Mexico, with Richard Bost

7th June 2019

Did you know that Mexico makes some rather good wine? We welcome back Richard Bost, to remind us us just how good some of these wines are.

Perhaps surprisingly, Mexico was the first country to make wine in the Americas, before Chile, Argentina, and even California, and its history of wine-making dates from 1521, one year after the arrival of the Spanish Conquistadors.

The wines are made in the North-West of Mexico in an area known as the Baja California Peninsula. This temperate area has the Pacific Ocean to the West and the Gulf of California to the East. It is also cooled by the Alaskan Current, and this gives climatic conditions similar to the Napa and Sonoma Valleys, including the morning fogs.

During the evening, we will be tasting four white wines and four reds, all made from International grape varietals.

The place is St Barnabas Church Hall, Pitshanger Lane. The time is 8pm. And the cost will be £20/head.
