The Isasmendi family has a wine-growing history that dates back to 1831, when the last royal governor of Salta, Don Nicolás Severo de Isasi Isasmendi y Echalar, founded Colomé, the oldest operating winery in Argentina. In 1854, his daughter Ascensión Isasmendi introduced the first pre-phylloxera Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec vines from France.
Colomé belonged to the family for 170 years, until the Hess group acquired it in 2001.
Motivated by this legacy, Ricardo and Sylvie founded Bodega Isasmendi in 2005, a family business in which grandparents, parents and children participate today.
