Jorge Matetic Hartard, President of  Matetic Vineyards

MATETIC FAMILY

The family arrived in Chilean Patagonia back in 1892, originally from Rijeka (nowadays in Croatia). In 1999 the fourth generation of the family, after a detailed study of the terroir conditions, and absolutely confident about the great potential of El Rosario Valley, planted vineyards on the slopes of this protected environment within the San Antonio appellation. Thus, becoming pioneers in cool-climate Syrah in Chile.

OUR PILLARS

OUR CELLAR

Our modern wine cellar, designed by the team of Matetic Vineyards in conjunction with the architect Laurence Odfjell, was built in 2004; Taking into account every detail of the winemaking process and the care of the environment. It harmonizes the organic and biodynamic agriculture practiced in the vineyard and the natural landscape of the valley, merging with its surroundings.

With a capacity of 600 thousand liters, it has a design of gravitational flow, which allows to achieve a delicate handling of the grape at every stage of the process, from reception and selection to fermentation and subsequent storage in barrels. The winery has 3 underground rooms for the storage of almost 1,800 barrels, counting on the optimal conditions of humidity and temperature, where our wines are raised between 12 and 22 months in French barrels.

La cuarta generación de la familia comienza la plantación de 33 hectáreas de viñedos en "El Rosario", dentro del valle de San Antonio

Don Jorge Matetic Celtinja llega a Punta Arenas, proveniente del antiguo puerto de Fiume en el Imperio Austro-Húngaro, hoy Rijeka en Croacia

Gracias a nuestro mentor Alan York y al énologo Rodrigo Soto, comienza el manejo orgánico del viñedo

Nace el primer Syrah de clima frio en Chile: EQ Syrah

Finaliza la construcción de la bodega de vinos, disñeada por Laurence Odfjell y Rodrigo Ferrer. El moderno edificio cuenta con un diseño de flujo gravitacional y amigable con el medio ambiente

La viña consigue la certificación orgánica. Comeinza el trabajo con agricultura biodinámica. Se inaugura nuestro hotel boutique "La Casona".
