The South America tour starts with Buenos Aires and then Mendoza. The vast mountain range of the Andes forms the border with Chile. We get in close contact with these incredible mountains when we take our bus across to Chile.
Once on the other side, the landscape changes. Chile is a very long and narrow country. The vineyards are never far from either the Pacific Ocean or the Andes. We start with a few days in the slightly cooler seaside regions of Casablanca and San Antonio before we drive inland to Colchagua, where they make some of the country’s best red wines, from Chile’s national grape carmenère and from many others.
We visit some of the sub-districts that have crystallized and made themselves a name in recent years, such as Apalta and Lolol. The quality of the wines is impressively high.
We have time for Valparaiso, a must when you are in Chile, and of course, a quick look-around in Santiago de Chile.
