antonio Valleys. Today these two valleys have gained international acclaim for their cutting-edge technology and their deep commitment to terroir, producing some of Chile’s most noteworthy white wines and cool-climate reds. Discover this microclimate, tucked between the mountains and the sea, from the most revealing viewpoint of all: the air.
Head out to the Casablanca Valley by car and wake up your palette at Loma Larga, named “Winery of the Year 2011” by Wine & Spirits magazine. Tour the grounds and taste award-winning wines before lifting off in the awaiting helicopter for breathtaking aerial views of the vineyards spread out below.
Touch back down in the neighboring San Antonio Valley at the state-of-the-art winemaking facilities of Matetic. Enjoy a splendid lunch and learn about the organic farming methods practiced here on a tour of the modern installations before returning to Santiago or continuing on to Valparaíso.
