Receive a morning pickup by an air-conditioned minivan from your Santiago hotel. You’ll proceed through the scenic outskirts of the Chilean capital into the vineyards of the Casablanca Valley.
Arrive at Emiliana Winery, a vineyard that’s situated in what has come to be known as one of the country’s top wine-producing areas for both red and white wines. Take a tour of the wine-making operation and learn about its close connection with the local plants and livestock. You’ll also get to sample four of the winery’s latest vintages, accompanied by local cheese or chocolate.
Leave the vineyard behind and proceed to Valparaiso, a hilly port town that many have favorably compared to a Chilean version of San Francisco. Starting at the port you’ll check out Sotomayor Square before proceeding by trolley-bus to Anibal Porto Square. You’ll also take a ride in the Queen Victoria Elevator and enjoy the “bohemian” vibe of the city’s Cerro Alegre and Concepción areas.
Take a break for lunch in a traditional restaurant before exploring the town’s lighthouse. Then receive a ride back to Santiago, where you’ll be dropped off at your hotel.
