Mexican Vintner Revolutionizes Wine

A vintage black-and-white photograph of pistol-packing rebels in big sombreros is an unlikely image to find on your bottle of wine, unless, of course, you plan to drink to the revolution. And that’s exactly what Mexican wine maker Casa Madero has in mind.

Mexico’s oldest winery unveiled this week a special limited edition red wine to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Mexican Revolution. To make 3V Edicion Centenario 1910-2010, Casa Madero “combined three of the best grapes of the region – cabernet sauvignon, merlot and shiraz,” said Daniel Milmo, the company’s director of sales. “The wine was then aged for 18 months in fine oak barrels, bottled with no filtration, and aged for another nine months to achieve a truly top-tier product.”
