TAKE YOUR GAME TO THE NEXT LEVEL WITH SOME ED­U­CA­TIONAL VINE­YARD TOURS AND WINES FIT FOR ROY­ALTY.

SKI - - CASABLANCA VALLEY -

Al­most ev­ery morn­ing in the Casablanca Val­ley, a chilly fog en­velopes the land­scape un­til it’s burnt off by the mid-morn­ing sun or blown away by the winds of the nearby Pa­cific Ocean. This ge­o­graph­i­cally in­duced weather doesn’t al­ways reach the streets of San­ti­ago, 55 miles to the east, but the chill, fol­lowed by the stark, dry heat, does pro­vide ideal grow­ing con­di­tions for Pinot Noir, Chardon­nay, and Syrah grapes.

Hire a tour com­pany, such as Up­scape Tours, to visit some of the finest winer­ies in the Casablanca Val­ley, in­clud­ing the Kingston Fam­ily Vine­yards (pic­tured) and Vil­lard Fine Wines. Don't miss the Kingston Pinot Noir and the Vil­lard Tana­gra Syrah. Both are some of the tasti­est wines you will find in the South­ern Hemi­sphere.
