Photos of; Matetic’s restaurant which is about 9km from their Viña. It’s also a great hotel we stayed. Our tasting at Matetic with Sofia’s full attention on our host Josefina describing the wine and the process of how it’s made. Stainless steel 225 or 300 liter barrels to ferment a portion of their Sauvignon Blanc to be blended with the other parts...some in used oak barrel & concrete egg. I’ve not seen these used anywhere else until visiting Chile. The vista as you drive up towards their property.

I did not take notes as these wines were served over a casual lunch with the Tikal staff. This sparkling is made under Alma Negra label but made by the Tikal staff.
