We booked a trip on line from home before even venturing to Chile. But Mike was there to pick us up exactly as planned months before and took us on a really interesting day out. He knows his wine and he likes to share his knowledge, but he is definitely NOT a wine bore. The whole day was just such good fun.

This was a great experience overall and would highly recommend for anyone in Santiago. I was looking for a different kind of wine tasting experience and this definitely fit the bill. Great wine tasting by the beach with plenty wine to go around. The penguins were cool to see along with all the other nature in the area. Obviously the alpacas were a great hit. We ended the day at a small winery- delicious wines and food! Not only was the experience great, but so was our guide! He was very knowledgeable and easy to be around. My husband was also ill and he was very accommodating in trying to make it work to see what we could do. 100% would recommend. Just be sure to plan a nap for the end of the day because you'll be exhausted.

It was a great wine tour. Our guide Mike has taken us to 4 wineries and has given us a lot of information about wine making in Chile. We’ve visited both boutique wineyards, middle scale wineyards and also the big ones. One day is not enough to visit many wineyards. So you may go seperately to the big ones such as Concho y Torro.

Honestly, I went into the adventure not knowing much about formal wine production or tasting but I can tell you, Mick is the best! His welcoming California-style attitude and enthusiasm for wine makes for an outstanding day in the picturesque Maipo Valley. We went out on a Monday when most wineries were closed but Nick used his connects to open up 5 outstanding locations for us. Here are my thoughts on 3 of them. Our first stop was at the Viña Antiyal where we learned all about Biodynamic Garagiste wine production. Don’t know much about Biodynamic Garagiste? You will when you leave! The rooftop patio we did our tasting on overlooked acres of grapevines and the Andes mountains in the background. It was then off to the Perez Cruz vineyard for a look at a larger production boutique winery. Their main facility was designed by renowned architect José Cruz Ovalle and it’s enchanting! The wine isn’t so bad either ;) Each tasting is paired with a local cheese, nut or chocolate. And make sure they pour you a glass of their rosé. Our day wrapped up with a quick trip to the William Fèvre winery. Here is where got to try Victor Pino Torche‘a award winning Espino Reserva Especial Chardonnay. I wanted to buy a case and bring it back with me! Needless to say, when we were dropped back off at our hotel we were happy, filled with knowledge and more than a little tipsy. Enjoy the trip!

Mick was the sommelier for our tour, which included the two of us and another couple. We visited four wineries in the full-day tour: Antiyal (small, biodynamic), Perez Cruz (excellent tour and tasting experience), Concho y Toro (mainly for a tasty and simple lunch) and Haras de Pirque (spectacular facility and views). Wines tasted were reds except for a rose and a Sauvignon Blanc. Mick is very knowledgeable about wine in general and Chilean wine in particular. He was a congenial and well-organized guide. At a couple of the places he enlisted the help of winery staff to conduct tours, and they did a good job as well. We learned a lot while thoroughly enjoying the day.
