Cleanse your palette and put on your stomping shoes because today marks the beginning of the 8th annual Colchagua Valley Grape Harvest Festival in Santa Cruz, Chile!

The festival is one of the country’s most important national festivals as it celebrates the traditions and rural lifestyle of central-southern Chile. From the grape to the glass, festival-goers are afforded the opportunity to actively participate in the harvest and other festivities, and are taught by experts about what makes the Colchagua Valley wines special amidst the many impressive wines of Chile.

And as if enjoying an incredible bouquet in the bucolic Chilean countryside weren’t enough, there will also be live music provided by the renowned Chilean group Los Jaivas. Does it get any better than this?

This year’s festival runs from March 2 to March 4.
