We were fortunate to spend 3 wonderful days at Mapuyampay. We had just come back from an exhausting 3 day stay in the Atacama Desert and could not have found a better place to rest up.
It is so beautiful and peaceful there and yet it is about 2 1/2 hours from Santiago and an hour from both the Colchagua and Curico wine regions. We had 2 rooms Africana and Namaste both beautifully appointed. Breakfasts and dinners were delicious but the best part of our stay was the Food and Wine Pairing cooking class. Not only did we learn some great cooking techniques from Ruth, we also got to eat our bounty paired with 4 fantastic wines. Ruth and Vincente were wonderful hosts. Staying at Mapuyampay was the highlight of our 5 week vacation. I hope to return again.
