About La Casona at Matetic
La Casona at Matetic stands in a completely enclosed valley, which is 9,000 hectares in length and runs parallel to the ocean. It is known for its extraordinary light and possesses the ideal climatic and topographic conditions for both red and white wines.
The Viña Matetic Guesthouse is a century-old estancia set among wild gardens. The winery itself is one of the most architecturally avant-garde in Chile - a stunning hillside facility with a theatrical oval barrel cellar and a pair of grand tasting rooms with a waterfall.
The guesthouse is colonial in construction, in keeping with the traditions of the area. The rooms were remodelled and decorated in 2004 by the famed architect and designer Max Cummins. All are furnished with regal four-poster beds and wingback chairs, thick damask curtains, and lots of florals and stripes - creating a cosy, homely feel.
The hotel's extensive grounds are perfect for a relaxed stroll, or exploration further afield on horse-back or by mountain bike.
