Casablanca Valley boutique Winery Tour

Santiago, Chile

Oplevelse med værten Mariana & Dominic

  1. 6,5 timer
  2. Sprog: Engelsk, Spansk og Fransk

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 almost 10 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 (I'm certifed WSET 2 and studying for level 3) 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.

This was an absolutely wonderful tour! Dominic is a great host and taught us a lot about the local wineries, history of Casablanca, and made everyone feel comfortable. The wine was amazing and it was a really fun day overall.

Dominic hit this tour out of the park. Super friendly, informative, and funny, he guided us first through Valparaiso, sharing the life and history of this magical, special place. Then, it was on to the Casablancas Valley, where we toured two wineries and had lunch. What made all of this different from other tours is Dominic’s obvious love of the history of the region, for the knowledge and care he took in selecting the vintners he took us to, and for his unfailing charm and wit. We have become friends. We will visit him again, as friends do.

Dominic was a great host. You could feel the passion he has for wine as well as his love for the region. The overall experience was much better than we expected. In spite of covid Dominic planned exceptional tour for us. Not to forget, the wine and the food was also amazing.

Dom is an amazing guide and host! Very knowledgeable about the region and passionate about the wines and wineries. Would highly recommend to anyone interested in exploring the smaller boutique winemaking scene - we learned a ton and had a great time meeting and learning from the wonderful folks at the wineries we visited. Such a fun day!!

We had a great time drinking wine in Casablanca with Dom. We explored a big range of wines (in terms of taste and style) and there were definitely a few that we absolutely loved. Cool experience. We’ll connect with Dom when we return.
