This is a beautiful part of the Chile. You would be able to visit many wineries, museum and restaurants. It is very safe and beautiful. The people are very friendly. If you go to Chile and like wine I highly recommend that you take 3...More
This valley is very rich in agriculture and wineries. The little town of Santa Cruz has a lively plaza and shops, and places to drink cafe con leche. The infrastructure (roads, elec, water) are all fine.
My husband and I made a five-day detour during our Chile trip to sample wines, hike and horseback ride in Colchagua Valley. We stayed at Lapostolle, which is not only an incredible winery, but also has a small boutique Relais & Chateau hotel on its...More
We have now visited the Casablanca Valley, Aconcagua, Maipo, Maule, Curicó and Colchagua Valley. All our wine tasting was self- planned and organised.
You certainly need your own transport, and plan ahead with a designating a driver. Chile has, fortunately, a zero tolerance for drink-...More

John, we went last March. We had absolutely perfect weather the entire time we were there. We stayed at Lapostolle, which includes drivers and meals. Most of the hotels or wineries that you would stay at in the area can recommend drivers to you. Most of the drivers in the area speak very little english, so it is good to either take an online course for basics or use your Google translation app for communication if you do not speak Spanish so there is no confusion. We visited, of course, the winery where we were staying at Lapostolle, which is phenomenal; but we also went to Montes, Viu Manent, and Montgras, all of which we thoroughly enjoyed. If you arrange a top flight tasting ahead of time through your hotel or call yourself, they will let you taste all of their top wines in a quieter setting for a nominal price. It is well worth it. Another must see in the region is the Colchagua Museum. The extensive collections will blow your mind, including archeological artifacts, gems, you name it. Hope this information helps, and happy travels, Sherry
