Trends / Food & Drink

For any wine aficionados in your group or if you’re just looking for a great foodie getaway filled with champion grapes and South American cuisine, Chile is a wine lover’s dream destination.

 

With a rugged landscape consisting of the better part of South America’s West Coast, Chile is a wonder of diverse landscapes — all contribute to the region’s incredible grape-growing and wine-producing capabilities.

 

Stick with a grouping of beautiful, homegrown and must-see vineyards in the area for an easy few days visiting wineries, meeting locals and getting the lay of the land.

 

Loma Larga Vineyards

This stunning vineyard is a one-stop shop for everyone in your group, serving most palates with a wide variety of wine. Choose from a taste of Sauvignon Blanc, Rosé and Chardonnay, or stick to reds like Saga, Malbec and Syrah. Before you find your flavor, hop on horseback and ride to the vineyard with your expert guide.

 

Kingston Vineyards

A little closer to the coastline is the family-owned Kingston Vineyards in Casablanca Valley. With the coastal air, this region is known more for its white wines, but Kingston Vineyards broke from the mold and brought more reds to the region.

 

Odfjell Vineyards

Technically in the Santiago Metropolitan region, Odfjell Vineyards is a sustainable vineyard rich with reds, organic wines and, of course, stunning views. Walk through the vineyards, taste fine wine and meet resident Norwegian Fjord horses also bred on the estate.

 

With the expansive Pacific Ocean to one side, lush valleys surrounded by epic mountain ranges to another and a historic city capital, Santiago, somewhere in between, visitors get far more than just a wine-tasting region in Chile.
