However, Villafane’s family has been in the wine business on the last 400 years. In 1611 Don Manuel Villafane arrived to Argentina from Spain as a soldier to fight the English pirates who attacked the Spanish vessels, later he re started as a farmer, and become in a pioneer of the viticulture in Argentina by being one of the first person planting vineyards on this lands. The objective was: to supply the Church’s priests and later on the Colonos, who came to the “New World“ in order to face new opportunities of development. The estate has some 40 hectares of vineyards in Maipo, Tupungato and Lujin de Cuyo area, with age from 15 to 88 years. Later he settled in South America as a farmer, and became a pioneer of winemaking in Argentina for being one of the first people to plant vines on that land. The objective at that time was to provide wine for the priests of the church and much later for the settlers, who came to the ‘New Word’ to take advantage of the new opportunities. The Don Manuel Villafañe winery was re-developed in the legacy of Don Manuel Villafane to deliver high quality wines to the world market.
