Experience the life of a small Chilean winery during a stay at La Casona Metetic, nestled into the beautiful grounds of the Matetic Winery. Find rest in the guesthouse, a century-old estancia located on the property and surrounded by lush gardens. Ample opportunities exist to explore and experience the vineyards operations, as well as numerous opportunities to explore the valley on foot, horseback or bicycle. Sample the wares at the onsite cheese factory, produced by the Matetic family from the sheep's milk produced on the property.
La Casona is a colonial construction representative of the Chilean countryside, with more than 100 years of history. The historic estancia was fully remodeled and delicately decorated in 2004 by the famed architect and designer Max Cummins.
Guests will enjoy lingering in the cozy reading living room with its pool table, chimney and honesty bar. Guests may also choose to relax out at the spectacular pool surrounded by beautiful gardens, enjoying the lovely sights to the surrounding vineyards.
Elegant wood paneling and damask wallpaper line the walls of the sophisticated dining room, where guests will enjoy the gourmet cuisine with exquisite wine pairings with each meal.
La Casona has seven large rooms, all of them with private bathroom and fitted with a king size bed or two single beds, central heating, private terrace and an elegant and sophisticate decoration. Four poster beds and wingback chairs lends a rugged sophistication to the environs of La Casona.
Matetic Vineyards is located in the Valparaíso Region, just 100 kms. away from Santiago and 40 kms. away from Valparaíso or Viña del Mar. Around the San Antonio Valley there are several places of touristic and gastronomical interest.
The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
