Full description
Come join us for an enjoyable day and visit the cozy boutique wine vineyards of Haras de Pirque and El Principal in an area known as Alto Maipo, just south of Santiago. Relax and enjoy their award-winning wines in the shadow of the majestic Andes Mountains! First stop, Viña Haras de Pirque. The visit starts on the main terrace of the wine cellar where the beautiful Maipo Valley and Andes Mountains meet. Moving inside the horse-shoe shaped cellar, you will learn about their winemaking and barrel-aging process, followed by a tasting of three wines – Albaclara Sauvignon Blanc, Reserva de Propiedad and Hussonet Cabernet Sauvignon Gran Reserva – in their memorable “fountain” tasting room. Then, we visit Viña El Principal, also located at the foot of the Andes. This boutique vineyard also focuses on producing high-quality wines in limited quantities. The host will welcome you at the El Principal Visitor Center where you will first tour the vineyard, which is the origin of its outstanding wines. Then, you will visit the winery to learn about their processes of winemaking, bottling and storing of the wine. The visit culminates with a tasting of two of its prestigious wines: Memorias and Calicanto. A perfect day in the Alto Maipo Valley at two boutique vineyards far away from the crowded, large production wineries!
