Hacienda Encinillas is located in Valle de Encinillas, in northern Mexico, with vineyards planted at over 1500 meters (about 5000 feet) above sea level.
The first vines were planted in 2004 in the clay and gravel soil on land located at high altitudes. The vineyard is located more than 5000 meters above sea level, which allows greater thermal amplitude – sun exposure during the day and low temperatures in the evening, considered optimal conditions for viticulture.
Don Eloy Vallina, the president of Grupo Hacienda Encinillas, describes their wines as “chihuahua wines supported by all latest European technology.” They consulted with famed French oenologist Michel Rolland to develop techniques and invest in technology that could bring their wines to the next level.
Their most popular wine is Megacero, which is a staple in the wine lists of most restaurants in Mexico that offer local wines. It’s a bold blend of Merlot, Shiraz, and Cabernet Sauvignon, very fruit-forward and jammy, a great representation of New World red wines.
