Only one hour west of Santiago, and a few miles from Coastal Valparaíso, Casablanca Valley stands out by its proximity to the ocean, and the typicity of its terroir. Visit two producers of outstanding wines: Bodegas RE and Matetic
Drive west for about an hour into Casablanca Valley. The valley benefits from a cool ocean breeze that makes this terroir a perfect one for some of the best Sauvignon Blancs and Chardonnays produced in the country.
Our first morning visit is to award-winning winery Bodegas RE, a small estate where the Morande family, nine generations into wine, applies a concept of ancestry into the elaboration of premium wines, to the extent of producing some of their wines in the family's old jars.
Later on, we make our way to Matetic Winery, and taste their premium wines over lunch, with the Hacienda's beautiful gardens as backdrop. Afternoon visit of the state-of-the-art, modern winery.
*This day at Casablanca valley can also be coordinated from the coastal cities Valparaíso or Viña del Mar.
