The Pérez Medina, as many others, was a family of little wine and spirit producers in the small town of Santa Maria de las Parras, in northern XVIII century New Spain (Mexico). The wine and spirit producers of this town --as some others in Nueva Vizcaya-- were privileged with tax exemption (producing and commerce taxes). With a small initial investment, Pablo José Pérez and Maria Josefa Medina, his wife, bought two little vineyards that produced enough as to raise ten children, buy their own house and multiply ten times the total value of their possesions. The history of this family is interweaved with the history of the work in their little vineyards
