La Casona, Matetic Vineyards, Rosario Valley

There is nothing quite like your first sip of a newly opened, perfectly chilled bottle of Chilean white wine, as you watch the evening sun set over the vineyard where your wine was created.

Make La Casona part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Chile and your appreciation of the wine will go even further than the depth of your palate. You will be able to tour and taste some of the region’s most renowned wines, whilst discovering the secrets behind the entire wine-making process. From the creation of the organic vineyards and the establishment of a style of wine, to the intricacies of production, bottling and storage. And, of course, the tasting; an experience for the palate that stretches from Sauvignon Blanc to Syrah.
