Just as more and more wine lovers are discovering the quality and value of Chilean wines, more and more world travelers are discovering the exciting travel opportunities of this gorgeous country. Few places on earth combine such breathtaking landscape and culture at such affordable cost.

Chile, and in particular Colchagua Valley, is becoming an increasingly preferred destination as savvy travelers become more aware of all it offers.

National wine critics have fallen in love with the region. Colchagua has been described as “The Next Napa” (Wine Enthusiast, March 2002) as “arguably Chile’s premier opportunity for world-class wine production” (Wine Spectator, April 30, 2002), and as “2005 Wine Region of the Year,” yielding “some of the most compelling wines in the world” (Wine Enthusiast, 2005).

Recently, a Napa-style wine train service was introduced, offering guests convenient, comfortable and entertaining access to many of the Valley’s wineries and historic points.


Leading the way for tourism is the elegant Viña La Playa Winery Hotel, a beautiful boutique resort offering a unique wine experience. Opened in March 2004, this unique wine-country facility is beautifully situated among our vineyards on the Tinguiririca riverbank. It is easily accessible by car (about two and a half hours from the capital city of Santiago), or via our private airstrip.

The hotel is a classic Chilean hacienda-style property featuring four-star overnight accommodations for our guests, who sleep under the same roof that protects La Playa’s Premium wine cellars. The gracious hosts and their friendly, experienced staff create a luxurious yet inviting family atmosphere.

The Tinguiririca dining room’s international cuisine is world-class, crafted by our chef. Each dish is created not only for delicious taste, but to complement perfectly with La Playa wines.

Our guests also enjoy abundant recreational activities, such as swimming, tennis, horseback riding, and canoeing, as well as day trips to regional attractions and nightlife in the nearby city of Santa Cruz (population about 50,000).

For anyone wishing to discover the charms of Chilean wine country in luxurious comfort, there is no better way than relaxing with fine wines at the Viña La Playa Winery Hotel. Welcome to Colchagua!
