The idyllic Matetic vineyard is located in a luxuriant valley, where the refreshing microclimate supports the cultivation of Pinot Noir and Shiraz grapes. The accommodation is in 'La Casona', which is a renovated 100-year old estancia set around a central courtyard with pink adobe walls and colonnaded walkways. Surrounding the house are beautiful gardens with formal topiary and an outdoor lap pool for which it’ll be too chilly, although you can simply relax and enjoy views to the vineyards.
There are just seven guest rooms, each named after red and white grapes used by the estate in their wines and each has a small terrace. The rooms come complete with L'Occitaine products, a safe, television and comfortable queen or kingsize doubles or twin beds. The suite is a larger room with the original tiled whirlpool bath. They are all decorated in a simple but elegant style.
There is a restaurant - El Equilibre - specialises in gourmet Chilean cuisine with menus prepared to complement the vineyard's excellent wines. Other facilities include a spacious living room, pool table and bar. Wine tasting and a tour of the winery are included in your stay.
All bookings include a visit to the bodega (cellar) six miles away with a tour and tasting and can include a visit to their cheese factory too. There are options for walking, riding and biking in the vast grounds to enjoy the views and the local wildlife.
