Casablanca Valley (locally known as Ruta del Vino de Casablanca) is Chile’s popular wine processing centre, located between the Capital Santiago and coastal town of Valparaiso. I didn't have a chance to stopover here, but as I was returning from Valparaiso to Santiago, I had the chance to take some pictures from the car.
The climate is also a factor. The max I ever experienced in my lifetime was 22 degree centigrade- my cab driver told me.
It was very scenic drive. The Hollywood style signage are hard to miss. Don’t have much text to write, just sharing few pics. I’m told it is possible to visit these wineries and taste them/learn more about wine making process. (Similar to Tea Factory visits in Ooty/Srilanka) But this was not on my agenda.
Vina Indomita that you see in pics above is believed to be Casablanca's most conspicuous winery, owning about 600 hectares + . Vina Indomita also has a nice valley view restaurant, if you're interested. Details here
