The Central Valley Sights

Viña Lapostolle-Clos Apalta

  • Winery/Brewery/Distillery

Updated 11/25/2014

Fodor's Review

Lapostolle's showcase winery is one of the most attractive pieces of architecture in Chile: the barrel-stave-shaped beams rising impressively above the vineyards create a wooden nest for the winery which is built into a hillside to facilitate the gravity-flow process. The prized grapes are picked from the biodynamic vineyards and taken to the top floor, where they are separated by hand, dropped into tanks on the floor below, then racked to barrels on the floor below, and

so on until the grapes are six floors down into the hillside, where they are finally trucked out and shipped around the world. Join one of the three daily tours with tastings, or stay for a fabulous lunch at the Lapostolle Residence with a fresh and organic menu picked straight from their own garden.
