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).
