“Une excellente expérience de dégustation de vins et d’expériences gastronomiques dans des celliers différents, intéressants et typiques du savoir faire chilien en production et entreposage des vins. La diversité des vins et des méthodes fut une agréable surprise. Un excellent conducteur, une guide très experte et qui partage bien ses connaissances des domaines et des vins nous ont fait découvrir des vins que nous avons fort appréciés ce qui nous sert maintenant”.
“Ce fut un voyage mémorable. La variété des vignobles visités était remarquable. Des plus anciens aux plus modernes, tous offraient un cachet inoubliable. Les dégustations et les repas gastronomiques nous ont enchantés. Notre guide et le conducteur étaient sympathiques et compétents”.
