The family name, Borjón, originated in the country of France. Our owner Iscander “Isy” Borjóns great, great grandfather migrated to Mexico in the mid-1860’s during the French/Mexican war, also known as the Maximilian Affair.
The Borjón family comes from the small town of Paracuaro in the state of Guanajuato, Mexico. Isy’s parents Jesus and Nora Borjón arrived in the Shenandoah Valley over 30 years ago. Jesus began working in the vineyards doing every job imaginable while Nora was a stay at home mother with their three children. Eventually Jesus and Nora had saved enough to start their own small labor contracting business in 1991. The drive and work ethic of Jesus lead to the unimaginable expansion of Borjón Labor Contracting and Vineyard Management.
Having provided the valley with labor services since 1991, the Borjóns had always enjoyed the taste of wine and had always dreamt of having a winery of their own. Seeing first hand the tremendous growth in the valley and the addition of so many wineries only added to the desire of one day being winery owners.
