Following the instructions from LJV4848 (March 23 review) we took the public transit option to the Vina. Left Provendencia at 09:30 ($610 per person at this time of day and you can use cash to buy the tickets unlike city busses that require the card) and arrived at the winery at 10:30. $1,000 each for the Autopisto bus (payable to the driver). Next tour in English ($8,000 pesos - credit cards accepted) was not until 12:00 so we walked 100 meters down the highway toward Talagante and had a coffee in a small cafe just past the first (only) major intersection. Might be best to enquire about tour times to make better use of your time. We did not have reservations but that was not a problem. Turned out we were the only two English speaking guests so we enjoyed guide Daniel to ourselves - a university graduate in viniculture. Good tour, not too much stopping to look at stainless steal vats - have seen enough of them to last a lifetime already. We were treated to grape types in the vineyard, the pinot grape harvest arriving, grape, vine and refuse separation, a quick explanation of the fermentation process and a tour of the underground oak storage vault plus a tasting of 4 wines (the wine glasses are a take-away). Winery has a nice sales room and good clean washrooms. This was the best wine tour we had in Chile and we did it on our own. Thanks LJV4848. Same ride on the way back and also caught the local bus (a few pesos less). They come by so fast its hard to see if its an Autopisto or not before you can flag them to stop. At the end of the ride all passengers exited the bus just before it entered the station and walked across the side road to the terminal. A bonus is seeing the Estacion Central building, it is gorgeous and looks to have received some recent restoration work.
