  • Other notes: 

    • Much of the land under vine in this estate was originally planted in 1791 just 4 years after the US signed its constitution.  

    • After having been run by Laura Zamora for nearly 2 decades, winemaking at this estate was taken over by Cristina Pino in 2019 with the intention of assembling the team necessary to use this wineries vast resources to make world class wine for Mexico. Reduced yields, tighter selection, use of low intervention techniques and a migration towards fully organic farming are just a few of the measures Cristina started to implement as soon as she took the reins in late 2018. Anyone who as followed the progress of these wines since then will be delighted to see the increase in quality. 

    • Único, the winery's flagship wine, is made from a single vineyard of vines 100 to 150 years old. Beautifully layered wine worldly class, it is capable of aging for two decades or more.
