The winemaking tradition of the Carrau family begins in the famous region of Catalonia, Spain in 1752. Don Francisco Carrau Vehils, a fisherman from Vilassar de Mar, acquired the first family vineyard on April 2 of that year, the original document, wirtten by a Notary Public of Barcelona its kept in the museum of the family.
Since then, the Carrau family has been part of a small group of families around the world who have dedicated themselves, quietly and relentlessly, to the development of a tradition, currently representing ten generations of uninterrupted winemakers.
It is worth noting that the first medals were obtained in 1888 and 1892 by wines presented at international exhibitions in Barcelona and Chicago respectively. Established in Uruguay since 1930, the Carrau family is a pioneer in the development of quality wines.
Currently, Bodegas Carrau is a family business, where five brothers pay tribute to over 260 years of wisdom generated by their ancestors.
THE BRAND: Castel Pujol was launched in 1975 by the Carrau family after starting one of the first vineyard reconversions in the country. This brand with its Classic Line is considered the precursor of Uruguayan wines, both in the local market and for export.
THE BOTTLE: The bottle is what characterizes the Castel Pujol brand. In 1968 it was Juan Carrau Pujol who, inspired by the German wines of the region of Franconia and some Portuguese wines that use this style of bottle, decided to pack a young, aromatic and fruity rosé wine in a similar bottle, designed and produced In uruguay.
CERRO CHAPEU: In 1976, the vineyards began in Cerro Chapeu, a project of great ambition, for which vines are imported free of clonal selection viruses with revolutionary criteria for that time. The project in progress was declared of National Interest in November of 1977 since among other reasons the purpose was to export and make known in the international market the Uruguayan Wines.
The importance of this venture justifies that it is considered the starting point of a new stage in the National Vitiviniculture.
