Don Manuel Villafane

Don Manuel Villafañe winery is owned by Tomas Machado Villafañe and his family. The Villafañe family has been in the wine business for almost 400 years. Their ancestor Don Manuel Villafañe came to Argentina in 1611 from Spain as a soldier. He settled in South America as a farmer and became a pioneer of wine-making in Argentina as he was one of the first people to plant vines in the territory. Today the estate comprises 80 hectares and consists of two vineyards: Finca Don Manuel Estate (50 ha) and Finca la Hermita (30 ha), in Mendoza. www.dmvwines.com
