Our aim today is to reach “Bodega Corralillo” the winery of the famous Matetic Vineyards: here we will take a wine tour, admire the impressive architecture of the building and the soft rolling hills all around us.

Reviews

My wife and I recently spent three awesome days with paseos in the wine country with this company. From the pickup at the airport to the drop off at our hotel in Santiago three days later the operation was seamless. The passion and attention to detail were as good as I've ever experienced. The biking and the wine country resemble Napa county closely. Nice mix of biking and wine tours , the best part were the guides we got to meet....Javier and his brother Jose as well as the owner Andrés and his daughter Isabella made the whole adventure more personal and lively

My family and I did a week long tour in January, and the ages of our group ranged from 1 to 65. Andres was very helpful pre arrival, customizing our entire tour and ensuring that all details were planned out.

We were extremely impressed with the quality of the tour. We started with 2 days in Santiago exploring the parks and the historical side of the city, and both Isabel and Javier were very knowledgeable and passionate about the city.

Two days in the wine region of Casablanca and Leyda Valley were well enjoyed, followed by some stunning biking in the Andes, capped off with a hike on our final day of the tour.

The staff all made us feel so welcome in Chile, and were informative the entire trip. Lunches were absolutely delicious, with home cooked meals brought along each day, and we enjoyed picnics at some beautiful points overlooking valleys, and mountains.

We really appreciated that Andres and Ines were able to customize the tour to accommodate our entire group, as we were traveling with young children, and everything turned out really well. Everyone in our group raved about the trip and we toasted with some tasty Chilean wine on our last evening, to a successful biking trip.

I highly recommend booking a tour with them- we hope to be back again one day!
