Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Clos Des Fous Cauquenina is a cement-aged red wine made by Clos Des Fous with several varieties like the Cariñena, País and Syrah  in the D.O. Guarilihue, in the Itata Valley (Chile). 
 
Clos Des Fous, which means “vineyard of fools”, is the project founded by Pedro Parra, François Massoc, Paco Leyton and Albert Cussen in 2008 with the aim of producing wines in various parts of Chile. They work in secluded wine areas that produce unique wines. The soils, altitudes and climates are all different, but the one characteristic they have in common is typicity. 
 
Clos Des Fous Cauquenina comes from vines planted in 1985 at an altitude of 490 feet. These vines are over 35 years old and are planted on old red granite slopes very close to the town of Cauquenes. The vines are cultivated using environmentally friendly agriculture and the harvest is carried out manually when the grapes reach optimum ripeness. 
 
In the winery, once the Clos Des Fous Cauquenina grapes have been selected, they spontaneously ferment with native yeasts and then the wine ages in cement tanks and stainless steel tanks on lees for 12 months. 
 
Named ‘Cauquenina’ which means ‘woman of Cauquenes’, Clos Des Fous Cauquenina is a tribute to the Guarilihue area. A sweet blend of old vines and the result of a long winemaking tradition.
