Det skal I lave

We'll leave Santiago around 9am and take a pretty 1,5 hour drive to the Casablanca Valley, previously famous mainly for its' whites but now producing increasingly amazing reds as well. We'll avoid the large producers and concentrate solely on boutique wineries with - it goes without saying - fantastic wines. Depending on availability that day, we'll start off at the very small and wonderful Attilio & Mochi winery where the Brazilian couple of Angela and Marcos, who left their sucessful wine importing business in Brazil to pursue their dream, are producing some wonderfully fresh, mineral, original and award winning wines. Angela is truly one of the most charming winemakers I know, making the visit a memorable experience for everyone I've taken there. After an hour and a half or two, we will move on either to the beautiful Villard winery, established by a franco-chilean family who make some of the best cold climate syrahs in the country in an amazing setting, or to the wonderful RE boutique winery (which recently won 34th place in the 50 Best Wineries in the world) that make some of the most delicious and original blends in the country. We'll be usually be back in Santiago by 4pm. A lunch stop is not included in the schedule, but we can be done (anything from an empanada to a sit-down lunch) if planned in advance and agreed-on with all the participants on the trip.
Other things to note
My aim is for the trip to be laid back, entertaining and informative, hopefully as if travelling with a friend. I speak native-level English, French and Spanish.

I'm a Irish/Brit who's lived outside Ireland since I was tiny, in London, Southern France, Madrid, Buenos Aires and (already!) 8 years in Chile. We started offering tours to the surroundings of Santiago (mainly up into the Andes, the coast and wineries in various of the nearby valleys) as a natural evolution to our Airbnb apartments. The tours are gradually becoming my main activity and I love taking our guests off the beaten track (away from the masses whenever possible) and I especially enjoy the winery tours . Wine has always been true passion of mine and so I'm thrilled to now be able to share this excitement with my guests introducing them to a few of the wonderful human-scale producers in Casablanca where one can have an intimate experience - often with the winemakers themselves.

If you are looking for a more private and intimate tour to Casablanca I highly booking with Dom. He is very friendly, personable and passionate about what he is doing and enjoys hosting and ensuring that all his guest have an amazing experience. The wineries were beautiful and you won’t be disappointed with the tastings. A tremendous amount of details (and a lot of wine) are consumed throughout the day. I highly recommend stopping for lunch at Macerado en Vinamar before heading back to the city. The 4 course lunch dishes were delicious and they catered to my vegan diet, also additional wine tasting was available, all at an additional cost outside of the tour but well worth it!

Although we had done other wine tours in this region we really were looking for something unique. Dominic arranged to meet us at our Airbnb and right away it felt like we were friends. As he whisked us away to Casablanca he shared his knowledge of the area and the sites we passed. The best thing about this wine tour is you are connecting with the wineries. No huge crowds led by the hand in a mass winery. On this tour you meet the local owners of these wineries, and actually walk among the vines. Learn what is needed and the obstacles that they encounter with growing grapes. Then sit and enjoy a tasting. Both wineries were welcoming and it felt special. The option to buy wine is also there and very economical. Dominic then asked if we wanted to grab some lunch and recommended a place he though would best be suited for us after getting to know us. An authentic restaurant where we indulged in a wonder/inexpensive meal that was filling. A drive back into the city and too soon we were saying goodbye to our new friend Dominic. Definitely can recommend this tour.

Dom was a great host - I was the only guest on the excursion and I appreciated his adaptability and willingness to make the tour fit for me. The wineries we visited were lovely.

My boyfriend and I had a great experience with Dom - he was very personable from the moment we met him and his passion for good food, drink and travel really shone through, meaning conversation flowed easily! We visited Villard and Bodega RE, which provided two contrasting style of experiences in their set up and wines. It was also clear that Dom had a personal rapport with both wineries and felt like he was taking us to places that he would take a friend to. Dom was also very flexible with the timings and when there was a change in time for one of our tours, he took us on a scenic drive through some country back roads which we enjoyed! Would definitely recommend this tour to any oenophiles out there :)

Nous avons passé une excellente journée avec Dominic. Les divers trajets ont été l'occasion d'échanger aussi bien au sujet du vin que sur l'histoire, la culture et la société chilienne. Les deux caves (des domaines de taille modeste) qu'il a sélectionnées nous ont fait découvrir de très bons vins (rouges et blancs). Les dégustations nous ont permis d'en apprendre beaucoup auprès de vignerons, très disponibles et par ailleurs des plus sympathiques. Le repas de midi (avec accord de vins) était tout simplement parfait ; une cuisine fine et inventive dans un cadre splendide. Le tour que nous attendions pour finir en beauté notre séjour chilien !
