Our Expert Guide will lead you on an unforgettable tour through two of Buin's most important vineyards: Santa Rita and Pérez Cruz! You will visit the wineries and plantations while discovering the secrets of their unique winemaking production.
First we will explore Pérez Cruz Vineyard, located in the foothills of the Andes Mountains, giving it deep, stony soil low in nutrients, and a Mediterranean climate, making a perfect combination for producing high quality wines. Here, we will visit Pérez Cruz' beautiful wine cellar built from native wood. The cellar boasts two barrel shaped central chambers, exterior arches that allow the wind to gently pass through, and pirca bases reminiscent of the original Inca structures that once stood in the area. The vineyard uses a sustainable gravitational process, with a capacity of 3 million liters, to produce their wines.
Next, we will visit Santa Rita Vineyard, located to the south of Santiago, where varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay and Cabernet Franc are cultivated. Its Mediterranean climate marked by hot and dry summers and autumns, dry, mild winters, and frost free springs, allows for the growth and creation of delicious wines - guaranteed to be unforgettable.
During the tour you will be accompanied by a second level Professional Sommerlier from the Sommerlier School of Chile, who will guide you in a special wine tasting.
Note: Hotel pick up in Santiago for a maximum of 2 people, for 3 or more people, a meeting point will be indicated.
