    Santa Rita Vinery

    April 2, 2017 in Chile ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    Once in Chile I wanted to experience a little bit of the Chilean wine culture. As I have a low travel budget and love to explore things on my own I dicided to not book a wine tour with an agency. In the center of Santiago there are several info points where you can book tours directly to different vineyards (wine tasting ~32000 CLP or biking tour with wine tasting ~42000 CLP). I decided to go to the vineyard Santa Rita which is in the south of Santiago. On the website ( you can find their tour offers, how to get there etc.). They offer tours in English, Spanish and Portuguese two times per day. I took the bus from the bus stop (San Francisco street crossing Tarapaca street) to 'Alameda - Alto Jahuel' (1.5 hours, 1100 CLP). Just ask the bus driver to let you know when you pass Santa Rita. From the entrance it is a 15 minutes walk to the winery. The weather was beautiful and I just walked a bit through the lovely wine region before I visited the vineyard and the Museo Andino. There is also a little park, restaurant and coffee shop to hang around the rest of your day. In the evening after I bought a bottle of wine I took the bus back to Santiago (same place where the bus dropped me off). All in all a wonderful day!Read more
