How disappointing! I've known about Almaviva wine for many years, purchasing some whenever and wherever I could, including US and Australia. So, when planning our trip to Santiago to visit family, I was all excited at the idea of visiting the Almaviva winery!!
What a disappointment! Their website is poorly done, and does not answer basic questions, such as: can I taste a variety of wines in a tasting room? Is there a store where I can buy wine, by the bottle or the case? Can they/will they ship my purchases to the US? Is there a nice restaurant on the premises (like at casa de Bosque, for example)?
All their website wants to do is sell a visitor a one hour tour for $80USD/person with apparently a single, small tasting at the end (per some TripAdvisor reviews).
. There were 4 of us, all who have toured wineries before--no way will we spend $80 each for a one hour tour and tiny tasting!! .
I had to ask a Spanish-speaking family member to call to even obtain answers to above, from an not very helpful Carla -- various tastings? --no;. Some sort of store? - yes; Shipping to US? -- she didn't know and Charlotte (who might have answers) was not available; Restaurant? not on site.
Sadly, it appears the owners are too successful to care about individual customers.
We chose to go to a different winery, which does care and caters to visitors.
Very disappointing. I'll remember this the next time I'm temped to buy their wine!

Overpriced

First, guide not from Chile
According the price you pay expecting to have a sommelier in the tasting
Only one glass of wine, and water... other places offers cheese or some crackers.
Second, you never see the bottle of wine suppose you are drinking only dummy bottle.
Third, OTHER wine stores are cheaper to buy.

Private tour!
Jun. 2015 • Couples
The visit was in the same day we landed in Santiago. We went straight from the airport and arrived 30min. late! Luckly we were the only people for the last tour.
It is a complete visit going through the vineyards, the pressing room, the fermenting vats, the maturing celular, the bottleling and labelling. It ended in the tasting of the 2009 Almaviva, that was being prepared during the visit and served in a temperature controlled room. A top wine with aromas of red and black fruits (cherry, black currant), tobacco, vanilla and dark chocolate!
Not to compare with the Concha y Toro (Disney-like) tour, even the seated tasting with food pairing.

WOW - wine is amazing
Jan. 2016 • Couples
We had a private tour. Enjoyed the 2012. Its UNBELIEVABLY GOOD. A truly outstanding wine. This is not cheap. But if you love wine and you want the best, this is one of the best wines made in Chile.

Chilean wine at its finest
Mar. 2015 • Friends
An incredible joint venture by Concha y Toros and Rothschilds. The winery is the most beautiful I have ever seen. The doors are made of oak barrels. The barrel room is paneled in wood. Our guide was very knowledgeable and I could go on and on about the wine. They make one red blend of cabernet, carminiere, cab franc, syrah and merlot. OH WOW!!!

Disappointing

Very difficult to find, no signage. $90 pp for a half glass of 2009 Almaviva, which retails for $149 USD.

Excelent Tour
Feb. 2015 • Family
Very nice place, one of the best wine in Chile. We had a great experience at this winery. It is small with a very exclusive production. The tour was done only for us and the guide Alvaro was really knowledgeable and made us fell like visiting a friend. I recommend this tour if you like wine and would like to see how one of the best wines of the new world is born...

Too Much Trouble?

This was a tough winery to schedule and when we arrived we apparently were something of a surprise. They threw together a quick tour that seemed, well, thrown together. Love their wines, though.
