Sample 6 wines from one of the best producers in Baja California. We will be pouring Roganto’s Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc, Tempranillo, and Meritage blend.
Roganto Wine (or Vides y Vinos Californianos S.P.R. de R.L) is considered by experts to be one of the top wineries in Mexico. In fact, last year a special wine tasting event organized by Mexico’s top independent wine experts and specialists was held at 13,200 feet in elevation (creating superior tasting conditions) where they chose 2005 Roganto Tempranillo as the second best wine in the country.
Even though Roganto winery is technically a boutique winery in size and production, it could classify as an artisan winery due to the high quality and individual attention focused on each vintage of wine. Their state-of-the-art winery facility is a real hidden treasure of Ensenada located behind a well drilling and commercial pump business – just a few miles south of downtown on Reforma Ave. Two wine enthusiasts, Rogelio Sanchez and Antonio Luis Escalante have teamed up to create the remarkable Roganto wines. It’s almost a “top secret” and access to the tasting room is limited to serious wine lovers and those with “inquiring palates.”
