Kingston & La Recova

This tour is an introduction to the work of two of these artisans who have chosen Chile as their basis for wine making.

Some people believe winemaking is not an industry per se, but a form of art as old as painting!

This tour is an introduction to the work of two of these artisans, Kingston & La Recova, who have chosen Chile as their home base for winemaking.

The Kingston winery has a very intriguing history about how the great-granddaughter of an American mining engineer who came to Chile looking for gold, ended up creating a vineyard.

The La Recova vineyards has 11 km of land inwards from the Pacific Ocean and cover a terroir of 6 hectares of majestic Sauvignon Blanc!

The tasting is directly from the barrel and includes different harvest years paired with a selection of cheese, olives & olive oil.

You will be picked up at 9.00 and returned at 18.00 to your hotel. Drive time is about 1 hour from Santiago.

In the last 20 years, Chile has explored areas outside of the traditional Maipo Valley and has moved vineyards to cooler micro-climates closer to the coast like Casablanca and Colchagua. This led to new productions outside of the traditional Cabernet Sauvignon – like Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Riesling and extraordinary blends like the Chardonnoir (Bodegas RE).
The arrival of Chilean wines in the established old world wine production caused a proper “terremoto”: Chile showed the world its wines can compete with the Super Tuscans and traditional Bordeaux wines at much more accessible prices.

When the old world cheap augmentin came to Chile, the traditional winemakers from Italy and France immediately recognized Chile’s potential for its steady climate, quality of soil and unspoiled natural conditions. Due to its geography, Chile is much like an island which very much protects its flora & fauna. Therefore we can often find grape varieties back in Chile, which is now extinct in Europe due to the Phylloxera plague.
By the end of the 19th cent,ury the Phylloxera plague pretty much destroyed all of Europe’s wine grapes, most notably in France. An example of a grape variety that has been found back in Chile is the Carmenère grape in the Aquitania winery in Santiago.

In the 90s Chileans discovered the potential in the wine industry which led to an enthusiastic new generation of winemakers and viticulturists. Along with the more traditional buildings marked by its European influence of the wine experts from the Old world, a whole new wave of modern architecture has embarked upon the Chilean wine houses, with amazing creations like Viña Vik or Casa Lapostolle wineries.
Chile’s fast progress using new technologies applied to old winemaking traditions has made it possible to move around mass market labels and to create high level quality wines – unique to Chile.
Finesse, elegance, diversity, complexity & authenticity are the signature to Chile’s world class premium wines!
