Thursday, Nov 29 – Return to Santiago

December 1, 2012

We left Valparaiso down a much less steep route, that largely avoided vertigo.  We drove back on Rte 68, which is the expressway back to Santiago through the Casablanca valley.  You can see the Valle de Casablanca in light orange on this map:

The link to the article with this map is here.  We stopped at Casas del Bosque, and acquired a Sauvingnon Blanc Reserve and at Veramonte where we found a Shiraz rose and a Pinot Noir.  The founder of Veramonte, Agustin Huneeus, has properties in Napa California under Huneeus Vitners.

We braved the traffic back into Providencia to return our rental car, using the tunnel under Mount Cristobal. It turned out that we had a very poor map of Santiago, but we were still able to find the Avenida Balboa and Alamo Rental Car.

El Jardin de Epicuro is on the next street from the Orly, on Orrego Luco.  They have started a tasting menu, which we thoroughly enjoyed.
