More than 400 years of history
Located in the North Zone of Mexico, our winery today claims to be the oldest winery in America, no more and no less than 424 years, with a great history behind that has set its standards of quality and innovation throughout all these years.
Casa Madero has managed, by producing wines, to put Mexico on top at an international level. It is said fast, but it is not an easy task, especially having competitors like Spain, Italy or France, where the wineries are not scarce and the product is very famous.
On Las Parras, Coahuila from 1597We approximately came across a farm where some Spaniards enjoyed Mexico surrounded by springs and wildlife.
Years later, the property changed hands, until in 1893 it was founded ‘Hacienda Casa Madero ‘, thanks to Don Evaristo Madero. Evaristo, to whom we have to thank, carried out numerous renovations in order to found the vineyards and wineries that remain to this day.
Each of its vintages has a great quality and flavor, due to the great variety of grapes that are used in the careful elaboration of the labels. Each of them rest in American, French and Eastern European oak barrels. The Casa Madero wineries have adapted to new technologies, incorporating systems to control temperature, humidity and even lighting. They protect their wines from any factor that can modify their flavor. We can say that it is old but certainly not outdated.
Tradition, technology and affection, this is how the Casa Madero wineries are. Among its most outstanding bottles we find: Casa Madero Sauvignon Blanc, Casa Madero Cosecha Tardía, Chenin Blanc, Casa Grande Chardonnay and Casa Grande Shiraz. All of them with presence in more than 27 countries.
