Visit: Concha y Toro, Avenida Virginia Subercaseaux 210, Pirque 9480092 Chile
The visit begins with a walk through the grounds surrounding founder Melchor de Concha y Toro’s summer home. The beautiful 22-hectare park was designed by French landscape architect Guillume Renner and contains numerous century-old species imported from around the world.
We continue with a guided tour of Viña Concha y Toro’s historic wine cellar, where our icon wine, Don Melchor, is aged in French oak barrels.
The Don Melchor Casona (manor house) will open its doors, and your host will share the story of the different rooms, which maintain their original 19th-century style.
After learning about the history of Don Melchor de Concha y Toro and his family, we invite you to taste Don Melchor, the wine.
The tasting will begin with a selection of wines from different parcels of the Puente Alto terroir that go into Don Melchor. Each expresses the diversity of the vineyard and contributes its own distinct characteristics and together they create the complexity found in every bottle of this icon wine.
You will then enjoy the vintage of Don Melchor that is currently available in the market.
The experience concludes with a visit to the Don Melchor Collection room, which houses every vintage of Don Melchor, from 1987 to the present.
