Description

La Casona at Matetic Vineyards is a century-old estancia with its manicured gardens and towering palms. It is joined to one of South America’s most avant-garde wineries, and makes for a wonderfully pampering retreat among the rolling hills of the Rosario Valley. This is one of Chile’s most attractive wine regions, and it is a great place to learn about the principles of biodynamic winemaking, before tasting some of the estate's creations - the Syrah, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay are world-class.

The property itself has seven spacious guest rooms, all furnished with four-poster beds, oak furniture, thick damask curtains, gilt-framed oil paintings and floral designs to create a cosy, home-from-home feel.

The restaurant, Equilibrio, has a great reputation, and head chef Matias Bustos produces meals worthy of the excellent wines: fresh giant scallops from the Pacific, estate-made ewe’s cheese and ginger-marinated duck are the kind of dishes you will find on the menu, all served in a sumptuously decorated dining room.

During the day you can relax on one of the day-beds by the pool, with views over the sweeping valley and vineyard; go for a morning walk through the acres of farmland and vineyards; take a tour of the stunning wine-making facilities set into the hillside with a dramatic oval barrel cellar and pair of tasting rooms; saddle up for an enchanting horse ride. Venturing further afield, explore the delights and amazing seafood restaurants of nearby Valparaiso, or explore poet Pablo Neruda's house in nearby Isla Negra.

Location & Directions

San Antonio Valley

Matetic Vineyards is located in the Valparaíso Region, just 100 kms. away from Santiago and 70 kms. away from Valparaíso or Viña del Mar.

When to go

Santiago is a year-round destination but the most pleasant months to visit are October to April. Summer (November to April) is hot and there is lots of sunshine. Over winter (June to September) you’ll see the Andes wreathed in snow and can ski nearby, but the weather is chilly and rain can be an issue. Spring-like September is Chile's national independence month, and is full of activity.
