About

Massoc Frères was founded in 2015 by the French brothers François and Jean-Paul Massoc, with the idea of reviving the heritage grapes of Chile’s remote Maule, Itata and Bio-Bio regions. In this new venture, the brothers work directly with small traditional vine growers in these areas, who have been tending the so-called ‘criolla’ grapes (first planted by the Spanish colonisers) for generations.

‘Wines with humanity’ is the adopted motto of the Massoc brothers, underlining the absolute value of human input in the process of wine production, from the growers in the vineyards to the winemakers in the cellar. Francois and Jean-Paul have developed strong relationships with local growers, offering their expertise in modern oenological practice while respecting local traditions. In this way, they are helping preserve ancestral vineyards and to further the cause of wine production in the south.

La Gringa Moscatel is made from 80-year-old vines in the Itata Valley. They yield small quantities of ultra-concentrated juice, translating into a wine full of aromas and flavours.

Chilean Wine

The quality and availability of Chilean wines have flourished in the last twenty years. While wine consumers worldwide enjoy the easy-drinking charm of Chile’s inexpensive fruity wines, Chile’s wine producers have higher aspirations too, to make stylish, complex wines expressive of their unique origins, wines with a tangible ‘sense of place’, a notion the Europeans call terroir.
