The story tells that since the 19th century, passion for making wine has run in the veins of the Gimenez Riili family.
Back in 1890, Don Fernando Riili arrived in Argentina from Sicily, together with his wife and five of his thirteen children, in search of new horizons. The family settled in Colonia Segovia, Guaymallén, in the province of Mendoza.
It is said that the charming soil of this region encouraged Don Fernando to pursue his dream of starting his own vineyard outside Europe.
In the midst of this arduous work, eight of his children were born, among them, Fernando Riili junior. Together, they started one of the first family wineries in the region, offering neighbors good demijohn wine.
Years later, Fernando Riili Junior married Irma Gudiño and gave birth to two girls, María and Susana Riili.
And this is the story of the Riili family, a story of dreams and prosperity.
Meanwhile, in 1905, Don Pedro Gimenez Padilla travelled form the magic land of Granada in Spain to Argentina with his parents and siblings.
The Giménez settled in Maipú, precisely in a district called Kilómetro 8, and committed themselves to the work of the land.
Already married to Ángela Escobar and father of seven children, among them Eduardo, Don Pedro dreamed of his own vineyard.
In 1945 that dream came true when he bought a property in La Primavera, Maipú. Together with his children, he threw himself into the meticulous work of planting the vine.
This is the story of endeavor and longing of the Gimenez family.
Some years later, Eduardo Gimenez meets Susana Riili. They got married on warm December day in 1967. The two stories merge into one, and all of their dreams and passions start to interweave.
After the death of their father, Eduardo and his siblings purchased and restored a winery in Rodeo de la Cruz in Guaymallén where they start making and selling their own wines.
As a result of their hard work, the Gimenez siblings build a larger winery, also in Rodeo de la Cruz in 1979, to keep the family tradition alive.
Five boys were born out of the love between Eduardo and Susana. From a young age, they cherished and inherited the passion for winemaking from their parents and ancestors.
The Gimenez Riili now share a single story that emerges from family bonds, diversity of opinions and the commitment to moving forward with passion, brotherhood and work.
