Our Chile wine tour in 2019 was the second tour to the land of parched dunes, fertile valleys, ancient volcanoes and forests was spectacular. It began on our first evening with an excellent food and wine matching dinner, presented by Javier of Undurraga Wines. After which, we never stopped enjoying the wonderful wines and food. We visited wineries in Maipo, Casablanca, Colchagua and Curico and we ate delicious food at several wineries. We toured the amazing city of Valparaiso, enjoyed the spectacular mountain scenery of the Andes and Coastal Ranges and experienced a rodeo (yes, a rodeo!).
There was a 3-day extension to the North, where we stayed in the coastal town of La Serena. We experienced the stark scenery of Limari and Elqui Valleys and sampled their elegant wines. We learnt how Pisco is made, wondered at the stars at an observatory and experienced the petroglyphs of the Enchanted Valley. And yes, it was a truly enchanted trip.
