The history of the winery begins in 1798 when Don Juan de Dios Correas planted the first vines located at the foothills of the cordillera of the Andes mountains. From the middle of the nineteenth century, and for more than 100 years, the Correas family sold their grapes and wines to other producers in the region. However, in 1974, it was Don Edmundo Navarro Correas, descendent of the family Correas, who decided to produce wines under his own name.
It was then that they began creating red wines, whites and sparkling wines through artisanal methods. Since 1996, they have belonged to the Diageo group, a principle company of Premium beverages in the world. The brand is one of the leaders in exportation and in national markets. Today, the company has two modern winery locations: Cava Godoy Cruz and Finca Agrelo. The Cava Godoy Cruz (Godoy Cruz cellar) is open to tourists. It is a building based on minimalist architecture, using indigenous materials for structure and natural light. This location features a visitor center of 800 square meters, a wine bar, two tasting rooms, an exposition room and a reception area.
In contrast, the winery Finca Agrelo is located in one of the most exclusive winemaking regions of the country, focusing on producing top-quality wines. The design of this winery is highly based on a moral responsibility to the environment: the use of totally recycled water, reduction of waste, and minimal energy use.MENDOZA WINERIES
