Clos de Luz Winery, One of the Oldest Carmenere Vineyards in Chile

Clos de Luz Winery is situated in Chachapoal, Chile, and is one of the oldest Carmenere vineyards in Chile. The winemakers at Clos de Luz have decided to innovate based on the existing history and traditions of the Almahue Valley. The winery is a piece of history and a taste of days gone by, where the owners strive to produce fresh wine with natural acidity and lower levels of alcohol. In achieving this, no additions are used to standardize the wine’s flavor but rather have a more fresh and non-oaked aroma.

 

Rich and Unique Wines at the Winery

Clos de Luz Winery trusts in the diversity of the plants in their vineyards, using Massal Selection. The opposite of cloning, every plant is considered unique and diverse and adds to the wine’s richness and complexity.

Clos de Luz Winery is a 750-acre wine-producing estate which builds on the winemaking techniques brought about since Colonial times.

It is home to 1930 Azuda water wheels, which allowed for the development of viticulture in the area. The area is known for the production of high-quality Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, and Grenache.

 

Vineyards and Winemaking Techniques

The vineyards of the estate are maintained using natural viticulture techniques with manual labor and harvesting processes. The vines of the vineyards are ungrafted, and grapes are selected from the old Massal selection vineyards. In winter, herb cover crops such as oats are used to de-compact the soil, fix nitrogen levels, de-compact the soil, and control soil pests.
