A great little tour to fill a few hours and the wines really are lovely. We caught the train out then a 10-15 min cab ride. The tour is only 40 mins or so which we loved. Nice restaurant to finish after
I went for a tour and it was in English but it wasn’t very long and only had 3 tastings. I did pay for the extra tastings and cheese pairings which offered more varieties and the higher rated wines. Had lunch at the restaurant, the...More

The trip from Valparaiso to Santiago can be done on a number of bus services that operate out of the bus station across from the Congress building (a few blocks from the port). Buses in Chile are very nice, and very cheap. Roundtrip is $15 so one way is $8 or so. These are coaches with leather seats, and some have drinks services. There are many competing bus companies, but TurBus is quite reliable. The trip takes an hour and a half, at high degrees of safety (Chilean buses have a speed...More
Vineyard near Santiago - accessible, teenagers, food, charm (1 Replies)
Hi there Santiago residents and travelers... We will spend 5 days in Santiago and hope to visit a vineyard not too far from the city with our "kids" (ages 12 and 15). We are prioritizing ease of access (we won't have a car), the possibility to have lunch or cheeses while visiting (or nearby), a bit of charm, minimally interesting to my kids and hopefully not outrageously expensive. Initially I thought that I would want to avoid Concha Y Toro for being too large and perhaps impersonal, but a...More

Wineries near Concha y Toro (2 Replies)
I'm planning to do a visit at Concha y Toro winery. Thing is that I want to also go to visit another winery on the same day. I'm considering Cousiño Macul but it is not so close to Concha y Toro. Is someone aware of any winery closer to Concha y Toro(maybe somewhere that is on a walking distance)?

Thanks for the advice. I didn't know the Santa Rita winery, it seems more interesting than Concha y Toro, so I will probably go there instead.
