5 wines. Baja California, Mexico menu.
Tons of fun.
This year we return to Baja California, Mexico via South Australia with Somos Wines, the brainchild of two cool dudes – Ben Caldwell (AU) and Mauricio Ruiz Cantu (MX). These guys focus on “alternative’ varietals (for their respective place) from sustainable vineyards – think elegant Aglianico from McLaren Vale, cool co-ferment of Carignan and Cinsault, and wild fermented Cab Franc picked in two sessions for some real herbaceous/generously juicy balance.
Born of a cross continental friendship formed when Mauricio was studying oenology and viticulture in Australia, what started as a single shipment back home to Baja of Barossa Shiraz dubbed “Juguette” has since blossomed into Somos Wines. Celebrating the diverse, bright, fresh foods of Baja California, these minimal intervention wines made by friends from across the globe are a perfect expression of the new generation of winemaking today.
