Matetic Vineyards

San Antonio, Chile

The story of the Matetic Winery began in 1999 when the Matetic family decided to diversify their business ventures and enter the world of wine. Confident in the virtues of the climate and soils in the Rosario Valley, they planted 222 acres of vineyards. The Matetic vineyards are located in the Rosario Valley, a subdivision of the San Antonio Valley. This completely enclosed valley is perpendicular to the ocean and features ideal climatic and topographic conditions for both red and white wines. The vineyards are certified organic by CERES GmbH and follow Biodynamic practices as well. All wines are hand-picked and estate bottled.

The EQ stands for Equilibrium...balance - the focus of this line is to balance of the vineyards, the winemaking and the environment.

Two distinct types of soil in the valley:

  • On the hillsides, the soil is red-brick in color, thin, with a superficial 30-40 cm layer of clay and decomposed granite below
  • On the flat sections of the valley, the soil composition is a deeper layer of granite, red clay on top, and over this, a layer of darker colored soil

Matetic Vineyards has been selected by Wine & Spirits as one of the 2012, 2011 and 2008 "Top 100 Wineries of the Year"
