Chile has a rich wine history dating back much further than its recent popularity would suggest. The Spanish conquistadors and missionaries who arrived in the 16th century promptly planted old world vines in what was obviously very grape-friendly terroir. It wasn’t until much later, however, that winemakers got serious with their production techniques, and wine drinkers of the world have definitely taken notice. Since then, the market has exploded. Vineyards throughout Chile have opened their doors to visitors, and the number of companies offering winery tours can be quite intimidating. Fortunately, we’ve done the work for you, and any of the tours in this guide are sure to provide you with an enjoyable, uniquely Chilean experience.
