Casablanca Winery, Panoramic Valparaiso & Viña del Mar (App. 4 hours) For In-Transit Guests

First, your bus will take you into the heart of Casablanca Valley. Since 1875 there have been vineyards in Casablanca Valley but only since the 1980’s was the true potential of the valley discovered. It was determined only recently that the soils and the conditions were in many ways similar to the Napa and Sonoma Valleys in California. The valley is oriented in such a way that daily ocean breezes cool the grapes on the vine and result in intensely fruity wines when properly vinified.

Here you will visit one of the wineries located in this valley. You will be shown the wine-process and will taste some of the wines they produce. Depending on availability, either Casas del Bosque, William Cole Vineyards, or Viña Mar will be visited.

After visiting one of these wineries, return to Valparaiso, and take a panoramic tour of Viña del Mar, the resort city and Valparaiso.
