If you have one-day to visit the vineyards outside of Santiago, which one would you go to? Read on to see what our South America Program Director chose as her favorite:
I have been to many amazing vineyards in the Santiago area. However, I think that if I just had one day, and wanted to spend the whole day at one single vineyard, I would choose Matetic Vineyards for the overall experience and money-wise. Matetic is biodynamic. A step even further than organic, biodynamic means that the entire valley- all animals and plants- are organic and looked after in sync with the moon cycles. The wine is incredible, as is the food served for lunch (all sourced from the property).
This vineyard is located in the Casablanca Valley which is gorgeous with cool sea breezes that come through the region. Finally, this vineyard is owned by the same family that owns Patagonia Camp. Many of our travelers, who have been in Torres del Paine and stayed at Patagonia prior to coming to Santiago, will have tried Matetic Vineyards’ wine at Patagonia Camp already on their trip; it is a beautiful experience to then see where the wine that they drank all the way down in Patagonia is sourced.
