Approximately 9 Hours
Depart the ship and head for the Casablanca Valley, Chile's youngest viticulture area. It boasts the perfect trifecta -- a warm climate, wonderful soil and hardy vines. Your first stop here will be at a local winery for a tour and wine tasting.
Driving further along the valley brings you to one of the best wineries in Chile -- Estancia El Cuadro. Here you will find Casablanca Valley's most complete and entertaining eno-tourism experience, offering a comprehensive introduction to the history and traditions of Chilean wine culture.
Sip on a welcome drink and listen to a live folkloric music performance. You will continue tasting wines as you enjoy a leisurely buffet lunch.
After lunch, head to Santiago for a panoramic drive through Chile's capital to the Las Condes district. This is where you'll discover the beautiful handicraft village of El Pueblo de Los Dominicos. Browse in the handicraft shops to see artisans working with copper, wool, ceramics, lapis lazuli and other indigenous materials.
Transfer to a downtown hotel or to Santiago Airport in time for your flight.
