The company has a history spanning centuries, dating back to 1752, when Francisco Carrau Vehils bought the first family vineyard in Catalonia. The heirs arrive in Uruguay in 1930, Juan Carrau Sust with his wife Catalina Pujol and five children including Juan Francisco Carrau Pujol.
It was he who founded Bodegas Carrau in 1976, a winery with great ambitions. Juan Carrau Sust imported virus-free vines of clonal selection with revolutionary criteria for the time. Today, the winery is known worldwide as an emblem of excellence of Uruguayan wines.
