For all #winelovers who visit Chile and even more so if they live here, winery tours are a must.  More and more wineries offer wine tourism packages every day which allows one to find the ideal visit for each person’s particular interest. If what you’re looking for is to taste different wines with great character and quality, this is the place for you.

The moral of this story: Don’t taste 40 year Tawny Port!  All lesser ports will be nice, but you’ll forever be thinking about the 40.  You have been warned!

Horses have long been a part of South Africa’s winemaking history. Before tractors and motorcars were so prolific, it was our four-legged steeds we relied on to get the job done.

Stallions and fillies alike would be charged with transporting grapes to the cellar, delivering wine to the towns, providing a ride for vineyard pruners and much more.

Legend has it that roses were planted at the end of a vineyard row so that if a horse took the corner too sharply it would be scratched by the thorns. It’s said that only later were roses used as an early warning system for mildew.
