Overview

Discover the 'New World of Wine' in Chile and visit two of the oldest and most historic wineries in the country on a full day guided tour from Santiago. Chile has established itself as an emerging producer of great wines and today is your chance to visit some of the most popular wineries leading the way.

Know More about this tour

Cousino Macul was founded in 1856 and is still owned and run by the direct descendant's of Matias Cousino, the original founder. The cellars were built in the French style using 'cal y canto' - a mixture of egg white and lime as 'cement'. You will take a tour of the winery before sampling its produce. The winery is known for its red, particularly merlot.

After a stop for lunch (additional cost) you'll continue your Chilean wine experience at Concha y Toro. Founded in 1883 by Don Melchor Concha y Toro, the winery is today the largest producer of export wines in Chile. Your tour takes in the landscaped gardens of the colonial house, the vineyards themselves as well as a full explanation of the wine making process, including the modern processing plant and the old cellars.

    A lot of fun. What a beautiful drive to the winery and our stop for lunch was at a very nice restaurant. A nice outing for anyone who wants to get out of the city and see the countryside

    This was a really terrific tour! We had such a great time, and the wineries were both terrific. Cousino Macul had a smaller, more personal feel, and Concha y Toro was more of a production-two very different places, but both with very good wine!

    My only change would be to include either time for lunch or have a lunch included. We were picked up at 10:30am and we returned about 6pm. We had about 8 minutes to get empanadas at the restaurant at Concha y Toro, which was a lifesaver!

    I have put in a complaint about this tour to Viator. The supplier did not deliver what we paid for and the supplier did nothing to rectify the situation - very disappointing as we have used Viator for years without any problems.

    The wine is HANDS DOWN amazing....You just need to actually go and do the tastings. I bought a Viator deal with the basic tastings too. I wasn't too fond of the actual tour. I had bought a Viator tour that included Cousino Macul and Concha y Toro...I will say that I enjoyed the tours of Cousino Macul and the wine from Concha y Toro..

    A definite must visit if you go to Santiago!!

    It was excellent. The Cousino Macul is the best. Provided the detailed history of the Chilean wine and how to evaluate wine. Concha Y Toro is a bit more commercialized. I wish the tour goes to another smaller vineyard. We enjoyed the recommended restaurant for lunch.

    Good tour of two wineries especially Concha y Toro. While this was a private tour our guide was very nice but to the level of other guides we have had in the past or what you would expect. Would recommend you consider it.

    Fantastic tour, had a great day. The guide Claudio spoke English and was very professional and tried really hard to make sure the trip was great!

    The 2 wineries were really good - but a little more wine would be good and perhaps one more winery instead of such a long lunch
