From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:

French vintner Alexandra Marnier Lapostolle has unveiled a state-of-the-art winery for her Clos Apalta premium wine in the sierra above her Casa Lapostolle vineyard, with a lodge and four 1,000-square-foot guest casitas arrayed on a forested hillside. Each is roofed in indigenous rauli wood, with 25-foot ceilings, beds dressed in Egyptian cotton and Cambodian silk, walk-in closets, vast bathrooms containing L'Occitane toiletries, a hot tub for two overlooking the Apalta Valley, and a terrace with more valley views. Guests can tour the vineyard on horseback or browse the nineteenth-century books in the library when not enjoying the mountain-backed scenery or eating baked oysters and local salmon, served on Limoges china in the stylish dining room. Staff well-versed in Chile's wine and food heritage provide unobtrusive service, while in-room massages, winery tours, and a fridge filled with Veuve Clicquot and Clos Apalta Premium Cuvée are included in the price.
