From September 4 to 6, the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles 2020 was held in the city of Brno, in the Czech Republic. And to the surprise of many, Mexico not only won some categories of the contest but also swept over 50 recognitions.
This event is something never seen before, since the Brussels World Contest was instituted, Mexico had not received so many medals. In this 2020 she took home 2 Great Gold Medals, 19 Gold Medals, and 37 Silver. In addition, the Pozo de Luna Malbec 2015, by Vinícola Pozo de Luna, who recommended us to visit Ariel Montes in San Luis Potosí, was recognized as a Revelation of Mexico.
The awards placed our country among the top 10 winning countries. A group dominated by Spain, France, Italy, Portugal, and Chile. This means that Mexican wine deserves a position on the list of countries already established in wine production.
Among the winners are the wineries of Monte Xanic, El Cielo, San Lorenzo, LA Cetto, Pedro Domecq, Hilo Negro and Hacienda Florida, as well as Santos Brujos, the only Mexican wine with biodynamic certification. The best news is that the winners are not only from the Valle de Guadalupe region, the wineries of Querétaro, Coahuila, Aguascalientes, Ensenada, Guanajuato and Chihuahua achieved ratings never seen before.
Mexico is a small wine producer but little by little it has taken center stage in international competitions. Not for nothing do we have the best Cabernet Sauvignon according to the Concours International Des Cabernets.
If you were left with the desire for more Mexican wine, here we will tell you about good, beautiful, and cheap labels to open any day of the week. In addition, some online stores such as Mercado de Vinos and Vid Mexicana have put together packages ranging from less than $ 1000 to $ 5000 and include between two and six bottles, so that you order the winning labels and they arrive directly at your home.
