About us

Company details

In the 1910's, Isabelino Marichal, a descendant of immigrants from the Canary Islands, settled in Etchevarría, Canelones, Uruguay, started the first vineyards of the Tannat variety. In 1938, the family set up a small winery composed of underground tanks in a cave in order to achieve the best conditions in winemaking.

Today, the third and fourth generation have assumed the challenge of projecting the product of their land and their family tradition to the world, coping with the exigencies of nowadays’ technical advances in the field. Thus, they have succeeded in joining the emerging industry of winemaking in the countries of the New World of Wine.
