I’ve been on many wine tours before, but nothing prepared me for the variety of good quality wines I enjoyed in Chile. In just two weeks, I drank hundreds of glasses of whites, rosés, and reds, from all over the country. Thankfully, I had a carefully planned itinerary and a designated driver courtesy of Yampu Tours, who took me to some of the best wineries around.
