Central Wine Valley

The Chilean central wine valleys lie between the western Andes and the Pacific Ocean. The region benefits from Mediterranean temperatures and ideal soils for cultivating grapes. Chile is now a true leader in award winning new world wines with a global reputation for quality production and a leader in organic viticulture.

The valley climate is extremely agreeable, especially so for winter sun, long sunny days and cooler nights are perfect growing conditions for Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot.  Over the past decade a clutch of exclusive lodges have sprung up on wine estates from the Colchagua Valley in the south to San Antonio in the centre of the valley and within an hour of Santiago.

Not only will you benefit from the expert knowledge of sommeliers and fine cuisine but you will also have the oppotunity to explore the vineyards and estates on horseback or bicycle returning to luxurious surroundings and al fresco lunches with stunning valley views and exquisite service.
