Day 2: White wines from the Casablanca Valley
On your second day of adventure through the vineyards of the central area, we recommend you go to Casablanca Valley, which is located 72 km from Santiago.
This fertile valley located between the coastal range and the Pacific Ocean is characterized by a refined production of white wines and its Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc variety.
Do not forget to combine the wines with the sophisticated local gastronomic preparations at one of the many restaurants in the area.

Day 3: Discover the Colchagua Valley and its incredible museum
One of the valleys with the greatest international prestige in the country is Colchagua, well-known for offering cultural activities such as museum visits.
We recommend you go to the Automobile Museum, full of vehicles from all eras.
Moreover, a funicular goes up to the top of Chamán Hill, where you can see the constellations in the observatory that bears its name from. Amazing!
