The Goyenechea winery was founded in 1868 by the brothers Santiago and Narciso Goyenechea in Villa Atuel, south of Mendoza province. Between 1930 and 1940, together with the Arizu family, they came to own the largest vineyard in the world, and their wines, produced by the third generation of the family, were already sold throughout the country under different brands. Around 1965, the fourth family generation enters and the activity is focused exclusively on bottled premium wines.
