The Colchagua Wine Country in Chile is one of the most romantic destinations in the country. Here are some of the best things to do for lovers celebrating an anniversary or special getaway:

 

Picnic

Picnic in the vineyard at Vina Las Ninas, a winery owned and operated by the women of three close families. The winery offers pre-made picnic baskets to bring out into the rolling vineyards, where you can sip on some of the Cabernet Sauvignon amid their namesake grapes. Bring your sunglasses and a blanket, you’ll want to relax in this stunning setting for awhile.

 

Bike

The town of Santa Cruz and nearby vineyards can be easily explored on an electric bike. This e-bike company runs daily tours that lead you by renowned wineries like Clos Apalta and Montes. While it would be a challenging ride on a standard bike, the e-bikes allow you to climb hills and ride long distances with little effort. You’ll need that energy for drinking wine.

 

Horse-Drawn Carriage

Take a horse-drawn carriage ride through the 80-year-old vineyards at Viu Manent. Not only will you get a taste of the rich history surrounding you, but you’ll also get to sip on fine wine as you pass through the vineyard in style.

 

Indulge

The best lunch in the Colchagua Wine Country is Fuegos de Apalta at Vina Montes. The restaurant was opened by renowned chef Francis Mallmann and features meat, fish and vegetables prepared either grilled, smoked or baked on an open-fire in the center of the kitchen. You have may seen Chef Mallmann on the Netflix series Chef’s Table.

 

Wine Tastings

After you’ve had your fill of activities for the day, book a few wine tastings throughout the valley. Vina Montes and Clos Apalta offer great, inexpensive wine tastings and tours every day.

Amazon Fire TV Sticks Allow for Streaming Multiple Services

Cable is so expensive, sometimes it is easier to just pay monthly for subscription services like Hulu and Netflix. Some TVs come with those applications already installed, but, if not ,you have to use your laptop and a HDMI cord, which takes a while to set up. Instead, get an Amazon Fire TV Stick.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
