“It all started with my father’s desire of creating world class wines…”
Fernando Favela Vara is the founder of Château Camou, he was appointed by his Father to turn his dream into reality. They traveled the world and its wineries and after tasting a lot of wine, they decided to create Bordeaux style wines - hence their raison d’être… born in 1995 - the Gran Vino Tinto.
This wine becomes gateway of Mexican wines into the wine world after being the first Mexican winery to ever win an International Grand Gold Medal in 2000 at the
Concours Mondial Bruxelles. And in 2018, the first to win a Grand Gold Bacchus - also with their Gran Vino Tinto.
Château Camou produces age-worthy, terroir-focused wines, most notably classic Bordeaux blends as well as single varietals like Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Grenache and Zinfandel.
Today they have 21.5 hectares (47 acres) planted to the many varieties.
