Luxury Wine Tours of Chile
Luxury travel specialist Cellar Tours has started offering clients the experience of a lifetime in South America’s premier wine tours destination – Chile. Established customers of this family run, high-end outfit will already know what to expect – custom designed, VIP wine tours of the finest vineyards, beautiful cities, charming seaside and historic villages, and gourmet food destinations.
According to Genevieve McCarthy, co-founder of Cellar Tours, “Our group has spent the last year building relationships with only the very best wineries, hotels, and restaurants in Chile to bring you something quite special. On our private tours of Chile, you will have your own driver, select charming accommodations (from luxury boutique wine hotels to historic properties), private VIP tours conducted in English and special icon wine tastings at premium estates and lesser known wine discoveries, and a range of unforgettable meals – from rustic vineyard barbecues to high end romantic venues.”
As a destination for food and wine lovers, and for those who simply love luxury and unique travel, Chile is certainly able to satisfy all of the above. Visitors can expect to encounter stunning, dramatic scenery, from lush vineyards tucked under graceful mountains, to verdant alpine scenery with turquoise lakes. Not to mention some of South America’s most exciting and vibrant cities, of which Santiago and Valparaiso are just two highlights. Above all, Cellar Tours strives only to work with a select number of prestigious wineries that also offer memorable and warm hospitality, so you may sample only the best Chile has to offer.
Be prepared to be astounded and amazed when you arrive in Chile’s capital Santiago, for this is a wine country like no other. Chile is completely unique geographically with the Pacific Ocean to the west, the regal Andes Mountains to the east and 2500 miles of diverse micro climates and movie-set scenery stretching north to south. First things first though, after arriving at your hotel, your group might be whisked away for a sommelier led tutored tasting of some top Chilean wines, before dinner at one of Santiago’s exclusive restaurants like Astrid y Gaston. Then relax at your hotel before enjoying a well-earned night’s sleep!
Refreshed and re-energised, Cellar Tours would then transport you privately to some of Chile’s premier wine regions, a great first stop would be the Maipo and Casablanca valleys. These regions are today producing some of the country’s best red and white wines, our partner wineries will treat you to a VIP tour, lunch and of course an extensive tasting of their fantastic bottles. Perhaps the following day the group would like to explore some of Chile’s other wonderful cities? Well, how about a walking tour of Valparaiso? This could include incredible views of the bay and historic areas of Valparaiso (colourful, historic homes and hotels), accompanied by a local guide.
After exploring Valparaiso’s famous hills, you will no doubt be eager to sit down, relax and sample more of Chile’s superb wines. Well you are in luck as Cellar Tours will take you to the San Antonio and Colchagua Valleys, where legendary wine estates Casa Marin and Viu Manent will welcome you with convivial private cooking classes, vineyard walking tours and an extensive tasting of their wines. Culture lovers are not forgotten, as your tour would include a visit to the darling Santa Cruz museum. Enjoy the richness of Chile & its culture, both past and present. Exhibits include an exploration of Pre-Hispanic Chile, the conquest and the colonial period and important art exhibits. Then you could finish your tour with a final farewell winery visit and even a horse-riding lesson, before journeying back to Santiago for one last taste of the capital’s famed night-life.
The main hub, Santiago is easily accessible with most major airlines flying to Chile several times a week. Cellar Tours prides itself on providing only the best VIP treatment to customers, be it luxury boutique hotels, unique insights into wineries or gourmet cuisine from the region’s finest restaurants.
