Gabriel Edwards, Clos de Luz
"My story in wine starts when I was a child visiting wineries in the Almahue Valley, where they made wine from grapes planted in 1945 by my grandmother Luz. I’ve never forgotten those experiences and aromas. Later our family dedicated itself only to selling grapes to prestigious Chilean wineries, but in my mind I always had the idea of returning to the noble tradition of making wine and bringing our bottles to the world. I knew we had a unique treasure: Vineyards planted in 1945, un-grafted, non-clonal and organic.
"The recipe is very simple. We take care of the vineyards as our grandparents did 75 years ago, controlling the pasture with sheep and plowing the ground with horses. Our two varietal Massal 1945 wines, Carménère and Cabernet Sauvignon, are made from the grapes of these ancient vineyards and the vinification is as natural as possible, with native yeasts and aging in used barrels that allow the fruit aromas to persist. We invite you to try our two wines that truly represent the terroir of the Almahue Valley. Wines with identity and personality, that will leave no one unmoved."
