The Tren del Vino is one of the major attractions of Santa Cruz. Your journey will commence in Santiago where you will board a bus to travel down to San Fernando. In San Fernando you will board the Tren del Vino and during the ride you will taste exquisite wines accompanied by a selection of cheeses, whilst listening to traditional Chilean folk music.


On arrival in Santa Cruz you will be transported to a vineyard for a tour and tasting followed by lunch. After checking in to the Santa Cruz Hotel your guides will take you to visit the Colchagua Museum where you will have time to explore the local town.
