Great guide and tasting experience.
Nov 2019
The winery is a newcomer in a region that itself has not been the wine-making business for very long. The Casablanca valley west of Santiago was long deemed too close to the coastline and too cool for viticulture. Winemakeing began only in the mid-1980s. Vina Casa del Bosque was founded in 1993. By contrast, Santa Rita winery in Maipo Valley has been making wine since about 1880.

We had a tour of the winery grounds, the wine-making rooms, the cellars/storage areas, ending with a wine-tasting. As was the case with the entire valley, the proximity to the ocean meant cool winds and morning fog which in turn made for good conditions for the cultivation of white varietals such as chardonnay and sauvignon blanc. Our guide was extremely friendly and approachable, ready to answer our questions. He clearly was very knowledgable of the winery's history and production process. The wine tasting was both an educational and enjoyable process. We did not get to dine at the restaurant.

Great tasting with lunch - be sure to make a reservation at Tanino
Mar 2019
We learned a lot about grapes at this vineyard. For instance, they talked about the 242 grape like it was something everyone knew. When I asked my other wine tasting companions if they had ever heard of it, they all said no. The 242 is actually a Sauvignon Blanc grape clone that came from France.
The 242 is characterized by grapes on small clusters and an early ripening period. It produces wines with a vibrant stone fruit character, marked mineral notes and lashings of spice and citrus fruits. Also, it conveys the mineral/salty character which comes from the 110-million-year-old decomposed granite soils.

Beautiful winery!

We chose this as our one winery to visit while here in Chile. It did not disappoint! The guide (Connie) did a fantastic job of explaining the unique processes used at this smaller, family owned vineyard.

The wine tasting was equally impressive, and our lunch at Tanino (see my review) capped off a picture -perfect day!

If you can only fit in one winery, this would be a great choice!

Beautiful setting, wonderful wines
Dec 2019
Visiting this family owned winery reminded me of the early days in Napa. The grounds, winery and attached restaurant are striking. Our group had a tour and tasting of 3 wines which were very good. The award winning restaurant serves paired meals and I wish we had been able to at least sample some of the food as it looked wonderful and the outside seating very relaxing. Could easily spend an afternoon here.

Fantastic winery with amazing lunch!
Jan 2020
Casas del Bosque winery outside of Valparaisa, Chile, located about 1 hour west of Santiago, is a beautiful setting with delicious wine. We started with a 3 course lunch in the Tanino restaurant, served with 2 of the grand reserva wines. The food was absolutely delicious, and the service was very attentive as well. After this incredible lunch, we took a tour of the winery and did a tasting of another 6 wines. I highly recommend this scenic winery, and be sure to eat in their restaurant while there. Top notch!

Big problem honoring Reservations. Unfortunately, bad service.
Jan 2020
Casas del Bosque is really beautiful. Unfortunately, we had a bad experience because they do not honor reservations and were extremely rude to us about it. We called 1 week in advance to reserve a tour and lunch.

1. We had reserved the English tour at 12pm.They told us they only had space at 3pm. After a bit of discussion they "allowed" us space in the 12pm.

2. We had reserved lunch at 2pm, the hostess was extremely rude and said she didn't have our reservation and that they were full because there were lots of tourist buses arriving. Curiously, the people behind us had the same problem, their reservation wasn't there either. I saw in the comments book that this was happening to other people too.
Clearly big problem with Reservations!

Main message for Casas del Bosque: Please honor the reservations, that's why we make them days in advance. Since you clearly have issues organizing the reservations, at least be gracious and nice about it, not rude.

Amazing place, great service!
Jan 2020 • Couples
On our way to Valparaiso, we decided to stop on a vineyard on casa blanca. The temperature was amazing, at least 10 degrees fresher than Santiago. The place is beautiful, with a great restaurant and a launch area to taste the wines. The food on the restaurant was amazing and the service even better. Marcos, our server, very passionate was explaining everything in detail, recommending wines and also places in Valparaiso, that we actually tried and were amazing. The whole experience was really good, after lunch we did a wine tasting tour and the we chilled at the launch area, it was a whole wonderful experience. Thank you Marcos for the great service and also the host girl on the restaurant who manage to accommodate a table for us even though it was very busy and we didn’t have a reservation.

Faultless. Excellent meal and wine. Lovely setting
Jan 2020 • Couples
A must visit if you like good food and wine. About an hour drive from Santiago and en route for Valparaiso. Lovely setting far enough from the motorway to be separated from the journey but only 5 minutes diversion.
Food excellent - lovely flavours and presentation. Tasting menu with matched wine available.
Tried sparkling, white, rose and red before during and after meal and all excellent. In total all this for under £100 for 2.
Just do it.
