Singani, during colonial and surely during the process of the War of Independence and in the early republican decades, was important. Otherwise, it would not appear on the map of the main Church of Camargo.

Screen Shot 2014-12-14 at 10.53.19 AMBy the grace of the struggle for market wines and spirits that brought fame to the artisanal and industrial production of Camargo, Sud Cinti, Chuquisaca, the geographical point “Singani” was brought to this as a real witness and tercentenary, that the adjective Singani, was linked to the house of San Pedro and that, consequently, there was a historical symbiosis.

The bottom of what was the “war of Singani” and that mobilized the winemakers and producers of wine and spirits in the department of Tarija, was the nominative “Singani” but also the incoming wine and spirits thru the so-called free border, by smuggling.

For groups of tarijeño vineyards’ owners and its products, the word “Singani” possibly did not have an owner and it could very well be used on the labels of the bottles.
