In 2003 Mr. Mario Villareal bought a property in Guadalupe’s Valley in Baja California, in which he planned to build a house and plant vines, with the purpose of winemaking for himself and his family and friends.
In 2004 they started planning the plantation and that same year they planted five hectares of grapevines, which included: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz and Cabernet Franc. The plants were brought from a certified plant nursery in California, USA, and were grafted on the 1103p rootstock, which adapts the best to our zone. And although back then they had small amounts of water, it had a high quality for the crop.
In 2005 they planted three more hectares of grapevines of Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot, Primitivo and Cabernet Franc.
In 2006 they planted six and a half hectares of Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot, Primitivo and Cabernet Franc.
In 2007 they planted two and a half hectares of Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. And there’s another hectare of Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, and table wines like Red Globe, Princess, Autom Royal, Superior and Thompson.
In 2008 the varieties of Mourverde and Primitivo were replaced by others, like Tempranillo and Malbec.
