Native Burgundian Louis-Antoine Luyt has become a fervent advocate for independent, terroir-driven Chilean winemaking. He fell in love with the country after a 3 month trip to South America turned into a more permanent situation. After heading back to France and studying viticulture in Beaune, he returns to Chile at key moments of the season, to source dry-farmed vines plowed by horses that use organic methods in the vineyards.

Each Luyt Pipeño celebrates a different grower. “Coronel del Maule” highlights Sergio Perez, a farmer in his 80s with over 70 harvests under his belt. Dry-farmed 200-300 year old bush vines grown on iron-rich heavy clay soils with granite & quartz. The bunches are hand harvested and manually destemmed with traditional zaranda mats. Fermented spontaneously with indigenous yeasts in open wooden laggers. Briefly aged in pipas, and partially aged 2 months in stainless steel and clay tinajas. Bottled with no fining or filtering, and very little added sulfites.


Structured & grippy for a Pipeño, “Coronel del Maule” is smoky, with an agave-like vegetal quality. A brambly array of wild raspberries, strawberries, cranberry, flint, wood smoke and pepper. Despite the ample tannins, it’s fresh and chillable.

100% País. Organic.
