The winery is known for its red, particularly merlot.
After a stop for lunch (additional cost) you'll continue your Chilean wine experience at Concha y Toro. Founded in 1883 by Don Melchor Concha y Toro, the winery is today the largest producer of export wines in Chile.

A lot of fun. What a beautiful drive to the winery and our stop for lunch was at a very nice restaurant. A nice outing for anyone who wants to get out of the city and see the countryside
This was a really terrific tour! We had such a great time, and the wineries were both terrific. Cousino Macul had a smaller, more personal feel, and Concha y Toro was more of a production-two very different places, but both with very good wine!
My only change would be to include either time for lunch or have a lunch included. We were picked up at 10:30am and we returned about 6pm. We had about 8 minutes to get empanadas at the restaurant at Concha y Toro, which was a lifesaver!
The wine is HANDS DOWN amazing....You just need to actually go and do the tastings. I bought a Viator deal with the basic tastings too. I wasn't too fond of the actual tour. I had bought a Viator tour that included Cousino Macul and Concha y Toro...I will say that I enjoyed the tours of Cousino Macul and the wine from Concha y Toro..
A definite must visit if you go to Santiago!!
Great trip, great guide and driver. Wineries beautiful. Every one very well informed about wines and local stuff. Very nice day. Must do in Santiago
It was excellent. The Cousino Macul is the best. Provided the detailed history of the Chilean wine and how to evaluate wine. Concha Y Toro is a bit more commercialized. I wish the tour goes to another smaller vineyard. We enjoyed the recommended restaurant for lunch.
Fantastic tour, had a great day. The guide Claudio spoke English and was very professional and tried really hard to make sure the trip was great!
Jorge was our tour guide, and we shared the tour with another couple who spoke another language- poor Jorge had to say everything twice! But it was a lovely day and the wineries were fabulous.
Very enjoyable and relaxing. Convenient pickup time from our hotel, informative guided tours in English, and excellent wines offered for tasting. Lunch stop had great Chilean food and music. Pace was good and an overall memorable experience.
We really loved this trip. Even though you only visit two vineyards, they were definitely worth it. The restaurant where lunch is had at is really nice too. I would do this tour again.
Combining the two wineries was an awesome idea! The mix of the family-bred little Cousiño Macul and the large corporate-style Concha y Toro was a perfect way to experience the Santiago wine scene.
Guide was punctual, informative and a pleasure to spend the day with.
Food was excellent
We were the only two on the tour ! A very good and knowledgeable guide made for a great day out to two of the best wineries
We actually visited the Undurraga winery instead of Cousino Macul and it was an excellent tour - our young guide certainly knew his stuff and spoke fluent English, as did the guide at Concha y Toro. Altogether a very enjoyable and worthwhile day - highly recommended.
We had a great time! Freddy was our tour guide, and he spoke great English. Because it was a mid-week trip during the "off-season", we ended up having a private tour. It was a lot of fun and we recommend it. Thank you!
What a enjoyable experience- first, the local tour driver was prompt, with a very clean van, and knowledgeable of the area. The two wineries were extremely informative in sharing their wine creation process, with very nice gifts at the conclusion of the tour. Finally, the lunch location chosen by the driver was very nice, reflective of local Chile cuisine. A worthwhile day trip while in Santiago.
First of all, the Cousino Macul tour was cancelled and the other tour that replaced it was Cavas del Maipo. The Cavas del Maipo and Concha y Toro tours were great. The tour in general was terrific and our guide Gonzalo was very, very good. I will recommend this tour to all our friends here in Asuncion. Thank you very much for the great service.
