This thematic tour of two Chilean wine regions is aimed at discovering the relationship between wine and architecture. We depart from Santiago and continue along the Maipo Alto Wine Route to Viña Pérez Cruz, which won the 2004 "Best of Wine Tourism" Prize for Architecture granted by the Great Wine Capitals of the World Network. The 6,000m3 construction is made of laminated wood with plenty of natural light sources and surrounded by traditional cobblestone fences that blend well with the Maipo Alto’s natural and wine landscapes. After touring the building, you will enjoy tasting some of winery’s premium red wines.
We will continue on to the Colchagua Valley to visit Clos Apalta, one of the most impressive architectural feats in the country. The tour will reveal the architecture of the gravity-flow winery that produces the icon wine of the same name, made by Viña Casa Lapostolle.
