Chile's Wine Country for Couples
Santiago, Chile — 9 Days
Chile is often known as the 'thin country,' making it a land of extremes, from glaciers in the south to deserts in the north. The Colchagua Valley, in central Chile, is considered one of South America's most promising wine regions. Its climate is often warm, but cooled by ocean breezes and dry, but refreshed by rivers and occasional rainfall. The Tinguiririca River is a key feature in the region as it brings clear melt water down from the Andean peaks to the valleys and vineyards below, transporting silts and clays with it and creating ideal soils and terrains for viticulture. Chile’s finest red wines are made here, mostly from Cabernet Sauvignon, Carménère, Malbec, Merlot and Syrah. Throughout the trip we will have the opportunity to foment cultural exchange when meeting and talking with locals on various occasions.
