If you like horseback in the countryside, through vineyards, forests and rivers, and want to taste an excellent Maipo Valley wine in a historic winery, this is the perfect plan for you.
You will also be delighted with a delicious Chilean country grill and excellent wine next to an open fire in an idyllic spot.
The experience we offer you is to begin the journey having a country breakfast at a local breeder while the horses are being saddled and bridled. You can do it yourself if you wish. Once we have finished with breakfast we start the excursion: we make our way along the river, ride among the vineyards, we enjoy the wonderful views from the hills, we listen to the pure song of nature, cross streams of clean and fresh water and stop to do a toast at the foot of the grave vines! In all, we fully enjoy this idyllic spot.
After enjoying the ride, we will delight you with a typical Chilean country barbecue and after lunch, we will visit a vineyard in the Maipo Valley. The historic Undurraga winery.
Once inside the vineyard, while walking in between the grape vines, your guide will explain you the facts that make this winery so interesting. Its past, some Chilean traditions and the winery present state.
We will tell you about its development, how it evolves and the technology behind that finally make the wine so excellent. Natural cultivation of the grape vines, with minimal human intervention, results in healthy and mature grapes, a high quality raw material to make excelent wines. While walking inside the cellar, we will explain you the wine making process and we will have a final tasting of three magnificent wines.
You will also get the chance to approach the native pre-columbian culture visiting the Undurraga´s Mapuche Museum that recreates the cosmovision and way of life of the prehispanic inhabitants of this central area of Chile.
