No Mexican wines in neighbouring United States ?
I work for Robert Whitley, who in addition to being a wine writer and publisher of WineReviewOnline.com acts as Director for several international wine competitions. During the recent San Diego competition (March 21; wwwSDIWC.com), I noticed that no wines from Mexico were entered. From all over the US, and from Europe, South Africa, Chile, Australian, even Korea, but none from our neighbor Mexico.
We are now working on the Critics Challenge competition, which will be held on May 23 and 24. The website is www.CriticsChallenge.com. What makes it unique is all the judges are professional wine writers and reviewers. This might be a great way for Mexican wineries to expose their wines to these writers, as well as to the public through the medals they would win. Results of the competition will also be posted on WineReviewOnline.com.
Could you please pass on information about the competition to wineries you feel might benefit, or suggest ways in which I might do that? I would appreciate any assistance. It just seems a shame that the fact that fine wine is being made in Mexico is completely unknown to most wine lovers in the U.S.
Thanks in advance for any help,
Competition Coordinator and Assistant to Director Robert Whitley
