Casablanca Vacation, Tours and Travel Packages
Something different on a Chile vacation will be a visit to Casablanca, or “White House” in English, a Chilean city located in the Valparaiso Province on Route 68, linking Santiago to Valparaiso.
For most of its history, the region that Casablanca covers was used for dairy farming, however, in the past thirty years, it has been transformed into Chile’s fastest-growing wine region. It began in 1982 when winemaker Pablo Morandé recognized that the conditions in Casablanca were similar to those found in California’s Carneros region. While many considered the idea to be crazy, Morandé planted twenty hectares of chardonnay, riesling and sauvignon blanc grapes. The result was crisp, fresh wines that gained appreciation around the world. Casablanca is now considered by many to be the great discovery in winemaking of the modern era and is responsible for producing most of Chile’s white wines.
Today, Casablanca is home to eight wineries and over 10,000 acres of vines. While best known for its white wine production, the area also makes great reds including pinot noir, merlots and carménere. The vineyards are open year-round except for major holidays and provide excellent tours and wine-tasting facilities as well as stylish restaurants. This beautiful stretch of coastal land invites and attracts a high number of tourists each year on Chile vacations.
