Casa Madero is the first official wine estate in Mexico, founded in 1597 by Don Lorenzo de Garcia in Coahuila in Valle de Parras. Originally named Hacienda de San Lorenzo, the name was eventually changed to Casa Madero in 1893 when the winery was purchased by Don Evaristo Madero. The region’s high altitude and relatively cool climate allows for well balanced grape ripening. In fact, the quality of the wines produced there was so good that for a time, King Felipe II put an end to all production out of jealousy and the need to promote Spanish wines. This prohibition, save for the production of sacramental wines (San Lorenzo had this dispensation), lasted until 1810 when Mexico gained independence from Spain. Eventually, Casa Madero grew to be one of the most important wine and brandy producers in all of Mexico. Wines are produced using traditional international grapes as single varietal releases.  Read less
