Wonderful vineyard, named the best winery in Chile 2017. Great place, friendly staff.

After our wine tour we asked for a campsite in the region and if we would buy some wine we could stay at their wine estate. No extra fees.

Perfect spot to spend a night. We did a wine tasting (para compartir/to share) for 14.000 pesos and ask if we could stay with the van. That was ok, stayed at the parking lot of the staff. Quiet, toilets in front of the building where you can taste wine.

The standard tour is called ”Horseback Carriage Tour“ on their website and include a guided tour through the wineyards as well as a technical tasting of five wines. The tour lasts usually about 1:00 to 1:30 and costs 16.000 CLP per person. The tour can also be booked in English. We really enjoyed our visit, the vineyard is beautiful. In addition, there is also a cozy café and a restaurant.

Afterwards, we asked if there is a place nearby where we could spend the night in our motorhome and they kindly offered us to stay on the large gravel parking area next to the crossing. Some cars passed by until midnight, but overall a rather quiet location.

Viu Manet was named best chilean winery in 2017. We did the tour and tasting, the wines in the shop go from 6000 up to 75000 peso.
They still let people who did the tour stay overnight on the employee parking and it's totally great. Because you would not expect it and it is such a wonderful and upscale place.

We did the last tour on a Friday and then asked in the store if we could spend the night. They agreed and after a bottle of Cabernet at the cafe we stayed at the employee parking.

Just confirming the previous positive comments. Tour is well worth the price and includes a professional tasting. We were able to visit without reservation and they do the tour also in English. Last tour of the day: 16h30. We asked before the tour about the possibility of staying for the night and they agreed. After the tour they indicated the specific parking lot (gate reopens at 6am, pedestrian door open all night) and (super clean, open all night) toilets nearby. The restaurant is open for lunch only, but the cafe serves light dishes from 9am till 8pm. Super lovely setting and good food/wine.

Asked if we could stay for the night on their parking lot. Was no problem at all. We had dinner and sampled some of their wine in the café. Before we left, we bought bottles for our way down south. Perfect price-quality in our opinion and super friendly staff! Will probably stay here again if we go back up north.

Fantastic restaurant! We eat there, drunk some vine and could camp in the parking-lot for the employees. All people were super friendly. The night guard also showed us, where we can get drinking water from a tab. They let 1 restroom open all night.

We are here because of the many helpful comments here. Thank you. And indeed, it is gorgeous. Calm, great wine, delicious restaurant and so nice horses with a great teacher. The ideal location for lifestyle overlanders who need a couple of free days from previous adventure.

Beautiful place as everyone says. Camping at gravel parking lot with access to restrooms 24 hours if taste and/or buy wine. Very nice owners and staff.

Amazing place. Beautiful winery, good food and good wine. We are a family of 7 and we visited two other wineries before Viu Manent and none let us stay. At Viu Manent they will treat you great. Open bathroom all night. Access to water and warmth from every employee. Highly recommended. They have a special parking for RVs, motor homes and overlanders.

We couldn't try the restaurant but the cafeteria (which also has wine) was pretty good.

By the way, if you want to meet other overlanders, this should be a perfect spot. We met amazing people :)

Just to confirm the other entries: nice tour (EBikes and horse carriage, depending on weather and internal road situation), good wine, good food, nice people; and you may stay overnight when you consume something. Recommend visit parts bundling to reduce total cost.

Beautiful vineyard. Very friendly staff. We arrived at the cafe at 1900ish thinking we might be too late but the cafe was open till 2000. We had a bottle of wine and cheese board and asked to camp for the night in our campervan. All ok as previously described. Shown to the car park which gets locked and also the bano for our use. Wine 7000 - 12000 per bottle... and it's very good. Worth the treat.

Paid 16k p.P. for the Winetasting Tour, including 5 different Wines. Bought some bottles of wine and had a very good medium rare Steak. We would recommend the wine and food. Instead of the Tour we would recommend to buy the wine directly ;-) Could stay here overnight and use the toilets and free WiFi. Very nice and quiet surrounding.

First place with our campervan. Nice place and very kind people. We bought two bottles of wine, not too expensive and good, and we could stay for the night. Toilets are available 24/24 and internet works well near the cafeteria :) we recommend !!

We arrived her around 4pm. We headed to the cafe and had a bottle of wine. After ordering another we asked about staying the night in our campervan. After asking her boss, our waitress showed us where to park. The cafe closed at 18:30, we walked back to the van and were greeted by a man who worked there. He chatted for a minute and then showed us where there was water and bathrooms, which were open 24/7. We even had "Ruzio" the dog as security for the night, he kept an eye on us. We would absolutely recommend staying here, the wine is great and so are the people.

We had a tour here (brief, not overly cheap, but interesting) and asked to stay the night in the carpark. We were allowed to use the toilets. They have WiFi which was turned off around 19:30 and back on early in the morning. Quiet and comfortable spot away from the main road. Staff started arriving from 8am.

We bought 2 bottles of wine and they were very happy for us to camp overnight in their car park. Note that they close at 6pm so you would need to arrive before then. Restaurant is open only at lunchtime, but there is a cafe open all day.
