Discover with Mexican Wines the winery Freixenet; Spanish Cava wine legacy
In 1978, a Catalana company, bought some land to establish a winery in the north of Tequisquiapan, in the Mexican state of Querétaro; a good land for vineyards of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Macabeu, among others. In 1984, they bottled their first following the traditional method of Champenoise. The 10th November (what a beautiful date hehehe, those that dont know me, it´s my birthday!) 1986 (not the year i was born…i wish tho!) was officially opened the winery of Freixenet in México, with a new name called “Finca Doña Dolores”
In 1977, the Catalán José Antonio Llaquet took the management of Freixenet de México as manager and enologist. With his wife as PR made this winery a successful one. Since then, the quality and name of their wines has been growing.
Now with the management of Jordi G. Fos, Enologist by profession and an experience of more than 18 years producing “Cava” and wines in Cataluña, the Alt Penedés zone, the winery is starting a new phase with renovated energy and many new ideas.
