Clos de la Tech (Klō deh lah Tĕk) borrows its name from the great Burgundy vineyards that often use the word “Clos” (translation: enclosed area) in their names. Examples include Clos de Vougeot, Clos de Tart, Clos de Lambrays, etc. The reference comes from the rocks that were removed from the vineyards to form stone walls, enclosing the vineyards. The “Tech” part of the name is connected with the silicon chip on the neck of every Clos de la Tech bottle. We have always liked the practice of Chateau Mouton Rothschild, which puts a new piece of modern art on its bottle each year. We decided to put “chip art” on our bottle—in the case of the 2000, two real silicon memory chips with 107 million transistors on them embedded in sealing wax. Each year, we honor Cypress Semiconductor’s most successful chip that way.
