History:
Casa Madero owns and operates the oldest vineyards and winery in the entire American Continent Barely 73 years after Hernan Cortez conquered the Aztecs, Don Lorenzo Garcia explored the north of Mexico, and in the midst of a desert, came across a veritable oasis with water springs and abundance of native vines, from whose grapes the first American wine was ever produced. The place was called 'Santa Maria de las Parras', or Holy Mary of the Vines, as parras is Spanish for vines. After establishing a vineyard he received in 1597 a Royal Land Grant, with the rights to the vineyard and to the production of wines and brandies, thus giving birth to the San Lorenzo vineyards and winery, today´s Casa Madero.
The tradition began in the year 1549 when Spanish priests and conquistadores came across the gifted valley that is now known as the 'Parras Valley', where they found abundant spring water and a
profusion of native vines, this discovery prompted them to establish the Mission of Santa María de las Parras or Holy Mary of the Vines, as parras is the Spanish world for vines. From these native
grapes they produced the first American wine, and in a few years the wonderful vines, wines and brandies of the Valley of Parras, were being 'exported' to the rest of American Continent.
On the 19th August 1597, Don Lorenzo García took formal possession of a land grant issued to him by Philip II King of Spain, with the express purpose of establishing a vineyard to produce wine and
brandy, thus asserting his claim and peaceful use of the land he had settled earlierwhere he had already established the vineyard and winery, thus giving formal birth to the Hacienda de San
Lorenzo.
The soil and climate of the high elevation - 1,500 meters above sea level - of the Parras Valley have produced fine grapes from time immemorial. With the years the fame of the Parras wines grew so
much that in 1699 the King of Spain, alarmed by the competition prohibited, with the exception of wines for the Church, the cultivation of vinyards and the production of wine in the American
Colonies, a difficult period when San Lorenzo survived by producing mainly for the Curia. This prohibition lasted until Mexico´s independence from Spain in 1810.
The estate was purchased from its French owners in Paris in 1893 by Don Evaristo Madero, scion in Mexico of the Madero family and grandfather of President Madero who in 1910 set the foundations of modern Mexico.
In Europe Don Evaristo also contracted the services of the best people in their respective fields, viticulturist from Italy and Spain and oenoligsts from France, he also brought to the Parras
Valley new vine Products: and modern equipment, from grape presses, Cognac or Charentais pot stills or alembiques and the most up to date bottling machines. With the new personnel, grape products and equipment the San Lorenzo winery of Casa Madero grew and progressed to become Mexico´s premiere wine and brandy producer.

History:
In 1945 at 16 years of age, Mr. Jose Villanueva, a young man born in a small town in Tocumbo, Mich. (Mexico) had a golden opportunity. He became partner of Mr. Ramon Gutierrez, a Spanish gentleman, in a small liquor factory. Mr. Gutierrez, who was 84 years old, proposed that each invest $ 600.00 USD (60,000 Mexican pesos) to begin their dream of a liquor business.
In 1950 Mr. Villanueva decided to get married. One year later, he and his lovely bride decide to purchase the remaining 50% of the liquor factory, which at that time was named 'Destiladora
Veracruzana'. In that year, while searching for distributors to meet the demand of their products, they decide to establish a factory of cold blend, naming it 'Industrial Licorera La Lupe'. They
had excellence sales that year, and because the demand increased too much, they relocated the factory and named it ' Licores Veracruz, S.A. de C.V.'.
