Agricola Grillos Cantores is a single vineyard, side project started in 2019 by Paco Leyton of Clos des Fous. The vision began in Chile's southern coastal Andean range–Itata when Paco met the 70 something year-old José Neira and visited the vineyard planted by his grandfather over 150 years ago.
Paco fell in love with the head-trained, bush vines comprised of Corinto (aka Chasselas), located in the La Leonora subregion of Guarilihue. The single vineyard (1.5 hectares) sits on a steep slope of white silt, sand, and granitic soil, littered with mica and a high concentration of quartz. The vines are non-irrigated, plowed by hand, and naturally farmed. The steep terrain enables the vines to grow deep roots and produce complex, balanced wines that are vertical and mineral-driven.
Paco believes that Corinto is a great terroir translator because of its dry, neutral typicity and strives to produce clean and pure wines. He also produces a Corinto with Flor and eventually, he hopes to take advantage of of the red grapes on the property–Pais, Cinsault, and Aramon to create a blend in the future.
