Almost every other region in Chile boasts its own grape variety and fall harvest marks vendimias season stretching from late February up to early May. The festivals offer an endless variety of the best wines highly praised all over the world at quite a low cost. Some generous vendors may not even charge you. Ladies will be weighed on a balance against wine bottles to choose the Grape Harvest Queen, and whoever is not afraid of getting dirty is welcome to partake in a grape stomping competition.
Two teams will be given 20 kg of grapes and 10 minutes to trample them into juice. The most popular vendimias take place around the vineyards of Valle de Colchagua, Curico Valley, Casablanca Valley, Pirque, and many more.
