We had an excellent guided tour with Macarena, she welcomed us warm and friendly, gave us a perfect impression of the main processes in the winery both on the hills and in the cellar, and explained professionally the philosophy and the challenges of the great winery. The highlight was, of course, the tasting of the extraordinary creations of this winery... More

Lovely vineyard and winery. The tours are private making for an interesting and educational experience for the dedicated oenophile as well as the more casual wine lover. The property enjoys varied and interesting microclimates explored via four wheel drive vehicle. The tour concluded with a tasting of three excellent and unique examples of the results achievable to the maker with... More

My wife, best friend and I visited el principal on a whim recommendation from our hotel and it was life changing. The property was absolutely stunning with vines both on flat land and up in the hills. Macarena gave us an absolutely all access tour which was one of a kind given the small size of the vineyard. The tour... More

After finding this winery online, we booked a tasting with Marcarena. She was extremely knowledgeable and the wines were fantastic. Setting is intimate and much more relaxing than the bigger wineries. It was our favorite of the trip and we hit quite a few wineries in Colchagua.

Probably one of the best experiences I have ever had! Love Santiago and anyone who wants to get a little outside of the city and taste world class wines with great people, and see some of the most stunning vineyards views anywhere in the world! Awesome place! Pat Travis, C.S.

For a small, intimate wine tasting, this place is the best. We loved the views over Maipo Valley from the property...stunning! Macarena is awesome. She is very responsive to emails, was great with our kids, speaks great English, and she was a pleasure to be with. The wines are fantastic. This was our favorite winery, by far, in Chile.

El Principal's stunning location complements their excellent wines and we had an interesting and enjoyable trip in the truck up to the high vineyards - not just for the views but to feel the terroir and sample the near-ripe grapes. A delightful contrast to the dull visit to concha y toro.

Marcarena Saa F. is the Jefe de Turismo y Eventos at this winery where I received a private tour and tasting. She knows about everything and tells you when she isn't sure. She speaks perfect English. This winery should definitely be on your list when you visit Santiago, it is just a bit further down the road than C &... More
