Casablanca Valley Winery with Airport Transfer
Leave the ship in Valparaíso and head into the Casablanca Valley. This is the youngest viticulture area in Chile and it boasts the perfect trilogy—climate, soil and vines. Your first stop will be at one of the wineries located in this valley for a tour and wine tasting. Then, drive through the valley, with a stop at one of the best wineries in Chile—Estancia El Cuadro. Here you will find the Casablanca Valley’s most complete and entertaining eno-tourism experience, offering a unique glimpse into the history and traditions of Chilean wine culture. During welcome drinks, enjoy a folkloric music performance. You will continue tasting wines during a leisurely lunch. Then, your excursion continues to Santiago for a scenic drive through Chile’s capital to the beautiful handicraft village of El Pueblo de Los Dominicos in the Las Condes district. Visit the handicraft shops to see artisans working in copper, wool, ceramics, lapis lazuli and other indigenous materials. Enjoy a stroll through the market before transferring to a downtown hotel or to Santiago Airport in time for your flight.
During inclement weather, lunch will be served at the Club House at Estancia El Cuadro. This option is available only to guests with flights departing after 9pm. If you have already purchased an airport transfer with your cruise booking, you will be refunded onboard, as this excursion already includes a transfer.
