Rayuela Wine & Grill
Very charming and welcoming with a panoramic view of the hills of Apalta, the recently opened Rayuela is Viña Viu Manent’s new restaurant in the Colchagua Valley.
Chef Christian Adrian mans the kitchen and offers a simple menu of grilled foods such as meats and fish that guests combine with a variety of side dishes of their choosing.
Another menu option is the “Buenas Yuntas” (Good Pairings) that suggests the best wines to pair with each dish, such as the grilled salmon with Chilean-style creamed corn served with Viu Manent Reserva Chardonnay, lamb chops and roasted vegetables with Secreto Malbec, or the Chilean classic “Poor Man’s Steak” with Cabernet. Another of Rayuela’s wonderful pairings is fresh oysters on the half shell with Viu Manent Secreto Sauvignon Blanc.
In addition to the new Rayuela Restaurant, visitors can stop in to the La Llavería Visitors’ Center, which offers tours, tastings, special programs, horseback riding, an equestrian club, a wine shop, and a café, all of which make Viu Manent a “must” when visiting the best the Colchagua Valley has to offer.
