About the winery
The winery of “Cavas del Valle” (Cellars of the Valley) is located 6 hours north of Santiago, 1 hour drive from La Serena towards the Andes. This boutique winery is run by a retired couple, Raymundo Piraces and Marlies Duerr, in a delightful, tasteful and elegant manner. It is unique for several reasons. Firstly, it is the northern most in Chile (that means, the winery with the strongest sun), it is one of the smallest Chilean wineries, the one with the highest altitude, located (1.080 m above sea level). Besides, the climate is almost desert type, with long, 6 summer months , and extreme dryness. Tourists are attended directly by the owners, which show you the facilities and serve wine samples while you relax in an enchanting “pergola” and, finally, the winery is located in the delightful, mystic, and perfect climate of the High Elqui Valley, surrounded by silent mountains and crowned with the unrivalled nobility of the purest sky.
