About the winery
Enjoy a fascinating private tour of the Viña Clos de Luz in the Valley of Almahue, conveys its philosophy and discovers its fresh and aromatic wines, among which are some of Chile's most ancient Carménère and probably of the world. As a principle, at Clos de Luz we make wines using the ancient production techniques of the Almahue Valley. We privilege the use of used barrels in order to keep the fruit over the aromas of wood; we harvest earlier and do not use industrial yeasts to ferment the wines, only native yeasts. This is how we obtain fresher, more gastronomic wines.

History & Geography
The Clos de Luz vineyard grows its grapes in the small Valley of Almahue (Cachapoal), where there is one of the oldest Carménère in Chile and probably in the world, planted by our grandmother Luz in 1945. The grapes are grown by hand, the vines are not grafted, not clonal, each plant is unique and different, giving richness and complexity to our wines. It is a natural winemaking process. Azuda waterwheels, created in 1930, allowed for development of viticulture in the Almahue Valley.
