Mexican Wine

 

The history of Mexican wine production begins in the 1500s, when Hernan Cortes and his conquistadors exhausted their supply of wine while overthrowing the Aztecs. He ordered the colonists to plant 1000 grapevines for every 100 native “employees.” (Needless to say, “that mensch” is not something you hear people say about Cortes.) The Spanish conquistadors had vines brought over for religious mass, and more likely, wash down their food. With failed attempts to grow grapes in the more tropical regions of Mexico, the first grapes, known as Criolla (the mission grape of California and the Pais grape of Chile), were successfully planted in the Parras Valley of Coahuila. Growing in Puebla and Zacatecas soon followed. The first Mexican wine estate, Casa Madero, was founded in 1597 by Lorenzo Garcia in Santa Maria de los Parras in Coahuila and still exists.

  • Tres Valles Kuwal Baja California 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Clear garnet color. Astringent nose with some red berry fruit aroma. On the tongue, light on the red fruit flavor, and very earthy. Very rustic feeling. Slight bitterness on the back of the palate adds to the rustic characterization. Not a sophisticated or complex wine at all, but, all in all, seems like a good match with hamburgers. Read More
