One hundred years ago, Francisco Madero, Pancho Villa and Emiliano Zapata led the Mexican Revolution.
Today, Mexico is going through a different sort of upheaval, a wine revolution in which small producers largely concentrated in Baja California’s Guadalupe Valley are charging ahead with the declaration, “Viva El Vino!” -Michael Schachner, Wine Enthusiast Magazine, 2012
Curious about Mexico’s burgeoning wine industry? Plan on joining Merida wine expert Elliot Diaz on Saturday, Feb. 28, 11 AM to get the scoop–and taste– on some of the country’s excellent wines. Diaz is the owner of “Taninos Para Todos”, a wine and spirits shop in Colonia Mexico in Merida, Yucatán.
He and Taninos are also the generous donors of various vintages to MEL events.
Diaz’s talk is part of MEL’s ongoing Saturday Lecture Series. Cost for this talk and tasting is 100 pesos, and attendance is limited. Event takes place in MEL’s garden.
