In Feb. we spend a week in the Maipo Alto Wine Growing valley of Chile just south of Santiago doing research on potential investment properties for Wine Tourism. Right now there are no places to stay or eat in this Wine Region, but yet there are beautiful wineries that offer up exceptional wines. Jose Manuel Garcia Huidobro of Concha Y Toro opened up many doors for us to talk about a potential Wine Tourism project including a 5 star hotel, spa, restaurant and possible vineyard with the property owners. They seemed very receptive to the idea as they know that this valley would have a certain tourist appeal to the North American traveller. Jose Manuel and his architect brother, Jorge will be our Chilean partners in this project. We are very excited about its potential and will keep you posted as we will be looking for Canadian investors.
