La Casona Hotel & Matetic Vineyard is a boutique hotel and winery located in an estate within the Casablanca Valley, less than an hour from Santiago airport.
It is the only winery in the Casablanca Valley with a high-end boutique hotel attached. The hotel, called La Casona is a traditional 1900’s L-shaped building with terracotta tiles and large gardens filled with flowers and birds. There are just eight rooms, each one named after a different grape. The style is classic in fitting with the building. There is a long swimming pool, and three restaurants, one of which is just open to hotel guests.
The winery is further up the valley in which the estate sits, and is interesting in that it produces biodynamic wine (no chemicals or fertilizers). Family friendly, grape juice tasting is offered to children and there are bikes for all ages including those fitted with baby seats. Located between Santiago and the coast, Matetic is great for combining with a visit to Valparaiso, and can be visited just for the day, and booked on both full and half-board basis.
