Wineries near Santiago Chile

by Boris at Chilean-Wine.com on June 28, 2010

What are the closest vineyards to Santiago Chile?  I’ve gotten this question a couple of times, so here is the answer.

If you have an extra day or even a few extra hours while you are in Santiago you owe it to yourself to visit one or two of the wineries near Santiago.  The following wineries are all within an hour of Santiago and have beautiful grounds and tour programs for the interested visitor.

They are all located in Chile’s Maipo Valley.  The Maipo is Chile’s oldest wine producing region and it also happens to be part of the metropolitan basin of Santiago, Chile.

Wine making is such an important part of Chile and its economy, why not learn a little bit more about it.  It will be fun.  Really.

Viña Santa Rita
Located in Alto Jahuel in Buin. Approximately 45 kilometers from the center of Santiago. Santa Rita boasts beautiful grounds, a fully operational wine making /bottling facility on site.  A lunch tour is available with onsite dining at the excellent onsite restaurant, Doña Paula.   You can view a more detailed description here.  For directions and reservations click here.

Viña Concha y Toro
Just about everybody has heard of Concha y Toro. Chile’s largest wine producer has vineyards throughout Chile, but the original vineyards and owner’s quarters in Pirque are a must see.  Click here for more information about visiting Concha y Toro.

Dear Admin.,
I can’t remember which of these vineyards it was that had a very special late harvest red wine (small bottle) when I visited back in 2006. It was a very small, quaint vineyard back then. Maybe Undurraga? If someone might have an idea of which of these vineyards it might be and if they still carry it I would be most grateful.
Thanks,
Anthony
