Editor's Note: The following contest is brought to you in partnership with LAN Airlines.

If you're not a food lover and Chile-phile before this 9-day trip, you will be after it. Should you be fortunate enough to be the Grand Prize Winner of our Chile a la Carte Sweepstakes, you and a guest will take a trip your palates–and your spirits–will never forget.

The trip begins with a flight to Santiago (on LAN, of course, where you'll experience our award-winning in-flight service), and then a quick transfer to a flight to beautiful Chiloé Island.

Here you'll go horse trekking on the beach, kayaking through scenic bays–even take a private yacht tour. You'll stay at a well-established eco-lodge, where you'll enjoy spectacular meals.

From there, it's back to Santiago, where you'll have a private cooking class with Ambrosia's master chef Carolina Bazán. Later that evening, you'll return to Ambrosia, where you'll have dinner as Chef Bazán's special guests.

You'll begin the next day with a gentle bicycle tour of Santiago, then transfer to the Santa Rita winery in the nearby Maipo Valley.

You'll spend two nights at the splendid Casa Real, the former landowner's estate that has been converted into a luxury lodge. Of course, you will have ample opportunity to savor world-class Santa Rita wines (including the mixed case that will be sent to your home.)

The colorful, bustling UNESCO port town of Valparaiso is your next stop. Here you'll explore hilly streets and fine restaurants, before one final dream meal in the seaside town of Viña del Mar.

And as if this gastronomic adventure itself weren't enough, you'll also receive three outfits per person from Toad&Co. travel gear for two from Eagle Creek and a $250 gift certificate from

Now that your appetite has been sufficiently stimulated, all you have to do is enter to win. But don't wait too long, the Chile a la Carte Sweepstakes ends at 11:59 p.m. EST, March 4, 2016.
