VIK CHILE – SANTA CRUZ, CHILE

Vik Chile reigns over the Millahue Valley, part of the famous Santa Cruz Wine Region. Designed to resemble a gold ring – Millahue translates as “place of gold” in the native Mapuche language – the hotel’s titanium roof glows forth from its privileged position above vine-lined hills and a large lagoon. 2014 saw the opening of the new 22-room hotel – more akin to modern art gallery than a classic hotel: no two pieces of furniture are the same, and the bedroom themes range from Hermes to hessian walls and hyperrealism. Days are spent wine tasting and exploring the vineyard on foot, bicycle or horseback. One thousand of the 11,000 acres are sewn with vines – demanding a workforce of 400 people since almost everything is done by hand – and the grapes take the form of five varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere, Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Franc.

“No one can pretend the hotel blends into the landscape; this is a commanding, non-conformist construction that demands attention. But the vineyard does not exist in some sort of grand isolation. It is the largest employer in the area and its kitchens are stocked with the freshest ingredients grown on its doorstep by small-scale farmers.”

Peter Browne, Senior Editor at Conde Nast Traveller
