A family with tradition of wineries

History

 

Molina’s family is strongly related to the wine production in America. We can find its origin in XII century, when Castilla and Aragón kingdom accepted Manrique Perez de Lara to become Señor of Molina.

 

The first Molina to step in American ground was Jeronimo Molina y Herrera, who arrived to Peru in 1553 and afterwards, to Chile. Later in 1650, general Luis de Molina y Vasconcelos settles in Mendoza, where he and his descendants started developing  the wine activities.

 

Casa Molina

 

Casa Museo Molina Pico was built in 1761. Originally conceived as farm cottage, Casa Molina is currently located within the urban district of Guaymallén, Mendoza.

Though at  the beginning it belonged to Sotomayor family, it was vinculated historically to Pedro Molina, a well-known character of Mendoza’s history. Personal friend of Don Jose de San Martin, tradition says that he rested in Casa Molina before undertaking the historic Cruce de los Andes.

Winery kept on developing in this House thru Bodega La Resurreccion, producer of high quality wines. Years later, the offspring have decided to pick up legacy and go back to the family business, keeping as main principle to offer an excellent wine as our history has taught to.
