Visit one of Chile’s most famous wineries — Concha y Toro — on this half-day tour from Santiago. Since its start in the late 1800s, when a man named Don Melchor brought over and planted grapes from the Bordeaux region of France, Concha y Toro has become a household name for wine aficionados. With a guide, tour the gorgeous vineyard and gardens, enjoy a wine tasting and explore the underground cellar that spawned the winery’s best-known wine: Casillero del Diablo. Hotel pickup and drop-off are included.

Returns to original departure point
After your hotel pickup from Santiago, relax on the 30-minute drive south of the city to Concha y Toro winery, located in the Maipo Valley winemaking region.
As you pass through the grand entrance, marvel at the beautifully landscaped grounds of the winery, which was founded in 1883. Meet your winery guide and group, and start your winery tour in the gardens next to Casona, the former summer home of the Concha y Toro family. Then, head into the old Pirque vineyards to learn about the winery’s techniques for growing and maintaining the vines.
Hear about the master vineyard keepers who keep a close watch on the vines all year long, and then listen to stories about the winery’s long history as you enjoy the wonderful view of the Maipo Valley from the winery terrace.
Next, enjoy a tasting of Casillero del Diablo, a carmenere varietal (a grape originally from Bordeaux) that’s one of the best-known Chilean wines in the world, and then descend into the winery’s underground cellar, also called Casillero del Diablo (the Devil’s Cellar). Hear the fascinating tale about Concha y Toro’s founder, Don Melchor de Santiago Concha y Toro, who told the public back in the late 1800s that the devil lived in the cellar to keep them away from his private collection of wine. Thus, the legend of Casillero del Diablo was born.
End your tour at the wine bar for a wine tasting. If you select the wine-only option, sample two wines from the flagship Casillero del Diablo label. Or, select the wine-and-cheese pairing option, which includes four wines from Marques de Casa Concha, a premium label, accompanied by gourmet cheese.
Before heading back to Santiago, browse the wine shop for books, souvenirs and, of course, bottles of wine to take home.

Marco was a great driver and guide. With time to spare before the tour, we got fresh empanadas from a roadside hut. Concho y Toro was great and the taste testing was amazing.
Rod was excellent and very funny. Small group was great. Winery staff was knowledgeable and helpful, and everyone was very patient. Suggestion: Give directions to the hotel from the metro. Google Earth is not accurate.
Perfect for family with little or no knowledge about wines. We learnt a lot and experienced some tasty wines and finally saw Casillero del Diablo....
Lightside was we were picked little late from our apartments due to some bad traffic however made it on time to the tour
I felt this excursion was overpriced for what we got. Basically we got transportation to the winery and back, and the winery tour was given by the employees of the winery. We were picked up on time, but still had to wait about 40 minutes before the winery tour actually started. We enjoyed the winery tour, but feel that we may have saved money just taking a taxi to the winery instead.
They were one hour late picking us up so we missed part of the tour, but overall it was ok
Very nice tour. Not sure why there is a driver and a guide, some economy could be in place if the guide drove. Guide provided some geographic and political insight while enroute.
The tour guide was very knowledgeable not only about the winery, but local customs and history. It was very convenient being picked up at our hotel.
Once at Concha y Toro the tour was nice. Only 75 minutes long. About an hour driving in the van to and then another hour from the winery with no commentary. So I found it a long afternoon and a little expensive just for a 75 minute tour
The driver was very knowledgeable and friends Emily. Clean car and all you need. Would strongly recommend to check out these guys :-)
Great driver. very knowledgeable. Wine tour pretty good, we went for the add-on tasting with cheese, which was well worth it.
Once we got to the winery it was great - we really enjoyed it - the history, the grape tasting and the wine tasting but it was only one hour out of an advertised trip of 4 hours which was disappointing. A very opinionated driver who frequently voiced his opinions on womens place in society housekeeping and breeding irritated my wife and I.
This turned out to be a Private Trip to Concha Y Toro Winery. While that was wonderful, we would have preferred a group tour. This is not a working Winery, however it was a nice tour.
Pick-up at hotel was at scheduled time of 2:30 but traffic was horrendous and we didn't arrive at the winery until 4:05. By this time there were no tours in English so we were forced to do a one hour winery tour in Spanish, a language we do not speak or understand. Our driver said that he mentioned to the transport company that the scheduled time of 2:30 was too late for this tour but the company declined to change the time. So my husband and I spent $159.98 for a tour that failed to take into account the horrible traffic in Santiago and was delivered in a language that was foreign to us. To say that this whole tour was unacceptable is an understatement.
The tour was fabulous. I had an issue beforehand as I found out only a few days before that the tour I booked was unavailable. I had booked a wine and cheese tasting tour in the AM in English, and was told that was only available in the afternoon (which I could not make). The local tour office rebooked me for a mid morning wine tasting only tour. It was a little disappointing, but I was refunded the difference in the cost and the wine alone was still great. My driver did not speak any English, but the tour at the winery was in English and was fabulous for someone who knew very little about vineyards and wine-making!
The wine tour was fun and the tour guide was pleasant and knowledgeable. I learned more there than I did on the wine tours in France. The only complaint I have was that I paid the extra for more wine tastings with the cheese plate and they gave me the lesser wine tour package (fewer wine tastings and no cheese). Before I could say anything, the guide was running off to his next tour group.
