Santiago, Chile

Journey deep into the lush Alto Maipo Valley to learn about one of Chile’s most-treasured wine blends, Don Melchor. You will tour the estate of the founder with an insightful guide, before your chance to taste some of the best vintages in the country. You can even have lunch in the estate. Your tasting session will showcase the diversity of the Don Melchor vineyards, whose grape varieties offer uniquely complex flavours. You will also learn which vintages are available on the market. 

This experience begins with a guided stroll around the grounds surrounding the summer home of the founder, Melchor de Concha y Toro. Admire the beauty and intricacy of this impressive 22-hectare park. Learn about the history of the family and their entry into the world wine market. Visit the centenary cellar and view the wine as it is being aged in French oak barrels, before you tour the original 19th-century manor house, which is not open to the public, and discover more about this fascinating, pioneering family. It is then time for your comprehensive tasting session which will showcase the family’s greatest achievements.
