CLOS DES FOUS CHARDONNAY LOCURA 1 Image

Clos des Fous is a story about four wine friends – four crazy guys who have chosen to ignore the “experts” about where to plant vineyards and to trust their own instincts. The team is viticulturist Paco Leyton, winemaker Francois Massoc, terroir hunter Pedro Parra, and “bringer of wisdom” Albert Cussen. Clos des Fous, at its heart, is a project dedicated to finding extreme terroirs in Chile and crafting unique wines that speak of place.

This wine is a blend of two different terroirs, both in the Alto Cachapoal D.O. – the coldest part of Cachapoal. The first terroir has a colluvial soil made up of sandy clay that is full of volcanic rocks and pebbles that allows a very deep root development. The second terroir comes from our Grillos Cantores Vineyard, entirely alluvial from the Cachapoal River. The soil is a gravelly mix with limestone which also allows for very deep root development. We make this wine in stainless steel to preserve the vibrance and minerality of the terroir.
