The Hacienda de Amatitlán was owned by Nicolás de la Peña Pareja. His son, Fernando de la Peña Arias, married Esther Rosales Gómez Cuervo and on 17 February 1917 had a daughter Gabriela who spent her first years on the hacienda. The family moved to live in Guadalajara and years later emigrated to Los Angeles, California, and then returned to settle in Mexico City where Gabriela served as a bilingual secretary in various jobs. From a very young age and during her stays at the Hacienda de San José del Refugio she was interested in everything related to the tequila business, knowledge she acquired from her uncle David Rosales Gómez Cuervo. David died in 1956 and left his inheritance to his sister, Esther. When she died in 1973 Gabriela inherited the complete casco of the ex-hacienda de San José del Refugio, land with agave plantations, properties in Amatitán and Guadalajara, and the company Tequila Herradura S.A de C.V., which she built up until her death in 1994.
