Live the life of a fancy gaucho (or huaso in Chile!) with a three day ranch experience in the hills of Casablanca. Explore the region on horseback, take comfort in traditional Chilean cuisine, sleep peacefully in a private cabin with a deck to observe the stars, and delight in some of the region’s finest wines in an exclusive afternoon tasting.
If you want to escape from it all, take a three day break at this peaceful ranch in the hillsides of Casablanca. Each day you will take a different horse trek to discover new areas and sights in the region visiting canyons, century-old cactus, mountain springs, and beautiful views. Return home to special meals, wine tasting and a chance to enjoy the peace of the lush Casablanca hillsides. This is a chance to relax and live the simple life of a working ranch!
10.30 am. Your first horseback ride at the Rancho. 2.5 hours to bond with your stead as you explore the nearby nature trails.
2 pm. Head home for a hearty welcome, Chilean style! A generous BBQ with locally sourced meats and homemade bread and salads.

4pm. Get ready to explore the wines of Casablanca with a terroir tasting by our Squeeze expert. An intimate, private tasting with top wines from the region and a discovery of the key identity of Casablanca wines. Keep the bottles to enjoy over the evening, and tuck into a local charcuterie plate as you watch the sunset.
