The story of the Matetic Winery begins in 1999 when the Matetic family decided to diversify their business ventures and enter the world of wine, confident in the virtues of the climate and soils in the Rosario Valley. With a firm conviction in the vital importance of maintaining a strong professional team to guide every step of the project to ensure that Matetic wines achieve the highest quality. The new Matetic vineyards winery, designed by the Vina Matetic team in cooperation with architect Lawrence Odfjell, is a state-of-the-art winemaking facility, constructed so as to complement its glorious setting. In other words, harmony has been reached between the winery's organic agricultural practices and the natural landscape of the valley. This winery, which has a 300 thousand-litre capacity, relies on a gravitational-flow design that optimizes management of the grapes brought in from the nearby vineyards.
