EQ Pinot Noir comes from six separate areas within the Rosario district of San Antonio, where Materic's vineyards are located. Cold maceration (for aroma and flavor extraction) took place over five to seven days, followed by fermentation with selected yeasts, alternating different pump-over and throdding techniques to achieve the correct extraction of color, aroma and taste. Finally, the wines were placed in French oak barrels where malolactic fermentation took place over 10 months, followed by a soft clarification with egg whites before bottling.

Named in the Top 100 Wineries of the Year, Wine & Spirits in 2012, 2011 & 2008. The story of the Matetic Winery began in 1999. Confident in the virtues of the climate and soils in the Rosario Valley, they planted 222 acres of vineyards. The Matetic vineyards are located in the Rosario Valley, a subdivision of the San Antonio Valley. This completely enclosed valley is perpendicular to the ocean and features ideal climatic and topographic conditions for both red and white wines. The vineyards are certified organic by CERES GmbH and follow Biodynamic practices as well. All wines are hand-picked and estate bottled.
