First, a few tips:
The area covered by this sample itinerary is densely populated and well connected. Anyway, you should be well prepared in case of a breakdown. Do not drive after a wine tasting! In Chile, „Tolerancia 0“ is applied, that means, exactly 0 per mill alcohol is allowed. Please, agree on whose turn it is to drive, before going to a wine tasting or eating out. It is advisable to book visits to wineries or other guided tours in advance. Most wineries also offer tours in English.
