Few know that viticulture in the province began in the middle of the nineteenth century. Columbus, Concordia and Federación were the producing cities. In 1910 Entre Rios owned 4900 areas of vineyards, represented in 60 wineries. At the beginning of 1900, the province was the fourth national producer of grapes and wines. Part of the production was marketed in the province, and through ports through maritime transport, part of the Buenos Aires, Rosario, Santa Fe market was also supplied and exported to Uruguay and Brazil.
The dictator Agustín P. Justo in 1936, despite being born in Concepción del Uruguay , made a decree prohibiting the production of wine and grapes in all provinces that did not have part of the Cuyo region. This caused the area to lose much of its income and that employers and workers had to migrate in search of other opportunities.
Sixty-one years had to pass until that absurd ban was lifted. At that time a family decided to resume the project of their grandparents. This is how in 2003 they began with the planting of three hectares of vineyards and the reconstruction of the winery. It is equipped with the necessary technology for the production of high-end wines, has received several international awards. Currently they exceed 70,000 bottles annually with grapes produced exclusively from their vineyards. The Vulliez Sermet winery takes a tour of the property every day at 11:00 with tasting.
