Owner description: Visiting Santa Rita winery is a fascinating journey through Chile’s cultural heritage and Chilean wine tradition, only 45 minutes from Santiago. At the foot of the mountains in Alto Jahuel, Buin, the winery is surrounded by a unique environment where wine-making tradition, Chilean history, culture and gastronomy are blended together. To complement the different tours, the Andean museum exhibits over 2,000 pieces from Pre-Columbian and Post-Conquest Chile. In addition, our wine shop offers you the best selection of wines from our cellars, beautiful local crafts and wine-tastings. For lunch or just a snack The Doña Paula restaurant and La Panaderia Café offer you the best of Chilean gastronomy. Visitors can enjoy a unique and diverse experience all in one place, just steps away from Santiago.

Me and my husband decided to have a wine tour ar another winery, but as we got there we found out that the staff was on strike and a very nice man told us we should go further to Santa Rita. And so we did. The tour is available in Spanish, Portuguese and English at different times, we had Paulina for a guide, she was very nice and friendly.I would have liked to taste more than two wines (it was one Sauvignon blanc and one Cabernet sauvignon), but all in all I liked the tour and it wasn't too expensive. The scenery is magnificent! And we also enjoyed visiting the museum.

Santa Rita is a beautiful winery, lucky enough to have the gorgeous Andean mountains as a backdrop. The tour was informative, and went for the perfect amount of time (didnt drag on, nor was it too short). We had Ignacio as our tour guide and he was the best. (highly reccomend requesting him as a guide). Knowledgable, professional but also lots of fun. He made our tour so very enjoyable. Thanks again, Sarah and Jose - The Australians!

Had a nice morning tour of this lovely winery just to the south of Santiago and right on the Andean foothills. This is a big, high-production winery, second in volume only to Concha y Toro. But the feel is as bucolic as any little boutique winery. Plus the winery has a great back story in that 120 Chilean soldiers hid out in the basement of the old farm house here during the Chilean war for independence. (Also the source of the name for a popular series of Santa Rita wines called the 120s, which are widely available in Chile.) The winery has a little diorama downstairs that explains a bit about the history. Also included in the price of admission is a very nice museum of Andean art. I had to rush through the latter because my tour bus was leaving, but it is well worth an hour or more of your time. We tasted three wines, from an inexpensive chardonnay to a mid-level cabernet, which gave a good sense of the range of the winery products. Well worth a tour!

Very beautiful winery, set in the Maipu valley. Worth the short hour long tour. You learn about how the wines are made and what separates a premium wine from a common wine. The tasting was well too but it could have been a tad more descriptive about the history of wine, about the legs the wine leaves in the glass (they mention/reference it but expect you to already know about it), and the importance of a cork (like why it is handed to you when you get a bottle).

Only setback of the whole place is that they will not ship a case of wine for you as most wineries in SouthAmerica will do. Normally you can have a case or two shipped internationally for a very small fee as the wineries already distribute their product.

Overall a great experience.
