Family History

It was 1904 when Carlos Domingo Traversa and his parents arrived in Uruguay

The son of Italian immigrants, he spent his youth as a vineyard worker and in 1937, together with his wife, María Josefa Salort, he was able to purchase 5 hectares of land in Montevideo, in a region providing optimum conditions for growing vines.

In 1956, he founded the winery aided by his children Dante, Luis, and Armando. It is them and his grandchildren who proudly keep his dream alive today.

A member of the family supervises the maintenance of existing plantations, new plantings, the wine making, bottling and distribution processes, marketing, and customer service.

Because this is who we are, this is how we strive for quality, and these are the fruits of our labour.
