Rosario Valley is a subdivision of San Antonio Valley. San Antonio is a new discovery of Chile´s wine regions with exciting potential. San Antonio, which includes the now-famous Leyda zone, is one of the one of Chile’s smallest viticultural areas. With vineyards as close as 4 km (2.5 mi) from the sea, it is also the most maritime region. For wine tourists, this wine region is yet to be developed. There isn´t a wine route but there are some interesting offers for those with an eye for the extraordinary.
The San Antonio Valley might just be a speck of a region between the Pacific Coast and the Maipo Valley, but it produces some of Chile’s best Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. Since 2002, this region is one of several recognized wine-producing areas with the official seal D.O. (Denominación de Origen).
You can live a unique experience through its Winemaker Experience Tour, an entertaining panorama in which participants can become winemakers for a day, using the same implements found in oenology laboratories, to create their own own wines.
On this excursion we will have the unique experience of discovering the essence of the Chilean countryside. We will visit the renowned Matetic Vineyard in the Rosario Valley, a subdivision of the San Antonio Valley. This completely enclosed valley, which is 9,000 hectares in length and perpendicular to the ocean, features extraordinary light and possesses the ideal climatic and topographic conditions for both red and white wines. The first 90 planted hectares are in all-organic soils. While visiting the estate we will have the exclusive opportunity to bike, trek or horseback through this vineyard surrounded by native trees, grapevines and local fauna. After the excursion and fresh air, we will then tour the Corralillo wine cellar full of splendor and aged barrels where we will enjoy a wine tasting with Chocolate shots, a choise of two of small chocolate cups filled either Syrah, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir or Gewurztraminer of the Corralillo or EQ line. The exciting day will be concluded with a spectacular lunch at the estates Equilibrio’s restaurant.
