    Tour Concha y Toro Winery. They make a famous wine called Casillero del Diablo which means the ‘Cellar of the Devil’. The winery was founded by Don Melchor and is in the Maipo Valley. The tour starts with them giving you a large wine glass and you walk around the grounds trying the wines. Fantastic! You also see the painted cellar.

    So why the ‘Cellar of the Devil’? Don Melchor noticed that some locals were slipping into the cellars at night and stealing wines so he invented a story that the Devil visited his cellar in a certain spot and the thefts stopped!
