“Very touristy experience, but the grounds are beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2012

The winery and the grounds are beautiful. The overall "tour" is a pretty touristy but the tasting was good. It was not my favorite winery.

“Incredible Vineyard to introduce your friends to Chilean Wine and Welcome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2011

I have been going to this venue over the last two years and always always take any friends that visit from the UK here.
First of all the service, care and attention paid to guests is amazing.
Second the place itself in the Casablanca Valley is stunning .
The tour which includes wine tasting, a guide to vine growing and wines, the museum tour, a rodeo and traditional dance show and finally a three course meal( fantastic) with as much wine as you would like is excellent value for money and unforgettable
And finally the wine produced can only be bought there and their white's are fab.
A great great introduction to Chilean wine and hospitality in one place..

“Wonderful Winery -- and lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2011

We stopped here and had a great lunch. It was Sunday so maybe they do not have this every day. The lunch was so awesome and comes with lots of wine so we chose not to actually do a tour and tasting! Lovely spot nearby the highway between Santiago and Valpo/Vina. Loved this spot!

“Vina Del Mar and El Cuadro Winery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2010

Went on a cruise out of Valparaiso but stayed in Vina Del Mar from March 10, 2010 until March 14, 2010 at the Sheraton. Great hotel. Minimal damage from the huge earthquake - pretty much aesthetic. We were in the Santiago airport during the 7.2 earthquake. Roads were very easily traveled from Santiago to Valparaiso and Vina Del Mar. We had to take a taxi instead of the car rental we had reserved as after the earthquake all the rental agents left their stations. Turned out to cost us less to take the taxi and rent a car in Vina Del Mar for 2 days than to pay for a car rental for 3 days. Had a great time. People were very friendly. Town is clean, food is good. We drove to the El Cuadro Ranch/Winery in Casablanca region between Vina and Santiago (about an hour drive). An absolutely beautiful winery on 7,000 acres. We took their tour and lunch package for $80 U.S. At first thought it was alot until we experienced it. Started with wine tasting and appetizers, then a rodeo exhibition, followed by a horse driven carriage tour of the winery. Next was an explanation of about 36 different grape vines that are experimental. They are trying to see which ones will grow best in their climate and which need more "work" and which will not grow at all. Then a tour of their museum, followed by a fabulous lunch with unlimited wine. The food was incredible (we chose the Chilean 3 course lunch). The wine was outstanding!! The people working in this winery are exceptional. We bought 3 cases of wine and are currently working with American Airlines to deliver our wine that they lost a case, and made us leave 2 cases at their check in counter (long story). We would recommend both the cities and the winery/ranch.
