The Carcar family began to make wine in 1723. It was then that they signed a pact with the land. Fourteen generations later the Carcar family continues to care for the land while guided by the same values established by our ancestors.
Winemaking allowed their family to prosper. In 1840, the King of Spain, Fernando VIII, appointed Manuel Baltasar Carcar to be a royal notary. Meanwhile, the family continued to work and develop the vineyards.
It is their conviction that wine is, in fact, “made” in the vineyard by the application of effort and knowledge acquired over many generations. This explains why their wines possess such character. Above all else, they respect the land and the quality of the grapes as they consider these to be key to being able to offer unique wines.
