Explore Mexican Wine on Gina Naya's blog
If you’re a wine lover planning a trip to Puerto Vallarta (or anywhere in Mexico,) this is the blog to read. Gina Naya's Blog details the best of the local wines (who knew?), wine restaurants, as well as smart food pairings that will have you shunning reposado and shouting "me gusta la vino roja de Mexico!" (Don't judge me, my Spanish is quite rusty.)
Naya describes recent wine events featuring such goodies as Catena Zapata wines, the Argentine wine push into Mexico, while sharing photos from a recent trip to Mexico's premier winery, Castillo de las Minas. Naya, no wine novice, describes each wine’s nose, body and ideal food pairings from her tastings there.
Naya obviously is a cheerleader for her city, region and country – and especially for the artisan winemakers – but her enthusiasm and beautiful photos make it a site to see prior to a journey (or weekend trip) to sunny Mexico.
