These vineyards make up part of the stunningly colourful landscape. The wine barrels are made from leather, oak or American oak, which have helped Bolivian wine to win different international competitions for wine production. The erosion of the soil in the area improves the wine’s texture and taste. We will visit industrial wine factories...
After a scrumptious breakfast of plums, figs, grapes, lucuma and other local fruits, we will explore the private reserves, before taking a walk around the city to marvel at its main historical sights, related to the Spanish conquest and palaeontology.
