Review of Erasmo

Erasmo
More attraction details
Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Organic vineyard. Prior appointment recommended. Vineyard and cellar visit, wine tastings, and farm grown organic food. The old "adobe" colonial cellar is one of the very few still producing estate bottled wine to this day. Visiting the Erasmo winery gives the opportunity of experiencing hand crafted award winning winemaking.
Useful Information: Bathroom facilities, Wheelchair access, Food available for purchase

Caliboro is special place in the dryfarming land of the Maule Region, only 45 minutes away from Talca city. I went in january, right in the middle of the hot & dry chilean summer. I had the chance to have a country lunch with the locals as well as walk the vineyards of the operation. We listen traditional music while enjoying tasty food, drinking Erasmo's wine and sharing colourful stories. If you are looking for a truly unique experience, I highly recommend to pay a visit to Erasmo cellar and Vineyard if you ever in the Maule region, it's a place that will stay with you and it will make you come back for more.

Maule is a good 3 hours from Santiago, but it would be worth the drive just to visit the Caliboro (Erasmo) estate. Having led wine tours to Chile for over 18 years, this region is still off the radar of most of my guests, and it's really fun to show people the amazing potential (and history) that Chile has in areas that are off the main tourist route. My latest visit I was hosting a group of 10 mangers of some of America's top private clubs, and they were all blown away by not only the hospitality and the geography, but of course the wine.
We were hosted by co-owner Andres Solar and Cesar Opazo, General Manager of the Estate, who drove down the dusty trail to meet us before we even got to the estate. After a short hands-on introduction to the vines, we continued to the bodega and house where we were greeted with aperitifs and a whole lamb, sizzling in front of the fire. One of the best traditional lunches you could wish for, great tour of the cellar, wonderful hospitality and some of the best wines in Chile. Only thing lacking was Andres partner, Count Francesco Marone Cinzano, who was back at his other estate, Col d'Orcia in Montalcino, Italy. Next time hopefully we'll meet him also!

We stayed in Erasmo Cellar, We were lucky to stay at Count Francesco’s House.
Excellent food, people are very friendly, Most of all Wine is great! We had vertical tasting of Erasmo from 2002 to 2009. It was fantastic.
Erasmo is few wine which has aging potential such a long time in Chile. I dare say Erasmo is the Best Wine in Chile.
In addition, their late harvest wine is very unique and special, not only flavor and taste but also the way of making wine. We were lucky to see how they make late harvest wine.
This is perfect place for wine growing.
It was great experience. I miss Caliboro so much.
Thank Francesco, Cesar, all staff.
