We will drive north –west of Santiago one hour to “ El Quillay “ a Chilean typical Stop at the Curacaví valley in order to see how they make and try one of the most typical dishes of Chile, Empanadas, the best ones of our country are made there with the old fashion way, in adobe ovens. You will have an exclusive outdoors tasting along this great dish. Then we will continue the Casablanca Valley to visit the organic winery, Viña VOE, ever since Viñedos Emiliana began in 1986; one of its primary concerns has been the care and management of the land. This is essential for complying with the basic Emiliana premise: “Quality begins in the vineyard.” Viñedos Emiliana employs this philosophy, technology, and its many years of experience to produce high quality fruit with minimum impact on the environment, which leads it to follow the concepts of Emiliana. Under the Organic concept, the vineyard is considered to be a living resource, with an own balance that must be preserved. Because of this, the ground nutrients are generated in the same field. The Emiliana Organic spirit is sustained in the caring and absolute dedication for the vineyard and the strong commitment for the environment, achieving like this the maximum Terroir expression, preserving all the grape’s peculiarities and obtaining a result of extraordinary quality. Emiliana Vineyards invites you to a unique and unforgettable experience where you will enjoy the beautiful and natural surroundings of our gardens and organic vineyard. Additionally, they invite you to participate in the tasting of their internationally recognized and award winning premier red and white organic wines.
Then we will continue our journey to the winery House of Morandé, founded in 1996 with the aim of producing innovative wines of a great quality with a clear focus of the development. In order to receive the lovers of wine and good eating Viña Morandé open a gastronomic centre, the restaurant offers first class cuisine accompanied by their best wines. It is the perfect place to do our wine pairings. The restaurant was recently awarded the prize for the best restaurant outside the capital by the newspaper, El Mercurio, through its “Wiken” magazine, the building is a glass-and-wood indoor dining area, and pleasant patio dining overlooking a grassy expanse and grapevines. The well-balanced menu features lots of seafood. we will try their wine varieties over lunch. Then we will continue to Bodegas RE to see how the man is using modernity and technology to look back to ancestry, to nature and the earth Like Pablo Morandé (pioneered in wine production in Casablanca Valley), said, “In my winery, these tanks [concrete pods], similar to primitive ones, are a search for history and beauty. However, they have all the tools of a modern tank. Apart from looking for a beautiful, good, natural wine, there is the concept that things can be done in a simple form – almost watching the wine being made. They did it 6,000 years ago; I'm just putting it into the context of the 21st century, still respecting what they did then. This is what our wine RE is all about”. We will taste their wines and then we will continue to Millahue to try our traditions and food ending up back in your hotel in Santiago.
