The vineyard is located at the southern edge of Santiago. It has beautiful British-style gardens and estates, wine cellars galore, and those wonderfully linear fields of none other than vitis vinifera (grapes). The UC program has organized some cool trips for us.

Exquisite red wine tasting
The Cellars at Concha Y Toro are known for the devil that lives within them. As legend goes, after much thievery of specialty wines, the devil came to frequent the vineyard's cellars. He chased the thieves out and scared them for good. There have been no incidents of stolen wine since. The cellar is therefore known as El Casillero del Diablo. We got to go down inside it in the dark, and they had a light show narrate the spooky story!
