ABOUT US

We started in 2005, having just arrived in the Maipo Andes Valley, Germán Lyon (winemaker from Viña Pérez Cruz) and Juan Enrique Gaete (his father-in-law) decided to plant the first Syrah vines. Then in 2009 we continued to plant Cabernet Sauvignon, thus completing our vineyard that surrounds our homes. With a natural and organic process, we decided in 2012 to bottle our first wines, with only 900 bottles between both strains. Due to the enthusiasm of friends and family, we ventured to produce more bottled wine reaching a current production of approximately 12.000 bottles between LOF Cabernet Sauvignon and LOF Syrah.

THE VINEYARD

LOF is the result of a small vineyard planted in the garden of our houses, located at the foot of the Andes mountain range, in the Maipo Andes Valley, Chile. In this place we coexist with the Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon plantations, two varieties well adapted to the stony soil conditions of this land. In addition, our vines are on a slight slope between 6º and 9º with a South West direction, generating a breeze that refreshes our grapes, and therefore, our wines.

GERMÁN LYON

VIÑATERO WINES LOF

For Germán wine is more than a job, it is his passion, he always remembers: “when I started working on what I like, I stopped working”.

He joined the Pérez Cruz vineyard team in 2001, when he was just 27 years old, being responsible for the technical aspects of the wines, where he has found and developed the style corresponding to the vineyard's own terroir.

Before arriving in Perez Cruz, Germán traveled to France with his wife, where he trained and it acquired the bases of its current oenological style, in which the characteristics of the place give the guidelines to give rise to its wines.

In 2012, in parallel to his work, Germán, together with his wife, daughters and in-laws, formed his own project called LOF. They live surrounded by a small Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah vineyard, in the Alto Jahuel sector, Maipo Valley, at the foot of the Andes mountain range.

THE BRAND

The word "LOF" means clan in the language of the Mapuches, a native people of southern Chile.

It is related in that the wine is formed through a family clan, who participate in the elaboration and history of the concoction.

Each member of the family forms an essential part of LOF, thus celebrating the union of everything in the same place where the vines are, in the Maipo Andes valley.

The Mapuches are people who make the land work with dedication and respect, and our wines reflect those characteristics, showing them a unique flavor that faithfully distinguishes our place of origin.

WINERY LOF

Our LOF winery is located next to our Syrah vineyard and the land where we live, in the Maipo Andes valley.

With a modern industrial design, the winery was completed in November 2020, after overcoming various difficulties such as the pandemic but successfully completing the project.

Not only is it the place where we make our wines, it also gives the possibility to those who wish to visit us and learn about our project, through previously coordinated tours.

By visiting our winery, you will have the opportunity to visit Francisca Gaete's ceramic workshop, where she exhibits and teaches her craft (instagram: @frangaete_ceramicas).

In addition, the LOF winery is an establishment that is rented to carry out other activities such as work days, weddings and other events with a limited capacity. These activities are coordinated in advance by contacting us directly through the website, in the "contact" section.
