With the incursion of new wineries and wine regions, Wine Guide Mexicanos , of Arturo Bodenstet , has become a reflection of the evolution of winemaking in the country . For the eighth year,Bodenstet tasted blind 595 wines , divided them by price, he called and made ​​425 tasting notes. The specialist said that the guide is not written for winemakers , sommeliers and experts, it is the reflection of your palate and tastes. “My only goal is that people take Mexican wine . I have no preference for a warehouse, the process is objective and partial to the tasting notes are fair. Not about taste by taste to give a score, it’s about understanding what the winemaker wanted to express, “he says in an interview.

“This year there are 40 wineries who first presented their wines. I liked Lechuza, Casta Wine and racking, but there are pleasant surprises, ever better wines are made ​​in the country. ” To the publication, Arturo Bodenstet takes about three months. Asks the first wineries to send their wines of the year, it takes about 30 meetings with a panel of tasters from 10 to 12 people. “We are dedicated to test 15 to 20 wines per session. Tasted wines by price range, never compare an economic one expensive, I maintain respect. ” In the seven years he has published the guide, has also become a thermometer to assess how it has grown thewine industry in Mexico , not only in quantity, also in quality and diversity.
