First, we travel to the foothills of the Andes and stop at Paidahuén Archaeological Park. Paidahuén is an isolated hill located along the northern bank of the Aconcagua River in the rural town of San Esteban. At the top of it we will appreciate slabs of large rocks adorned with petroglyphs. Full of symbolism and mystery, these rock drawings are work of native populations dating from 450 to 1,000 years ago.
Next, we will visit the nearby San Esteban Winery for a vineyard tour and tasting. San Esteban is a family-owned and operated producer of high-quality wines and table grapes. The vineyard exports to more than 20 countries. Their grapes are planted along the banks of the Aconcagua River and on the surrounding hillsides. This geography creates a micro-climate ideally suited for wine and table grape production, with a soil quality that rivals the best wine-growing regions in South America. After lunch at a nearby restaurant, we venture to the largest privately-owned alpaca farm in Chile. Indulge in nature and discover this beautiful animal up close. You will see the entire alpaca wool production process and enjoy a broad selection of exclusive creations and handmade alpaca wool items that portray the patrimony and spirit of the Andean culture, which is the World of Alpaca.
