The history of the viticulture in Dolores Hidalgo, Guanajuato:

At the beginning of the XIX century a group of soldiers were sent by the Guanajuato government council, specifically to Dolores Hidalgo with the order to destroy the existing vines. In those times the authorities did not realize the consequences of their actions, they just increased the anger against authorities that had already been generalized. All the vines of the Church of Dolores were burned and destroyed before the eyes of Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla (Father of the independence of Mexico) and the dissatisfied people, who weeks before had ignored the order from the Royal Audience to destroy the vines. Since Hidalgo was in charge of the parroquia, he taught the people different industrial activities that would help them generate an income. One of those activities was the planting of the vineyards and processing of the grape.


The first vines were planted in 1995, the principal varieties Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Semillon. The first vinification was done in 2005, being the first commercial production until 2008, with the launch of "Cuna de Tierra". All the wine production has been done under the supervision of Juan Manchon, enologist of the region, who studied in Valencia (Spain).

  • Cradle of Independence because it is in Dolores Hidalgo where part of the Independence of Mexico is gestured. Personalized attention of Ramón Vélez, the Winemaker, the Agronomist and all the staff who work there. From the driver of the tractor that welcomes you at the entrance, it takes you to the tour through the vineyards, to leave you in the winery and dining room, all its quality wines, my favorites: Nebbiolo, Syrah and the spectacular Pago de Vega de Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. In new French oak barrels, this barrels that they use there had not seen them in any winery in the world, they are square of different capacities. We had to bring the Syrah grape to detachment, we freshly disapproved we tasted the must and we all coincide with the memory of very sweet tamarind notes. From there we go to the dining room where the Chef prepared us some food that matched the wines of Cuna Tierra. That's where I met the weeping Mistela of Earth. Thank you to all the staff who work there to make us live that experience. Vega Manchón Wineries
