"Mariatinto is the beginning and also the culmination of a dream and a long enological project, where the only purpose is to create a wine of outstanding quality with all the expression of Baja California."
Mariatinto started in 2002, as a winemaking project unique in its time. Not part of a proposed winery with vineyards, but an established winemaker's portfolio of wines and a lot of barrels. It begins with the assembly of a Guadalupe Valley wine that could reach the tables of the best restaurants in Mexico, without being expensive with a clear focus on the Old World wines.
The first harvest resulted in an assembly of 25 barrels, which resulted in the desired wine: complex, elegant nose, mouth, palate, not tired and that can support a wide range of dishes without overpowering them.
Each vintage, from the first, 2002 to current 2009, have changed the mix of grapes, while respecting the essence in style. Tempranillo, Grenache and Syrah have been the base, used as ornaments and accessories in the mouth aromatic Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Mourvedre and Petite Sirah from different vineyards in the area.
