Ca­sonas in Chilean wine coun­try

Decanter - - WINERY HOTELS -

Tra­di­tion­ally the home of the owner, most his­toric winer­ies have a ca­sona (house) of­fer­ing a cosy stay with wine-paired evening meals. In the mid­dle of Santa Rita’s Maipo es­tate is its hand­some Casa Real Ho­tel (www. san­tarita.com/in­ter­na­tional/casa-real-ho­tel), with 16 rooms in a well-pre­served 18th cen­tury man­sion. Fur­ther south in Colch­agua, Casa Silva’s cen­tury- old fam­ily home in the vine­yard also moon­lights as a bou­tique ho­tel (www.casasilva.cl/ho­tel.html). And on the road be­tween Casablanca and San An­to­nio lies the 160ha bio­dy­namic es­tate of Matetic (www.matetic.com), where you can spend the night in one of eight well-ap­pointed rooms in the colo­nial-style ca­sona sur­rounded by hand­some gar­dens, with a sleek swim­ming pool.
