Welcome, Vangy. We've had a couple of Forum participants active in the past from Mexico but they seem on break now. Go ahead and post more, though, and they may reappear!

Sorry for the English reply, but my Spanish reading's a lot faster than my writing.

Bienvenidos a Snooth Vangy. I also find it harder to write in Spanish than to read it, so I'll respond in English.

The only wines that I am familiar with from Mexico are from the Valle de Guadalupe area in Baja California. I visited there a few years ago and found the wines to be quite good and very reasonably priced. Would be interested in any information you could provide on wines from other regions of Mexico. Unfortunately, wines from Mexico are not readily available for purchase in the USA at this time.

90 to 95 percent of Mexico wine is from the Valle de Guadalupe, so you have to the area where most of them come from.  The tariffs between the US and Mexico make them expensive on each side (Mexican wines in the US and US wines in Mexico.  Some wine shops in the LA/San Diego area will carry Mexican wines, but not many.

Hola Vangy and all.

Tambien esta el valle de Parras en Coahuila, con la tradicional Casa Madero, la vitivinicola mas antigua del continente americano, con excelentes vinos premiados a nivel internacional; y mas recientemente Bodegas Rivero Gonzalez con una muy buena oferta de vinos tintos, blanco y rosado. Hay tambien un grupo de nuevos vitivinicultores cuyos viñedos esperamos comiencen a sacar sus productos en el futuro muy cercano.

Saludos desde el Valle de Parras!

Aside from the hello line at the beginning, and the salutations from the Parras Valley ending, Alidas had this to say:

"Also there's the Parras Valley in Coahuila, with its traditional Casa Madero, the oldest winemaking in the Americas, including excellent international award-winning wines. More recently is Bodegas Gonzalez Rivero, offering a very good range of reds, whites and roses. Further, the area has a new group of winemakers who will introduce their products in the near future."

Alidas, thanks for this info. Can you tell us more about the wines you mention?

Baja California, Mexico has more wine growing areas, most of them sorrounding Ensenada, Valle de Guadalupe on the north, Valle de Santo Tomas on the south, Viñedos de Santo Tomas have some pretty good varietals and blends, try the Tempranillo varietal, my all time favorite.

I have very limited experience with Mexican wine.  The first was a conversation with the winemaker and a tasting of Chateau Camou bottlings about 6-7 years ago.  My recollection was that he had a Bordeaux blend that was pretty good.

I used my more recent experience to start a Snooth Forum conversation regarding a bottle of Casa Pedro Domecq 2007 Reserva Real.  This wine is a blend of Barbera and Ruby Cabernet grapes sourced from Valle de Califia, which, I believe is near Ensenada.  I found it to also be a good wine and would eagerly try more Mexican wines.
