Cerro Chapeu was born from the tradition that our family has dedicated to wine for more than ten generations, started in Catalonia by Francisco Carrau Vehils in 1752 and in Uruguay since 1930. In 1975, Quico Carrau Pujol, in collaboration with the University of California Davis, began the search for a terroir to plant the first virus-free vines. This place had to have qualities that would adapt to the climate of Uruguay, sandy soils and slopes that would allow good drainage to avoid excess water in the vine. In 1997 Francisco Carrau, ninth generation and youngest son of Quico, after visiting wineries in different parts of the world, designed the winery, deciding to build it inside a hill to take advantage of gravity and thus achieve winemaking with minimal manipulation of the musts.
