About the Wine
The story of the wines of the "New World" begins with a land grant from King Felipe II of Spain in 1597. Don Lorenzo Garcia was appointed to produce wine and brandy for the crown at the Hacienda de San Lorenzo. This set the stage for what is now acknowledged as the oldest winery in the Americas.
In 1893, Evaristo Madero purchased the property. His grandson, Francisco Madero would become one of the initiators of the 1910 Mexican Revolution and later become president of Mexico.
Located in the north-central part of Mexico in Coahuila, at the foothills of the Sierra Madre Mountains, the Parras Valley is blessed with abundant water and the high elevation of 5000 feet provides warm days and cool nights.
Today, the modern winery is leading the modernization and future of winemaking in Mexico. The winery is ISO 9000 certified by the Lloyds Register. Several parcels now have USDA National Organic Program compliance. The winery is the first winery in the Americas to be recognized as a Grandes Pagos, the highest designation a winery can receive from the Spanish government. Currently, only 17 wineries in Spain have this designation.
And, the wines have won 800 medals to date at some of the most important international wine competitions around the world.
If you've traveled to Mexico, you may have seen the Gran Reserva wines on wine lists at the best restaurants in Mexico for $200-400/btl. This is a unique opportunity to taste the value and quality of Mexican wines.
Tasting Notes:Rose. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is pale pink with copper reflections. On the nose delicate aromas of candied orange, fresh red fruits, and apricot sneak into nostrils. The wine is slightly sweet with a smooth entry; fruity, fresh, and good intensity.
These wines are a revelation. What are you waiting for?
