Monte Xanic Wines
The Name “Xanic” the flower that blooms after the first rain, comes from the indigenous Cora Indians who today live in regions of Nayarit, between Puerto Vallarta an Mazatlán on Mexico´s Pacific Coast. In November 1987 during the partners first visit to the 200 acres that are today part of our vineyards, the first rain of the season began to fall, suggesting the name "Monte Xanic".
In 1987, Monte Xanic's founding partners, all wine enthusiasts, sought to create a great Mexican wine. Their vision was to produce excellent quality wines with unique personality that reflect and express with distinction the native soil in the Valley of Guadalupe, Baja California. Over the years this dream has been realized; Monte Xanic Wines are among the best quality wines in Mexico and throughout the world.
Monte Xanic wines have been awarded gold, silver and bronze medals in the United States, France and Canada. And perhaps more importantly…our wines are on the tables of people who seek out and appreciate fine wines.
