The Domaine
Clos des Fous is an exciting new project between four Chilean friends: Pedro Parra (the viticulturalist), François Massoc and Paco Leyton (the winemakers), and Albert Cussen, who looks after the business... ‘Fous‘ is the French word for ‘crazy men‘, a reference to what their peers described as their ‘craziness’ in crossing the traditional vineyard boundaries of Chile to source grapes from vineyards in the extreme conditions further south and east. Pedro, who has been described as a ‘modern-day Indiana Jones’ (Wine Spectator, 2009), is the person credited with discovering many of the top vineyard sites across Chile, as well as revolutionising the way in which iconic wineries such as Montes plant and manage their vineyards. The winery is based in Maule, to the South of the main vineyard area, where the ‘Fous‘ make top quality varietal wines from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Food Pairing
Crab, Lobster, or fish in rich sauces.
