2023 Sauvignon Blanc - Santo Tomás

The Santo Tomás Estate

- Santo Tomás is the oldest winery in the Baja region. Jesuit missionaries first established vineyards, (now privately held) in 1791, just 5 years after the US signed its Constitution. Over a century later, in 1888 the land was purchased by Francisco Adonegui and Spaniard Miguel Olmart and became Mexico's first large scale commercial winery.

- The largest landowners in the 5 valleys of northern Baja, Santo Tomás has access to some of the best fruit available. The quality and balance of their wines is a signature of the estate. 

- Winemaker Laura Zamora passed the baton she held since 2003 to the talented Christina Pino in 2019, and the first results of Christina's efforts are all that we'd hoped for. Expect to see this estate delivering increasingly high levels of quality. Christina plans to lower yields, increase quality, and work towards fully organic farming.

  • Tasting Notes and Drinking Window:

    A small production wine within one of the larger estates in Mexico, this Sauvignon Blanc is a champion of the estate and a wine that ranks as winemaker Christina Pino's favorite. With four vintages under her belt as winemaker at this estate the 2023 shows she has mastered the options at her disposal, (no small task considering the vast holdings of this estate that are under vine) as it is a refinement of the 2022, and the 21 and 20 before it. A challenging year for whites if you didn’t play your cards just right, this wine shows demonstrates without question that Christina did.
