In Spring, a Young Man’s Fancy Turns to… Wine?

Dreaming of a crisp, cool glass of Sauvignon Blanc right about now? These grapes are maturing to that very goal here at our Los Senderos winery!

Sure, why not?  Autumn and vendemmia shouldn’t always have all the fun!  We here at the Los Senderos winery pay special attention to our budding vines come spring… harvest is only five months away.

In fact, spring wine festivals across the globe grab oenophile’s attention right about now, although remember, most North Americans suffer from a spring that lags our gorgeous spring in Mexico by a couple of months.  Mount Vernon’s Spring Wine Festival—boasting 16 Virginia wineries—celebrates in mid-May, but it’s preceded by Las Vegas’ grand annual early May celebration, Vegas Uncork’d, a Bon Appétit-hosted event that sports an astounding array of celebrity chefs, from Alain Ducasse and Todd English, to Nobu Matsuhisa and Bobby Flay.

And lest you think they only drink sweet tea in The Big Easy, New Orleans aims to set you straight—or Sideways, as Miles might say—with their 20th annual New Orleans Wine & Food Experience. I wonder what wine goes with pralines..?

What about Mexican wines, you ask? Fodors just returned from the Cancun-Riviera Maya Wine & Food Festival, where chef Enrique Olvera—chef at our local Hotel Matilda’s Moxi restaurant—headlined the event while Juan Carlos Flores Mazón, Mexico’s Best Sommelier 2004 and a Five Diamond Award winner, guided tasters through their paces.

As April temps in San Miguel de Allende begin to climb, you may be dreaming of a nice, crisp glass of Sauvignon Blanc. We are too! They’re growing right here in our own Los Senderos winery. Come for a tour, or book your next event at our winery, and hoist a toast to Bacchus!
