Visiting wineries and national parks during end of august?

We are traveling to chile end of august and will be staying close to Santiago. I was wondering which wineries are worth visiting during the winter season?

Also, are there any national parks with hiking and biking trails that are easy to get to from Santiago?

How does that area look in general during winter? Most pictures on the web are mostly around summer. Is there a lot of green all year round?

Wineries are open and worth visiting at any time of year. There are hiking and biking trials in Santiago itself as well as parks close by.

Central Chile is at it greenest in September.

The closest national parks to Santiago are La Campana and Palmeras de Cocolán. There is a smaller park at Río Clarillo about 45 kms south of Santiago.

There are lots of trails in the Cajón del Maipo at the south of the metropolitan area and reachable by public transport.

Many thanks for the info. I will look into it. Based on the information you provided, I think we should have plenty to do to keep ourselves busy.
