  • We booked a tour of the Montes Vineyard during our stay in Santiago and I'm glad we did. The drive to Santa Cruz takes about an hour but the scenery along the route added to the overall experience. We...  more »
  • Impressed by the fine wines and imposing structure, but that does not interfere with the landscape. The main building appears to be born of a bunch of straight lines and does not affect the natural beauty of the vineyard. Recommend the tour and tasting of wines.

  • A nice wine tasting tour. Just like any other however the guide was chatty and explained the whole process pretty well. You learn a bit about wine tasting, and they make pretty good wines, which are mostly exported to the US and Europe. The whole structure that houses the storage, wine tasting room etc is constructed based on feng shui. Worth a visit
  • Very nice place and wines!!!
  • Spectacular experience! Very good tour, excellent wines to taste and a view of postcards. 100% recommended.

Where to stay in Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz has become known for providing a glimpse into the country's agricultural heritage, though not at the expense of development. As such, you'll find a good mix of accommodations around the main town and its rural outskirts. Refined hotels and boutique guesthouses dominate the main urban area, along with simpler fare for more budget-conscious travelers located on side streets. Heading out of town, a good number of converted farm buildings and ranches offer characterful lodgings amidst the region's attractive scenery.
