Probably one of the most scenic and beautiful wineries I've ever been to. The aging chamber and cellar are unbelievable - and you taste the wines in a dark cellar near the owners private collection Outdoors the views make for some great photos as well. Only comment - we found the wines sold here were actually cheaper to buy back... More

Visited Clos Apalta as part of a wine tour in the Colchagua Valley. This must be my favourite vineyard/winery. From the architecture, to the setting and the wine, Clos Apalta is consistently good across the categories. The guide was also very knowledgeable, and introduced us to the philosophy behind their wines.

Sometimes a wine venue overshadows the wine product. In the case of Lapostolle, the venue, experience, and product are all top shelf. Our group guide, Ivan, did an excellent job blending history, agriculture, wine making, cellaring and tasting as we spiraled down the multiple levels of the complex. We used Colchagua Wine Tours to make reservations, provide transportation, and guide... More

This tour takes place all within the single winery building, which was developed with stunning architecture and is decorated with amazing equipment, it was very impressive! The extremely manual process which we learned about on this tour was interesting and gave us a new appreciation of the process of wine making. And of course the tastings at the end of... More

From a technological viewpoint this winery is world class. Built into the mountain everything works by gravity. A beautiful facility with views in every direction. Apparently they keep visitors pretty well limited so it is not crowded.

Beautiful location and interesting tour. Tour guide knowledgeable. Wine tour was $30 pp which included 3 tastings. The first wine was a house wine, the second a mediocre Merlot and the 3rd, their private reserve blend which we found disappointing and probably too young to taste. ($120/bottle). Overall: Pros: scenery, tour Cons: Wine quality, $$value.

Winery is quite something, we had a personal tour with a very knowledgeable guide. But the wines were only fair.
