William Cole Vineyards produces some of the finest wines in Chile. The valley’s flat surface and rich soil – in combination with the Pacific waters from the nearby coast – creates an ideal terrain for growing grapes, so the winery’s amazing portfolio of top-notch Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc should come as no surprise.
A guided tour of this winery is sure to be a special treat for history buffs too as its design honours Native American buildings and old Chilean missions, and your guide will be happy to share the amazing secrets of the winery and the land it occupies. Wine tastings are a must, and guests enjoy sneak peeks at the vineyards, winery, bottling lines and cellar before an indulgent tasting of the best of the William Cole wine portfolio!

Matetic Vineyards was the first winery in Chile to practice biodynamic methods and organic agriculture in order to produce wine in an environmentally respectful way, and this approach has proven the potential of coastal Chile, which typically has a cooler climate. For this alone, Matetic gets a mention in our best wineries in Casablanca Valley list.
Wine holidays to Matetic Vineyards’ gloriously modern winery allow visitors to learn about the different phases of biodynamic winemaking while sipping delectable, award-winning wines and taking in the stunning views of the surrounding Rosario Valley. If you’re feeling peckish, there is a wonderful onsite restaurant specialising in local Chilean cuisine … and if this indulgent experience makes you want to linger a while longer, guests can choose to spend a night or two at La Casona, the property’s intimate boutique hotel.

Kingston Family Vineyards is an award-winning boutique winery located on the Kingston family farm in the heart of the Casablanca Valley. The farm was formerly a frontier for gold mining before the family discovered they could strike gold (so to speak) in the wine industry. Unlike the wineries on the coast of Casablanca Valley, which tend to focus primarily on white wines, Kingston Family Vineyards has started producing cool-climate red wines. Their winemaking technique reflects that of a small family-owned business, as they handcraft their Pinot Noir, Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc in small batches.
Indulge in an immersive wine tasting experience on the winery’s beautiful terrace overlooking the panoramic vistas of the Casablanca Valley, with scheduled wine tours running daily at 10am, 12pm, 2pm, or 4pm. Private events can also be catered for here – the perfect place for a party!
