The production is divided into four types
The line Louis Antoine Luyt gives a nod towards the Chilean wine culture.
They are all varietals and the labels are inspired by a renowned advertisement used on Santiago’s buses.
Pais et Huasa
This line is elaborated from the variety Pais, also called Mision, Listan Prieto.
This variety brought by the missionaries and was set aside from
the Chilean wine industry, until Louis Antoine Luyt showed that
he could make fine wines with them and ones of high quality.
The Pipeno wines are elaborated in the Chilean
most traditional way. That is
to say the harvests are trampled and removed from their clusters manually over a “zaranda” and then vinificated in a lagar (opened tank). The juice is then kept in “pipas”, hence the name of Pipeño.The wine is only made from the juice of this maceration.
Besides the Pipeños produced by himself, Louis-Antoine developed activities with local growers as producers of pipeños.
