Most of the guest rooms at Casa Lapostolle's Clos Apalta Winery & Resort in Chile feature private terraces

From its 100 percent gravity-fed winemaking facilities to its nature-inspired elliptical shape, Lapostolle Winery is sure to impress both wine and architecture enthusiasts. This unique property was founded by Cyril de Bournet and Alexandra Marnier-Lapostolle, of France's Grand Marnier and Lapostolle families, and showcases a six-level winery, with four levels buried into the granite hillside for natural cooling temperatures for cellaring and aging. With just four wood casitas named after the grape varieties grown on the estate — Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Carmenere — on-site Lapostolle Residence offers exclusivity. While there is not a formal restaurant on the property, guests may enjoy Chilean specialties prepared with organic produce from the gardens. Along with wine tasting, viewing the hand harvesting process or horseback riding through the vineyards, activities include hiking local wilderness trails and in-suite massages.
