    Whenever we drive through Curico, we stop at The Miguel Torres Winery. There is a restaurant on the premises and a nice wine shop. This vintner bottles our favorite Chilean wines, so we always carry bottles home with us.

    The Torres family were involved in making wine for three centuries, but didn't begin commercially until the 1800's. The first winery was Vilafranca del Penedes (1870). The one we visit is located in the Central Valley of Chile in Curico. It was established in l979.

    We dined in the restaurant for lunch this visit ordering these various dishes: Pork with Apricots; Filet of Beef in Mustard Sauce; Rabbit and Seafood. The children stayed with the familiar, chicken and fries. The meal began with a nice selection of vegetables and ended with sorbet and a parfait for dessert. We enjoyed wine with our meal, I had Chardonnay. You can also order the "Meal of the Day"--our son ordered this. It began with an oyster appetizer, included a Salmon entree, ending with sorbet and parfait for dessert--champagne came with the meal!

    Our favorite Miguel Torres wines are the Sauvignon Blanc, Rose and Chardonnay. The champagne goes down nicely, too!!

    Church

    by MEdelmann Updated Jun 22, 2003


    I remember a nice little church on the town square (Plaza de Armas). It was really nice but rather small and it also looked very simple inside.

    And it was amazing and funny to see that there were plenty of birds on the fassade of the church.

    Just click on the picture if you want to see the details .....

    The park

    by MEdelmann Updated Jun 22, 2003


    It seems that this is a typical thing for chilenian town squares: Most of them have a park in the middle and also this "Plaza de Armas" was no except.

    And there is further something unique on the square: In the middle of the park there is a Gingko tree, which is one of the oldest in South america.

    If you click on the picture, you will see it behind of some trees ....

    Favorite thing: On our last visit we discovered that a distributor in Dallas, Texas carried Miguel Torres wine. Since we'll moving to that area this summer, it was wonderful news!

    If you are feeling adventurous, trying one of Miguel Torres wines. Remember, these are from CHILE--not Spain.

    Mr. Sam Leake, Austral Imports, 3935 Main St., Dallas, Texas 75226. The business number is 214-394-9215 or by internet: sleake@airmail.net

    Fondest memory: Curico is the perfect place to grow grapes and fruits of all types.

    Plaza de Armas

    Favorite thing:
    Plaza de Armas is the town square of Curico and it is situated in the centre of the town.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------


    Fondest memory:
    There are some wonderful old buildings which are worth to see, like on the photo on your left.

    Watch out for them - there are some more on the market square. In the middle there is also a nice little park with an very old Gingko-tree.

    (see my other tips)

    Side street

    by MEdelmann Updated Jun 22, 2003

    Fondest memory:
    Cúrico is one of these typical small chilenian towns which can be found in the country. It is a rather small town and there is also not very much to see here. The streets looks lonely and the people do their everyday-business.

    In the morning and during the day Cúrico looks like died out - but in the evening the streets fill with people.

    This is one of the shots I took in the street where our hotel was situated.
