South American Wine Tours

Take the Wine Train
The train is made up of sleek looking black, first class carriages, aptly called, Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere, and Merlot. Cristian Gonzales Flores, who runs the tour, explained that it was built in Germany in 1923 and imported to Chile in 1929. Each carriage has been meticulously restored with polished wooden fittings and velvet upholstery. And it now runs the 42 kilometre route to Santa Cruz, as it did all those years ago. If you want a more personalized experience you can opt for the premium service, where you get upgraded to the dinning car, and can try out Premium and Reserve Wines. These wines are made by growing less vines per hectare and the wine is matured in oak barrels, rather than a stainless, steel ones, for over a year. The cost is roughly $40/person.
