The origin of the vineyard: The Spaniard Francisco de Carabantes, vine-grower from Peru, created the Tacama vineyard, the first in South America.
Spain, by a protectionist measure, prohibits the import of wines from Peru. Its distillation is promoted, thus emerging the Peruvian grape brandy: Pisco.
The Tacama Vineyard is now owned by the San Agustín de Ica Convent. The architecture created at that time is maintained until today.
