First arrived in Chile in 1998, he started working in a restaurant, and later began to make wine.
After a few years splitting his time between France and Chile and gaining a diploma in oenology at Beaune, he founded his own wine company with the help of his cousin Matthieu de Genevraye, named Clos Ouvert.
After the 2010 earthquake, Clos Ouvert ceased to trade.
Louis Antoine continued the adventure by refocusing his aim towards the making of quality natural wines.
With his conviction, dedication and hard work he managed to impose himself as one of the main players in the Chilean natural wine industry.
His personality and way of being, made him a well-known pioneer.
Famous for having created and exported wines made with the Pais variety, he now diversifies his catalogue by offering Pipeno wines too.
