Correas family arrived in Mendoza at the end of the 17th Century, but their history as winemakers began in 1860 with Don Segundo Correas, who planted noble grapes of French origin and built the first winery in Medrano. In the 30s, Julián Correas founded “El Ciprés” winery, famous for its Cabernet Sauvignon. Luis Segundo Correas, third genera- tion member of this traditional family, continued and increased what had been made by his predecessors. In 1972, he redesigned the present winery on Tres Acequias Street, with extra capacity in relation to the vineyards growth. This allowed the company to produce wine exclusively from its own grapes, a tradition maintained today by his sons, Luis, Julián, Francisco and Diego.
The family owns 400 hectares of vineyards in Medrano, Maipú and Luján de Cuyo and the vineyards are watered entirely by thaw water from the Andes Mountains.
Our vineyards are over 85 year-old and are taken care personally by one of the owners the engineer agronomist Julian Correas who controls the production to ensure quality.
