Winemaking in Chile

Reclaiming the Roots of Winemaking in Chile

The Maule Valley


With crisp Sauvignon Blancs and cool-climate Pinot Noirs from the Casablanca Valley as its poster children, Chile is steadily gaining traction in the international wine arena. The Central Valley sees thousands of thirsty visitors each day who come to discover the secrets of Winemaking in Chile.
For those willing to venture a little further afield, it’s not too late to witness a fledgling movement just taking wing.  Maule is a largely undeveloped agricultural region just south of Colchagua. Independent winemakers are turning to the stripped-down practices dating back more than a hundred years for inspiration. This search for simplicity has led to a rediscovery of traditional methods and forgotten grapes, yielding astoundingly fresh and modern results.
Price Per Person $2,436

Day 01



Travel 3.5 hours south to the Maule Valley, stopping for lunch at the historic Casa Silva winery and then a… Continue reading

PORTILLO, Chile

Portillo is one of the most unique ski resorts in the world. Why? Because Portillo offers extraordinary terrain, breathtaking surroundings, and an abundance of amenities and indoor activities – for just 450 guests. As other ski resorts become bigger and more impersonal, Portillo continues to handcraft its vacations. For more than 60 years, the owners of Portillo have strived to keep the hotel and ski center small and intimate, yet with all the modern conveniences guests have come to expect. The season opens mid June and closes the first week of October.

As an open invitation for North Americans to chase the “endless winter” and enjoy what is expected to be one of Valle Nevado’s and Portillo’s best seasons in the past decades, the resorts have launched plenty incredible deals:

An interconnect ticket to neighboring resorts opens 7,000 total acres of varied terrain, and Valle Nevado offers world-class heli-skiing directly from the resort. The Valle Nevado complex has boutique shops, six restaurants, a full-service spa and fitness center, cinema, library, bars and lounges, and breathtaking views of the magnificent Andes from every direction. The 2017 season runs from June 23 to Sept. 24.

Winter is Coming

Ah, November. The month when Mother Nature can’t decide if it’s a balmy fall day in the 70s, or the heart of winter. November is when one by one, the resorts finally start opening for the skiers and snowboarders who have been eagerly waiting those first turns.

 

It’s a month when weather reports are obsessed over, and everyone becomes an amateur meteorologist. The Farmer’s Almanac becomes a staple in conversations, and a source of elation or despair, depending on its snow predictions for the upcoming season.

 

November didn’t get off to a roaring start in Colorado. While there was a picturesque dusting on the Rocky Mountains from previous snow, it wasn’t enough to give people visions of powder days in the immediate future. Resorts have been making snow, and there will be plenty of runs open to get some nice early season cruising in, but no one had expectations of needing their powder skis on opening day.… Continue reading
