Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 2, 2013

We only had one night here and would have liked at least one more. The hacienda style property is located about 1 hour from Santiago on the grounds of a large winery. We had the opportunity to do a visit this the winery and see their modern production system for their wines. This winery won an award for their Shyra Wine which we did sample along with 3 others and all were excellent. At dinner we had full course meal served by James - he was one of the best waiters I have ever had serve a dinner. His attention to detail on the dinner was superb.
The rooms were warm and comfortable and the bedding was excellent. The décor is that Estancia style so you feel you are indeed staying on a ranch. The bathroom was roomy.
For you wine lovers - stay at least 2 nights here.

Room Tip: Perfect for wine lovers.

This place is lovely but because we went out of season it was almost completely empty which made it feel slightly dejected - we were rattling around. The welcome from the front desk was very good and the room was gorgeous and the wine trip fun. The young man that drove us to the winery was very pleasant and interesting. The low point was that when we were eating in the dining room the waiter basically asked for a tip - presumably he does this to many guests but they are too polite to comment. It was not brutally done and definitely done with a smile but it was very direct - "if you have enjoyed my service you can leave something ...". We did but it left a slightly sour taste and was slightly jarring in a place which it is not particularly cheap anyway. Otherwise all the staff were very good and our stay here provided an interesting detour.

We never expected such a high quality of haute cuisine in Casablanca valley . We drank corralillo Sauvignon blanc and Shiraz wine and were engulfed by the experience . The service was impeccable and the manager Macarena was an exemplary hostess. This place is an absolute MUST

We booked two nights at La Casona as part of a bigger 19-day excursion across central Chile and Argentina. This part of the trip was sandwiched between a few days in Viña del Mar/Valparaíso and Santiago. We mostly booked apartments in order to conserve money but as part of the relaxation we decided to splash on a couple of nights here. There is certainly a sticker shock when looking, but having now stayed it was well worth it. I don't normally give out five stars, but La Casona definitely merited it.

Admittedly, we were there the early part of the week in the shoulder season, so the detailed attention could be due in part to the fact that our first night there were only a couple of other rooms occupied and we were one of two rooms the second. Though, with only seven guest rooms, I doubt that anyone gets drowned out in the crowd. In fact, it was a bit odd having the place to ourselves (the guests in the other room were barely seen or heard from).

This place is NOT for you if you don't like:

- Excellent food prepared for you when you want it;

- Copious amounts of delicious wine. Our wine pairing lunch in which we sampled four of the winery's products effectively meant we were served a bottle of wine... each. Luckily, we had no plans for the afternoon, so leaving the dining room a bit tipsy had no ill effect;

- Close contact with wildlife, including birds and foxes;

- Complete relaxation, with available activities (such as horseback rides, bike rides and hikes through the valley or even a trip to the beach about 10 km away), but no rigid timetable;

- Lovely gardens and grounds to meander through and a gorgeous pool to lounge by.

If those sound good to you, this is your place. The food is superb (though it can be a touch on the salty side), the service is personalized and warm and the setting is absolutely incredible. Two days was not enough, though I don't think the wallet would be able to handle much more.

The only downside is, as someone else mentioned, you're surrounded by all this wonderful wine, but it's sold at effectively the same price that they retail for in Canada. While a lot of wine is included in the price of your stay and many might not opt for more, they could offer a discount at La Casona for those who wish to imbibe on a mid-afternoon bottle by the pool. After all, the wine is produced 10 km away yet costs the same as if I were buying it in Ontario, with all the duties and transportation costs involved.

Having flown in from Auckland NZ we were very jet lagged and found the mix of sun, food and wine delightfully relaxing.

Lovely courtyard effect and style belying the fact that it's all brand new.

It's principally a wedding venue it seems with huge car parking and some rooms for the bride and groom and wedding party but none the worse for that.

Lovely pool area with railway sleepers for the raised flower beds and sun loungers on which to crash out.

Bicycles available for hire. Lots of small earth tremours with one reasonably big one (2 on the Richter scale?)

Take the free tour of the Vina Matetic (owned by a Yugoslavic family, hence the name) that is like an underground grotto, all fung shui and live music played to the maturing wines in oak barrels.

Food was good but with very few people staying Between weddings we were rattling around the dining room. Wines outstanding, of course.

Room Tip: Get one of the end rooms facing the pool with better views.

Arriving at La Casona in the Matetic Vinyards, after 3 days in Valaraiso was a completely different experience fron the vibe and colour of the port. What an outstanding view. Vines and rolling hills surround the gracious hotel modelled on an old hacienda and spendid gardens. After a refreshing swim in the pool (bracing) we headed out for lunch at the restaurant - exceptional duck, seafood and great wine. Nestled on an island surounded by the pond and water features (all recycled water from the vinyard) we watched the geese and the world drift by. The service and food were impecable.
We were escorted on a private tour of the winey by 2 very knowledgeable female staff members (sorry have lost their names) who are assets to Matetic. We returned to the hotel in time for more gorgeous wine (the sauvingon blanc and syrah are to die for) and a visit from the resident grey fox nibbling grapes.
Dinner that evening at La Casona was a stand out with James (Bond) the Maitre D a wealth of knowledge and gracious hospitality. Our meal was a degustation menu with Matetic wines harmonising every bight. James also presided over our delicious breakfast the next morning.
Our rooms were exceptionaly comfortable and the beds are the best on which we have ever slept. Well done La Casona and Matetic!!
