When we begin a journey that seeks to reconcile us with that world that we sometimes lose amid the chaos of daily life, we need experiences that are capable of being installed in our soul. Maipo Pairing is without a doubt one of those “trips within the trip” in which everything we see, smell ad hear seeks to connect us with who we really are. Who does not feel eternal among the aromatic grapes of a vineyard? Who does not forget the pains when in the mouth they find the balance of a cabernet sauvignon and the firmness of a mature cheese? Our day begins at the premises of Concha y Toro Vineyard, where through its famous “Marqués de Casa Concha” tour we taste four strains of the Premium wines of the “Marqués de Casa Concha” line and a fine selection of cheeses. All guided by an expert sommelier of the house. We end the day in the centenary vineyard Santa Rita where the “Selection” tour allow us an exhaustive historical and wine tour, passing through the historic “Bodega 1” made of “cal y canto” (traditional mixture of lime and egg, used in some constructions of Chilean colonial period) and the famous “Bodega de los 120 patriotas”, nowadays, a national treasure. The tour finishes with a tasting of 1 Reserve wine and 2 Ultra Premium wines paired with cheeses and cookies.
