Winery

Matetic vineyards embody the pioneering spirit and vision of modern Chilean winemaking. This biodynamic project was founded in 1999 by the Matetic family, originally Croatian settlers who arrived in Chilean Patagonia in 1892. Having established themselves as farmers with extensive landholdings, the fourth generation of the family turned their attention to grapes. Confident of the attributes of the climate and soils in the coastal El Rosario Valley of San Antonio, they planted 120 hectares of vines and now farm 160 hectares of coastal biodynamic vineyard. The Corallilo range forms the entry level: expressive, fruit-forward wines that showcase the varietal purity possible in this coastal terroir. Stepping up a level, “EQ” stands for equilibrium, the Spanish for balance; these wines are elegant, complex, and multi-layered and will age gracefully over many years. The flagship Matetic Syrah comes from the oldest vines on the estate and represents the pinnacle of the family’s achievement – indeed, arguably the peak for this great variety in Chile.

We are a boutique biodynamic winery located in the Rosario Valley, between the coastal valleys of Casablanca and San Antonio. Our vineyards were planted in 1999 on the hillsides of this privileged area, making us among the pioneers of cool-climate Syrah production in Chile.
