ABOUT THE PRODUCER: 
“In 1680 Margarita Ysern, from a vine-growers family, got married with Jaime Carrau, from a fishermen family of Vilassar de Mar. This union was the beginning of our family winemaking tradition in Catalunya.
Cerro Chapeu is born from the tradition that our family carries in their veines: dedicated to wine for more than ten generations, started in Catalonia by Francisco Carrau Vehils in 1752

We are dedicated to the art of winemaking in a unique biome, our vineyards are located in the red, deep and sand soils of Cerro Chapeu, on the border line between Uruguay and Brazil. Our philosophy is the low in-put winemaking in balance with the environment. The winery built in 1997 within a hill is based on gravity, which together with innovative oenological techniques and the family experience that characterizes us, result in unique wines.”

Francisco Carrau Bonomi, Owner & Winemaker:
Doctor in Chemistry in yeasts and wine aromas. From 1981 he played the role of winemaker and participated in the management of Bodegas Carrau. In the 90s he promoted the research and development area of the company, whose innovations allowed to open new export markets such as the United States, thus contributing to the development of the prestige of Uruguayan wine in the world. He is currently closely advising the Cerro Chapeu project.
