While their global reach is noteworthy, it’s the fact that I use to drink one of their wines, Casillero del Diablo (translated as “Devil’s Locker”), regularly when I was living back in the States.
The name alone enticed me to purchase my first bottle, but it was the relatively low cost, and Cabernets and Merlots that kept me going back for more.
But visiting Concha y Toro was more exciting, because it was my first visit to a winery whose wines I’d already been buying and consuming.
What You Need to Know
How Much: $17 for the traditional tour which includes 1-2 tastings, or $36 for the Marques de Concha tour (which includes the traditional tour + a tasting of 4 premium wines lead by a sommelier).
I highly recommend the Marques de Concha tour, which lasts an additional 30 minutes, and allows you to sample much more wine.
Where to Book: Reserve your spot online through the Concha y Toro site.
Directions: The winery is easily accessible from downtown, taking just one hour by metro. Take the blue line, #4, to Las Mercedes Station, and use the Concha y Toro exit. Then hop the 73, 80, or 81 Metrobus, or a taxi, to the winery.
What to Bring: Camera
