With vineyards in Chile’s Maipo, Colchagua, and Maule Valleys, Vendaval crafts affordable wines that nonetheless speak of place. The entry-level wines come from a combination of sites with younger vines, the Reservas are from vines in the 35-40 year range, hand-picked fruit, house-cultured pieds de cuve, and natural malolactic fermentations.

He may be a native Burgundian, but Louis-Antoine Luyt has quickly become a seminal voice in the fight for independent, terroir-driven winemaking in Chile. In a country where wine production is run almost entirely by enormous industrial wineries, L.A has managed to source fruit and rent vines from independent farmers throughout the Maule Valley. Furthermore, his insistence on dry-farming,horse plowing, organic and native yeast/intervention free winemaking are welcome proof that wines outside of Europe can successfully be produced with this work philosophy.
