According to legend, Hernán Cortés and his soldiers quickly depleted the wine they brought with them from Spain celebrating the conquest of the Aztec Empire in 1521. Because of this, one of Cortés’ first acts as governor was to order the planting of grapevines throughout New Spain.

This area of Coahuila soon became a major wine producer due to its climate and good supplies of water. The vines that were established here were later exported to the Napa Valley in California and South America.

Graffiti Wine chose Antigua Hacienda de Perote to partner with –  one of the oldest wineries in the Americas, established  in the late 1500’s.

The winery is set high in the hills of Coahuila, in the estate of Perote. Its ancient cellars in Perote, are located in deep in the rugged hills, in the valley of Coahuila, considered one of the most beautiful areas in Northern Mexico.
