What you will visit:

San Antonio, Chile

The center of the region's fishing industry and one of the busiest ports in the western coast of South America, San Antonio, is also a hub of casinos, clubs and skyscrapers as well as natural habitats. Beautiful beaches, stunning mountains, the El Yali National Reserve and the beautiful El Peral Lagoon are all part of the glorious natural gifts the region possesses. For those who love poetry, the home of Pablo Neruda, a Nobel Prize winning poet, still stands on inspirational Isla Negra, which houses a museum as well as his tomb! The San Antonio Valley is one of the youngest wine growing regions in Chile, and you will have an opportunity to stop and taste some of its popular varietals.

Matetic Vineyard

Nestled in El Rosario Valley, award-winning Matetic Vineyard is a family-owned, boutique winery that takes full advantage of its proximity to the ocean and Mediterranean climate with cool, foggy mornings and warm afternoons that-when combined with clay and sandy soils-help create the perfect conditions for wine growing of both spicy reds and delicate white varietals. The vineyards are certified organic by CERES GmbH and follow biodynamic practices as well. All vines are hand-picked, and wines are estate bottled. Behind-the-scenes tours of the vineyards, winery, and the bottling and labeling include a tasting of the host's exceptional wines, which have skyrocketed in popularity.

What you will see along the way:

Famed for its splendid scenery, the San Antonio wine region displays its agricultural perfection around every turn. Gaze out on lush vineyards, avocado plantations and mountain views all framed against endless blue skies.

Shopping:
Enjoy free time to peruse El Emporio, the wine shop and bar adjacent to the winery. Here, you'll find a wonderful variety of local products, woolen handicrafts made by artisans of the El Rosario Valley, and accessories for wine lovers.
