Corbeau means crow in French. The name was born from the story that the grandfather told his grandchildren:
“When he bought the first vineyard, he went to visit it and said that he had seen a very black bird perched on a wire. He said it was a raven. A few years later, when he started to harvest, he saw that the color of the grapes was much more intense than normal compared to the grapes in the area. So the explanation he was telling us was that that crow protected the vineyard and had given the color to the grapes. "Francisco Rodríguez
The arid lands and the desert dunes were conditioned to give space to unique plantations, being a tribute to the noble traditional wine culture. Its vineyards are the full expression of Mendoza's vines. A constant contrast between technology that blends into the landscape in an impeccable and wonderful harmony.
Since the creation of the winery in 2016, the Rodríguez family has sought to make Corbeau Wines a disruptive project, both with its wines and with its proposal in general, and break with the traditional structures of the industry. Following this path, the family winery decided to launch the first campaign - pioneer of its kind in the wine sector - of the wine industry in support of diversity: "Wine Is Love", whose objective is to accompany and make visible the fight for respect of rights and the recognition of equality. It is a limited edition of their Mad Bird line.
“I am a third generation in the wine industry and for many years I heard that it was a traditionalist world. Although it is a drink that has a lot of history, it must also adapt and commit to the present. We must be aware of reality, receptive and committed: we want to be the first to carry out a campaign of this kind, but we don't want to be the last ”. Francisco Rodriguez
