It’s #WineWednesday in La Rotonda Bar at The Royal Haciendas, our Riviera Maya resort. Don’t miss the new Wine Tasting at The Royal Haciendas every Wednesday afternoon from 4 to 5 p.m.
Your host Alejandro Cruz is a mine of information on the world of wine and he will share his passion and knowledge with you.
You will be sampling wines from Mexico and learning about the history of wine production in the country, which dates back to the 16th century and the grapes grown by missionaries in the gardens of the first monasteries and on haciendas.
However, despite its long history, the Mexican wine industry really took off in the 1980s. The Guadalupe and Santo Tomás Valleys near Ensenada in Baja California and the Parras Valley in Coahuila have both produced international award winning wines in recent years and the number of wineries is growing. On this occasion you’ll be trying Mexican wines made from Zinfandel, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.
The cost is US$20 per person and space is very limited. Reservations are required, ext. 66214.
