September 2021.- The academy “World’s Best Vineyards”, created by William Reed of the International Wine Challenge, recently revealed the best 100 vineyards in the world for oenotourism. The list selected 11 wineries from Chile, positioning Santa Rita as the best winery in the Maipo Valley and Metropolitan Region, ranking in the 28th general position.
This ranking aims to highlight the great diversity of established and emergent oenotouristic destinations in the world. The list was compiled by nominations from an academy of voters, which considered around 600 experts in travel and wine from the entire globe.
“…the Santa Rita winery is set amongst 40 hectares of Renaissance-style gardens offering a colourful sanctuary just 45 minutes from the Chilean capital Santiago”, points out the publication, which also highlights the full offer of tours and tastings of the winery. This in addition to the Hotel Casa Real experience: “With so much to see and do, lodging at the Hotel Casa Real is rather a good idea, its 16 luxurious rooms and plush set of salons designed with every comfort in mind (…) a base from which to explore the plethora of cultural gems on offer”.
