The series transports guests to the pioneering vineyard in winery in Chile, which continues to push boundaries to deliver a groundbreaking portfolio of wines and world-class hospitality experience.

VIK is pleased to be featured in the second season of Wine First, the PBS television series that takes viewers to some of the world’s best wine regions and preeminent vineyards. In the series, Hosts Liora Levi and Yolanda Año showcase wines that reflect the character of each region they visit along with culinary offerings to pair with the flavors. In season two of Wine First, viewers enjoy an in depth look into the many facets that make VIK globally renowned, including conversations with Alex and Carrie Vik, the innovators behind the project, Cristian Vallejo, the winemaker, Gaston Williams, CEO at VIK, chef Pablo Cáceres, and more.

Ideally positioned in Chile’s Millahue Valley, or “place of gold,” the goal at VIK since its inception has been to create wines that would enter the pantheon of the great wines of the world. The magnificent property, which was recently named the third best vineyard in the world by the World’s Best Vineyards, unfolds across 11,000 breathtaking acres. Set amongst the mountains and sweeping valleys with the soaring Andes Mountains in the distance, the winery, designed by architect Smiljan Radic in collaboration with Alex and Carrie Vik, features an unprecedented design which is at once state-of-the-art, highly sustainable, and a spectacular visual display. Thoughtfully designed to have minimal impact on the landscape, the winery prioritizes natural viticultural and winemaking processes to efficiently optimize natural resources. The winery’s internationally renowned and award winning family of wines includes VIK, Milla Cala, La Piu Belle, and La Piu Belle Rosé. All of the wines are truly unique and have shown continued improvement with the release of each vintage, pointing to the incomparable nature, unique biodiversity, complexity of the terroir and exceptional viticulture and viniculture.

Working in tandem with the vineyard and winery is Vik Chile, a breathtaking retreat with groundbreaking architecture, art, and design, and views out across the vineyards from the mountain tops across VIK’s multiple valleys. Travel & Leisure voted it the second-best resort in South America and the World Travel Awards voted Vik Chile World’s Best Wine Region Hotel in 2022. With holism as its guiding force, the VIK experience is centered on the concept that every element comes together to create a truly exceptional, innovative, and singular experience for visitors.


VIK encourages visitors to indulge in a true immersion through world class wine and culinary experiences which is seen throughout the Wine First episode, which includes a special culinary challenge with Chef Pablo Cáceres. Milla Milla, VIK’s signature restaurant highlights the Chilean terroir through the use of locally grown and produced ingredients and a continued emphasis on authentic South American cuisine. Guests and visitors are also invited to dine in the more casual Pavilion Café at the VIK Winery, or at VIK Zero, the alfresco restaurant in the property’s extensive organic garden, where the ingredients are harvested moments before they are prepared, giving guests a truly exclusive “terroir to table” experience. VIK also offers a range of activities from the leisurely to the active, for every type of traveler. Guests are invited and unwind in the Wine Spa, a holistic spa designed to renew physical and mental energy with special therapies that perfectly blend aromas, textures and sound. Guests can embark on VIK’s many hiking trails, enjoy a picnic in the vineyard, mountain bike or horseback ride through the vineyard and valleys, relax poolside, take part in wine tastings and tours, cooking classes and much more.
