Château Camou

“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.

The Vineyard
Nestled against picturesque mountains in Cañada del Trigo, in the heart of the Valle de Guadalupe – the water in our heavenly valley has fewer unwanted minerals, the temperature is a little cooler at night, and this allows the vines to rest more than the surrounding vineyards.  They also count with different types of soil – clay, a blend of clay and sand and sandy – all of these are perfect for growing different grapes.

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.
