Viñas de la ERRE
The Rocha Family acquired the Hacienda San Martín Caballero in Valle de Guadalupe in 1985, never imagining that the region would one day become the heart of Mexico’s wine country.
Established in 2010 by husband and wife Claudio and Nelly Rocha, Viñas de la ERRE is the result of hard work, dedication, and an extraordinary vision. The Rocha Family acquired the Hacienda San Martín Caballero in Valle de Guadalupe in Baja California, Mexico in 1985, never imagining that the region would one day become the heart of Mexico’s wine country.
With the help of family friends and their eldest son, Ernesto Rocha (winemaker for Viñas de la ERRE), the couple established Viñas de la ERRE as a well- respected boutique winery that is now known for their award-winning reserve wines. A visit to Viñas de la ERRE promises to be an unparalleled wine experience, as the Rocha family shares their love of family and the beautiful Valle de Guadalupe.
We hope that our International Wine Club members enjoy this month's selection and are able to appreciate the extensive history and culture that has been put into producing it! Cheers!
