Two hours from Santiago, Tumunan is tucked into the Andes, surrounded by vineyards, lovely landscaping and wild blackberries everywhere if you time it right.
We visited in March and Will and his wife made our group of six feel as if we were visitors in their home, not just a lodge. The food was terrific. And Will, the owner, set up some amazing adventures. We toured a variety of wineries--small and private, large and established. We had a private wine tasting along with an evening astronomy show at the lodge. We had a great time fly fishing. Then Will put together two different horse rides. One was a one-night adventure where we tented beside a plumbed house where we ate a lovely dinner at a table cooked on a stone grill.
The second was a three-day ride into the Andes. This time we tented in more typical fashion, except our Chilean guides brought grass-fed lamb and cooked it to perfection on a wood fire at night. We also had asado steaks and the traditional choripanes--sausage rolls, all topped by freely flowing Carmenere wine. Perfect.
The lodge also has a beautiful pool, a wood-fired hot tub and plenty of opportunities to hike around the area. We had a great visit.
