WINE VALLEYS

Chile’s viticultural root goes far back in time when the first Spanish conquerors came to this grape-growing paradise. Soon after, the rootstocks brought from the old Continent grew their own roots, which turned out to be a very valuable genetic material. In fact, the “Merlot” called by Chilean growers for over a century was surprisingly found to be the long extinguished Carménère in France.

Thanks to the winemaking knowledge from European immigrants, the Chilean wine soon started to thrive. In Chile, grape varieties from around the world have found their own oasis, since our country offers so many diverse terroirs from north to south. To let travelers understand why Chilean wine has such a strong character, our wine specialists will explain every detail from the soil, climate and geography, to the human touch of the winemakers. Travelers can pick the terroir of their choice, and a knowledgeable wine expert will accompany their visit to answer every possible question about Chilean wine.

Vineyard visit with VM Elite travel specialists is an entirely exclusive and luxurious experience. The exclusivity comes with our private network. Our tight bonds with Chile’s best family-owned vineyards and boutique wineries allow travelers to enjoy privileged access and an authentic, personalized tour.

Grape varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Carménère, Syrah, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay grow beautifully in this region, and each selection presents subtle differences depending on the terroirs. Chilean wine experts and sommeliers at local wineries will speak to travelers about the bouquets, flavors and body of these fine wines.

The Aconcagua, Casablanca, Colchagua, Maipo, Cachapoal and Maule Valley are key destinations to any luxury wine travel in Chile. In addition to sampling some of Chile’s best wines, travelers can stay in boutique hotels, go on horseback riding routes, bicycle paths and wine museums that enrich the wine country experience.
