TravelPod Member ReviewsVina Casa Silva San Fernando
We arrived at around 9pm rather tired and hungry. It is such a shame that there is not a better welcome for late arrivals at Casa Silva. We raided the mini bar (why only a half bottle available) and had a $5 packet of crisps. A small welcome platter with cheese and biscuits would be easy to provide. The night guard had very little information and certainly there's no information in the rooms or public areas. The night guard did not tell us that the clocks were changing in Chile that night. The house is beautiful, the location stunning, the tour charming but the welcome and the lack of information on arrival make it a very quirky place to stay

Today we woke up at 7:30am and had breakfast in our "new apartment". The kitchen is fully stocked with cereal, bread, fruit and everything else we could possibly need... even Worcestershire sauce for Dave. Once the work started at 8:30am we were both split up, jessie going to work on the vineyard and Dave to go and help build with Hector, a Chilean who spoke English as well as we speak Spanish. After 3 hours of Hector telling Dave how much ...

... was also a collector of well things and decided to open a museum (the biggest private museum in south America). It is well worth a visit covering every thing from pre historic through to the incas, spanish conquest, independence and military (he seems to be fond of samurai - who can blame him) . It also has a large number of trains, horse carriages, wine making equipment and a printing press, it is that diverse.
The Wine Tour:
Today was a crazy day.
I woke up at 6:15, went to set up breakfast for 7, served it, talked with Hernen and Pato, the regulars, a bit, cleaned up and then headed to the vineyard to weed. Don Cele told me what to do, and I set about pulling out those pesky molestias for about 3.5 hours. I have the farmer's tan/sunburn to prove it. It was surprisingly relaxing. Mostly because every time I looked up from the ground I realized I was sitting in a vineyard, ...
Well I must be doing something right. I have officially been put in charge of the lodge for a few days. Will and Carolina left me in charge on Friday as a sort of practice and now I am in charge until Wednesday..that means making, serving, and cleaning, bfast, lunch and dinner, cleaning the rooms, bar tending at night, and in my "spare" time from that I get to water all the gardens, weed, ...
