LA Luyt Pipeno Red


First arrived in Chile in 1998, Louis Antoine started working in a restaurant, and later began to make wine. After a few years splitting his time between France and Chile and gaining a diploma in oenology at Beaune, he founded his own wine company with the help of his cousin Matthieu de Genevraye, named Clos Ouvert. After the 2010 earthquake, Clos Ouvert ceased to trade. Louis-Antoine continued the adventure by refocusing his aim towards the making of quality natural wines. With his conviction, dedication and hard work he managed to impulse a renewal of the pais grape and to give value to small scale traditional chilean wines. His personality, his way of being, and his radical choices made him a well-known pioneer of chilean alternative and ecological winemaking.

“The País for this project comes from 200+ year old vines planted in Maule. The iron rich clays are punctuated by quarts and granite. The grapes are hand destemmed using the traditional zaranda method. The wine ferments in open top lagares for two weeks before being pressed into traditional pipas for a brief élevage. The wine is then settled in tank before bottling – sometimes with minor filtration and a pinch of SO2.” – Juice Imports
