Live the Chilean Spirit: Wines & Horses (Intransit)
Information not currently available.
Approximately 6 Hours
Experience the very best of the Chilean spirit, starting with a scenic drive into the heart of Casablanca Valley. There have been vineyards in Casablanca Valley since 1875, but only since the 1980s has the true potential of the valley been understood. The soils and the conditions are in many ways similar to the Napa and Sonoma Valleys in California. The valley is oriented so that ocean breezes cool the grapes on the vine and result in intensely fruity wines when properly vinified.
Visit a local winery to learn about the wine-making process and taste some of the wines produced here.
Next, an authentic huaso (cowboy) will greet you at Puro Caballo horse stables. Learn about the Chilean horse, traditions of Chilean equestria and the abilities of the beautiful creatures you'll meet here.
Enjoy a glass of wine or a Pisco Sour (or both!) during an exciting exhibition of the man-horse 'duet' in the National Sport -- the Chilean rodeo.
A delicious lunch awaits you at the restaurant located on site. Return to the ship after your meal.
