Chile & Argentina wine trips

Jump to last reply

Hey! I'm the editor of the upcoming Fodor's guide to Chile, published next August---I visited this past September and had a great time. I learned quite a bit while I was there; some of my tips are here: http://www.fodors.com/news/story_2943.html

One of my favorite stops during the trip was Matetic, in San Antonio/Casablanca on the way to the coast. I also liked Haras de Pirque, a combination racing horse stable and winery run by the Antinori family. Has anyone visited any of these? Or do you have another favorite? I was surprised at how many choices there are, and how different each one was.

My biggest recommendation to anyone visiting Chilean wine country is to realize that while you can do your own transportation, you'll have a much better experience with a guide. Would you agree? Or do you have another tip for first time travelers?

I want to visit Argentina's wine country next---has anyone ventured to both? I'm curious as to which I'll like better.
