The Cauquenina is a blend of of old vines from different vineyards, the blend will change every year depending on the season, but the focus will remain on old Carignan, Pais, Malbec and Carmenere. A full bodied wine with more than a little terroir in the flavour and style. Elegant, fresh, fruity, peppery, a beautifully crafted wine showing Chile is much more than just fruit bombs. Cauquenina means “girl from cauquenes”. This blend comes from non-irrigated old vines, planted on ancient red granite slopes.

Clos des Fous has 19 hectares of vineyards in total, which is supplemented by fruit from selected growers. Pedro Parra, sometimes described as a modern day Indiana Jones, had spent 12 years working in Burgundy before upping sticks to seek out the best terroirs Chile had to offer. His key aim was to move plantings away from the fertile plains and up the slopes into the Andean and Coastal ranges, where the rockier soils result in lower vine vigour and deeper roots, which he believes gives better balance and more finesse to the wines.
