Visit to concha y toro winery
The excursion consists of a visit to one of the largest and finest wineries in Chile,
the Concha y Toro Winery. It was founded in 1883 by the Marquis of Casa Concha, who
appointed French enologist M. de Labouchere to bring from France the best and most
selected wine stock to the Maipo River Valley. During the visit of the cellars,
wine-testing will be offered.
The visit begins in the square Plaza Don Melchor, where you will be welcomed by a
bilingual guide who will lead you to a panoramic view of the Pirque vineyard.
Accompanied by a glass of Casillero del Diablo white wine, you can immerse yourself
in the aromas and flavors of this centennial setting.
Glass in hand, visitors can stroll through the mature parkland and gardens that go
well back in time and also take in the old casona, the former residence of the Concha
y Toro family. Here, over a hundred years ago, what is now the biggest wine making
company in Chile was born.
At the vineyards you will not only get to know how the vines develop, but also the
care and technical handling that is necessary to secure first-rate yields. On entering
the cellars you will be offered an excellent Casillero del Diablo Merlot, while you are
shown how Concha y Toro´s wines are produced. In the surroundings of the original
facilities, face to face with the Casillero del Diablo, you´ll be given the chance to
taste the wine that made Chilean wine famous - Casillero del Diablo Cabernet
Visits end at the Wine Shop where a number of wines and souvenirs are available.
